Description - Security in Fixed and Wireless Networks by Gunter Schafer
Our society's increasing dependence on information technology and communication networks renders the complex topic of network security fundamentally important. Security in Fixed and Wireless Networks is a comprehensive introduction to the principles of information security, explaining in detail how they are applied in communication networks. It will help you to understand the risks of inappropriate network security, what mechanisms and protocols can be deployed to counter these risks, and how these mechanisms and protocols work. Starting with a description of the key threats and requirements, Gunter Schafer goes on to explain the algorithmic foundations of practical security solutions and how they are incorporated into network protocols and architectures. Security in Fixed and Wireless Networks covers: Fundamentals of cryptology such as symmetric/asymmetric cryptography, cryptographic check values, random number generation, and access control. Integration of security services, link layer security protocols, IPSec security architecture, transport layer security protocols, and Internet firewalls in detail. Secure wireless and mobile communications.

Author Biography - Gunter Schafer
Dr.-Ing. Gunter Schafer studied computer science at the Universitat Karlsruhe Germany. from 1989 to 1994. After his studies he continued there as a member of the scientific staff at the Institute of Telematics. He received his doctorate on the topic Efficient Authentication and Key Management in High-Performance Networks in October 1998. In February 1999 Dr. Schafer took a postdoctoral position at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications in Paris, France, where he focused on network security and access network performance of third-generation mobile communication networks. Since August 2000, Dr. Schafer has been at the Technische Universitat Berlin, Germany, where he is involved in research and lectures on the subject of telecommunications networks. His main subject areas are network security, mobile communications, and active network technologies. Gunter Schafer is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Gesellschaft fur Informatik (German Computer Science Society).
