Use Trusted Computing to Make PCs Safer, More Secure, and More Reliable Every year, computer security threats become more severe. Software alone can no longer adequately defend against them: what’s needed is secure hardware. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) makes that possible by providing a complete, open industry standard for implementing trusted computing hardware subsystems in PCs. Already available from virtually every leading PC manufacturer, TPM gives software professionals powerful new ways to protect their customers. Now, there’s a start-to-finish guide for every software professional and security specialist who wants to utilize this breakthrough security technology. Authored by innovators who helped create TPM and implement its leading-edge products, this practical book covers all facets of TPM technology: what it can achieve, how it works, and how to write applications for it. The authors offer deep, real-world insights into both TPM and the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Software Stack. Then, to demonstrate how TPM can solve many of today’s most challenging security problems, they present four start-to-finish case studies, each with extensive C-based code examples. Coverage includes What services and capabilities are provided by TPMs TPM device drivers: solutions for code running in BIOS, TSS stacks for new operating systems, and memory-constrained environments Using TPM to enhance the security of a PC’s boot sequence Key management, in depth: key creation, storage, loading, migration, use, symmetric keys, and much more Linking PKCS#11 and TSS stacks to support applications with middleware services What you need to know about TPM and privacy--including how to avoid privacy problems Moving from TSS 1.1 to the new TSS 1.2 standard TPM and TSS command references and a complete function library

Leverage Your Security Expertise in IBM® System z™ Mainframe Environments For over 40 years, the IBM mainframe has been the backbone of the world’s largest enterprises. If you’re coming to the IBM System z mainframe platform from UNIX ® , Linux ® , or Windows ® , you need practical guidance on leveraging its unique security capabilities. Now, IBM experts have written the first authoritative book on mainframe security specifically designed to build on your experience in other environments. Even if you’ve never logged onto a mainframe before, this book will teach you how to run today’s z/OS ® operating system command line and ISPF toolset and use them to efficiently perform every significant security administration task. Don’t have a mainframe available for practice? The book contains step-by-step videos walking you through dozens of key techniques. Simply log in and register your book at www.ibmpressbooks.com/register to gain access to these videos. The authors illuminate the mainframe’s security model and call special attention to z/OS security techniques that differ from UNIX, Linux, and Windows. They thoroughly introduce IBM’s powerful Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) security subsystem and demonstrate how mainframe security integrates into your enterprise-wide IT security infrastructure. If you’re an experienced system administrator or security professional, there’s no faster way to extend your expertise into “big iron” environments.

From Federal Express's package tracking Website, to Amazon.com, netcentric computing has been evolving, slowly-but-surely, one solution at a time, since the early 1990s. Over the past year or so, the trickle has grown into a torrent of netcentric innovations of wider and wider scope, developed in companies around the globe. Now, a new enterprise computing paradigm has sprung into being. Until now, there has been no comprehensive netcentric model, clearly defined netcentric system architecture, or established set of guiding principles to help you gear up for this next stage in the evolution of enterprise computing. written by the experts at Andersen Consulting, Netcentric and Client/Server Computing: A Practical Guide, offers you this and more. Of course, a book can never take the place of experts who wrote it, but this revised, updated, and expanded edition of Andersen Consulting's noted guide is an important first step in acquiring the knowledge and skills you need to bring netcentric capabilities into your organization. You'll learn from 13 acknowledged world experts what netcentric computing is, how it works, and how you can use it to provide your organization with an unstoppable competitive edge. Based upon their experiences with mission-critical netcentric implementations at 100 of the most successful business organizations on the planet, these experts explain how netcentric computing can help you enable new business capabilities. Using dozens of fascinating case examples, they show you how to seamlessly integrate computing, communications, and knowledge resources in order to forge solid links among your company's employees, units, customers, suppliers, and partners, regardless of time, location, device, or content. And, they provide priceless advice and guidance on how to exploit the endless array of possibilities provided by netcentric computing to develop exciting new customer services, identify new markets, cut costs, engineer internal processes for improved business performance, and more. Netcentric and Client/Server Computing is divided into four, self-contained sections for ease of reference. Section I introduces you to basic netcentric principles and concepts, provides an overview of state-of-the-art in netcentric computing models, and develops a solid business case for netcentric computing. Section II acquaints you with the various technologies involved and describes a comprehensive netcentric architecture. Section III is devoted to crucial analysis, design, and implementation issues, including design specifics for architectures, applications, and networks; rollout strategies; and ongoing management of distributed operations. Section IV explores emerging technologies and their likely impact on the future of netcentric computing.
