Statistical Methods in Computer Security summarizes discussions held at the recent Joint Statistical Meeting to provide a clear layout of current applications in the field. This blue-ribbon reference discusses the most influential advancements in computer security policy, firewalls, and security issues related to passwords. It addresses crime and misconduct on the Internet, considers the development of infrastructures that may prevent breaches of security and law, and illustrates the vulnerability of networked computers to new virus attacks despite widespread deployment of antivirus software, firewalls, and other network security equipment.
