In Zukunft werden Milliarden "Dinge" über das Internet miteinander verbunden sein. Hierdurch entstehen jedoch auch gigantische Sicherheitsrisiken. In diesem Buch beschreibt der international renommierte IT-Sicherheitsexperte Nitesh Dhanjani, wie Geräte im Internet of Things von Angreifern missbraucht werden können – seien es drahtlose LED-Lampen, elektronische Türschlösser, Babyfone, Smart-TVs oder Autos mit Internetanbindung. Wenn Sie Anwendungen für Geräte entwickeln, die mit dem Internet verbunden sind, dann unterstützt Dhanjani Sie mit diesem Leitfaden bei der Erkennung und Behebung von Sicherheitslücken. Er erklärt Ihnen nicht nur, wie Sie Schwachstellen in IoT-Systemen identifizieren, sondern bietet Ihnen auch einen umfassenden Einblick in die Taktiken der Angreifer. In diesem Buch werden Sie • Design, Architektur und sicherheitstechnische Aspekte drahtloser Beleuchtungssysteme analysieren, • verstehen, wie elektronische Türschlösser geknackt werden, • Mängel im Sicherheitsaufbau von Babyfonen untersuchen, • die Sicherheitsfunktionen von Smart-Home-Geräten bewerten, • Schwachstellen von Smart-TVs kennenlernen, • Sicherheitslücken "intelligenter" Autos erforschen, • realistische Angriffsszenarios verstehen, die auf der gängigen Nutzung von IoT-Geräten durch Anwender beruhen. Darüber hinaus zeigt Ihnen Nitesh Dhanjani Prototyping-Methoden, die Sicherheitsfragen bereits bei den allerersten Entwürfen berücksichtigen. Schließlich erhalten Sie einen Ausblick auf neue Angriffsformen, denen IoTSysteme in Zukunft ausgesetzt sein werden.

Ready to take your IT skills to the healthcare industry? This concise book provides a candid assessment of the US healthcare system as it ramps up its use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other forms of IT to comply with the government’s Meaningful Use requirements. It’s a tremendous opportunity for tens of thousands of IT professionals, but it’s also a huge challenge: the program requires a complete makeover of archaic records systems, workflows, and other practices now in place. This book points out how hospitals and doctors’ offices differ from other organizations that use IT, and explains what’s necessary to bridge the gap between clinicians and IT staff. Get an overview of EHRs and the differences among medical settings Learn the variety of ways institutions deal with patients and medical staff, and how workflows vary Discover healthcare’s dependence on paper records, and the problems involved in migrating them to digital documents Understand how providers charge for care, and how they get paid Explore how patients can use EHRs to participate in their own care Examine healthcare’s most pressing problem—avoidable errors—and how EHRs can both help and exacerbate it
