This book establishes a comprehensive framework for network security design, unifying the many concepts and aspects of network security and enabling all users to employ a common security foundation. It is presented from the perspective of fundamental principles underlying networking, network control algorithms and security. Using an accessible style and careful explanations, the principles and methodology address design concepts for current and future security concerns for networks. "Principles of Secure Network Systems Design" presents the topic in three basic parts. Part one covers the basic background of network security and the current scope for security in all types of networks and organizations. Part two focuses on the essential nature of network security and a scientific methodology for secure network design. Lastly, part three discusses concrete applications of the design concepts with real world networks, using three comprehensive case studies oriented around ATM networks.

Boring DJs who never shut up, and who don't even pick their own records. The same hits, over and over. A constant stream of annoying commercials. How did radio get so dull? Not by accident, contends journalist and historian Jesse Walker. For decades, government and big business have colluded to monopolize the airwaves, stamping out competition, reducing variety, and silencing dissident voices. And yet, in the face of such pressure, an alternative radio tradition has tenaciously survived. Rebels on the Air explores these overlooked chapters in American radio, revealing the legal barriers established broadcasters have erected to ensure their dominance. Using lively anecdotes drawn from firsthand interviews, Walker chronicles the story of the unsung heroes of American radio who, despite those barriers, carved out spaces for themselves in the spectrum, sometimes legally and sometimes not. Walker's engaging, meticulous account is the first comprehensive history of alternative radio in the United States. From the unlicensed amateurs who invented broadcasting to the community radio movement of the 1960s and 1970s, from the early days of FM to today's micro radio movement, Walker lays bare the hidden history of broadcasting. Above all, Rebels on the Air is the story of the pirate broadcasters who shook up radio in the 1990sand of the new sorts of radio we can expect in the next century, as the microbroadcasters crossbreed with the even newer field of Internet broadcasting.
