Description : Several prominent public voices have advanced the hypothesis that networked communications erode the value of privacy in favor of a transparent connected existence. Especially younger generations are often described as prone to live "open digital lives". This hypothesis has raised considerable controversy, polarizing the reaction of its critics as well as of its partisans. But how likely is the "end of privacy"? Under which conditions might this scenario come to be? What are the business and policy implications? How to ethically assess risks and opportunities? To shed light on the co-evolution and mutual dependencies of networked structures and individual and collective strategies towards privacy, this book innovatively uses cutting-edge methods in computational social sciences to study the formation and maintenance of online social networks. The findings confound common arguments and clearly indicate that Internet and social media do not necessarily entail the end of privacy. Publicity is not "the new norm": quite to the contrary, the book makes the case that privacy is a resilient social force, resulting from a set of interconnected behaviors of Internet users.
Description : In preparation for this book, and to better understand our screen-based, digital world, Miller only accessed information online for seven years. On the End of Privacy explores how literacy is transformed by online technology that lets us instantly publish anything that we can see or hear. Miller examines the 2010 suicide of Tyler Clementi, a young college student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge after he discovered that his roommate spied on him via webcam. With access to the text messages, tweets, and chatroom posts of those directly involved in this tragedy, Miller asks: why did no one intervene to stop the spying? Searching for an answer to that question leads Miller to online porn sites, the invention of Facebook, the court-martial of Chelsea Manning, the contents of Hillary Clinton’s email server, Anthony Weiner’s sexted images, Chatroulette, and more as he maps out the changing norms governing privacy in the digital age.
Description : Examines practical research and case studies on such benchmark topics as biometric and security technology, protection of digital assets and information, multilevel computer self-efficacy, and end-user Web development. Provides research into the advancement, productivity, and performance of the end user computing domain.
Description : Covers the important concepts, methodologies, technologies, applications, social issues, and emerging trends in this field. Provides researchers, managers, and other professionals with the knowledge and tools they need to properly understand the role of end-user computing in the modern organization.
Description : Circuits and Systems for Security and Privacy begins by introducing the basic theoretical concepts and arithmetic used in algorithms for security and cryptography, and by reviewing the fundamental building blocks of cryptographic systems. It then analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of real-world implementations that not only optimize power, area, and throughput but also resist side-channel attacks. Merging the perspectives of experts from industry and academia, the book provides valuable insight and necessary background for the design of security-aware circuits and systems as well as efficient accelerators used in security applications.
Description : This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Second European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks, ESAS 2005, held in Visegrad, Hungary in July 2005, in conjunction with the First International Conference on Wireless Internet (WICON). The 17 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 51 submissions. The papers address current topics in network security, cryptography, and wireless networking communities and present original research on all aspects of security and privacy in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks.
Description : Contains 46 papers and posters from a December 1998 symposium. Subjects include improving back-propagation with sliding mode control, learnability in sequential RAM-based neural networks, unsupervised neural network learning for blind sources separation, optimizations of the combinatorial neural model, extracting rules from feedforward Boolean neural networks, factor semantics for document retrieval, and artificial neural networks applied to theoretical chemistry.

Description : SecureComm 2009, the 5th International ICST Conference on Security and P- vacyinCommunicationNetworks,washeldinAthens,Greece,September14–17, 2009.SecureCommwasorganizedbytheInstituteforComputerSciences,Social- Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST). The General Chair of the conference was Peng Liu from the Pennsylvania State University, USA. The conference received 76 submissions (one withdrawn) and each subm- sion received at least three reviews, with some papers receiving as many as ?ve reviews. The ?rst phase of the review process (April 7 to May 27) generated 290 reviews overall or about 3.8 reviews per submission. In the second phase (May 28 to June 12), a two-week online discussion was initiated ensuring consensus for each accepted paper. The review process was challenging and we are deeply gratefultothecommitteemembersandtheexternalreviewersfortheiroutsta- ing work. The Program Committee consisted of 64 academics and professionals well known in their corresponding area of expertise. After meticulous deliberation, the Program Committee, which was chaired by Yan Chen from Northwestern University, USA and Tassos Dimitriou from Athens Information Technology,Greece, selected 19 full papers and 7 short ones for presentation in the academic track and inclusion in this volume. This gives the acceptance rates of 25.3% for the full papers and 34.7% for all papers.
