Suitable as a supplement or primary text, FAME integrates corporate finance with spreadsheet analysis using Excel. It is ideal for courses in financial management, financial models, capital budgeting, or case courses. This edition is updated for Excel 2000 as well as new topics in finance.
The continued growth of both wired and wireless communications has triggered the revolution for the generation of new cryptographic algorithms. SHA-2 hash family is a new standard in the widely used hash functions category.
The Check Point Next Generation suite of products provides the tools necessary
for easy development and deployment of enterprise security solutions. Check
Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 has been beating out its competitors for years, and the
Next Generation software continues to improve the look, feel, and ease of use of
this software. Most notably, there is a new security dashboard that gives security
administrators a more detailed view of the Security Policy and management
objects in one window.The user interface is easy to comprehend and provides
optimal functionality all in one place....
Ebook "Network security technologies" presents key security technologies from diverse fields, using a hierarchical framework that enables understanding of security components, how they relate to one another, and how they interwork. This text is unique in that it classifies technologies as basic, enhanced, integrated, and architectural as a means of associating their functional complexities, providing added insight into their interrelationships. It introduces and details security components and their relationships to each other.
To illustrate what can go wrong if we do not
design for security in our web applications from
the start, consider a simple web server
implemented in Java.
All this program does is serve documents using
We will walkthrough the code in the following. (HyperText Transfer Protocol): The
communications protocol used to connect to
servers on the Web.
• Its primary function is to establish a connection
with a Web server and transmit HTML pages to
the client browser or any other files required by an

Managing Cisco Network Security, offers updated and revised information covering many of Cisco's security products that provide protection from threats, detection of network security incidents, measurement of vulnerability and policy compliance and management of security policy across an extended organization. These are the tools that network administrators have to mount defenses against threats.
The OpenSSL library is seeing widespread adoption for web sites that require cryptographic functions to protect a broad range of sensitive information, such as credit card numbers and other financial transactions. The library is the only free, full-featured SSL implementation for C and C++, and it can be used programmatically or from the command line to secure most TCP-based network protocols.
Governance research in accounting exploits the role of
accounting information as a source of credible information
variables that support the existence of enforceable contracts,
such as compensation contracts with payoffs to managers
contingent on realized measures of performance, the
monitoring of managers by boards of directors and outside
investors and regulators, and the exercise of investor rights
granted by existing securities laws. The remainder of Section 3
is organized as follows. Section 3.
An effective network security plan is developed
with the understanding of security issues, potential
attackers, needed level of security, and factors that
make a network vulnerable to attack . The steps
involved in understanding the composition of a
secure network, internet or otherwise, is followed
throughout this research endeavor.
To lessen the vulnerability of the computer to the
network there are many products available.
At the end of this module, you will be able to:
Describe the information investigation process.
Determine functional data requirements from use cases.
Identify nonfunctional requirements that will affect a solutions design.
This book got its start as an experiment in modern technology. When I started teaching
at my present university (1998), the organization and architecture course focused on the 8088
running MS-DOS—essentially a programming environment as old as the sophomores taking
the class. (This temporal freezing is unfortunately fairly common; when I took the same class
during my undergraduate days, the computer whose architecture I studied was only two years
younger than I was.
The first risk factor is the traditional CAPM beta. The second factor is the difference in
returns between high market-to-book companies and firms with low ratios of market
value to book value. The third variable measures the difference in returns of small firms
(S) minus big firms (B). The data series used were compiled by Fama and French. The
Fama-French three factor model has been successfully applied not only in the United
States but in Europe as well. The ability of the model to explain the cross-section of
European stock returns has been documented by...
The OSI Reference Model is useful because it gives some commonly used terminology,
though it might mislead you into thinking that there is only one way to construct a network. The
reference model was designed by an organization known as the International Standards Organiza-
tion (ISO). The ISO decided it would be a good idea to standardize computer networking. Since
that was too big a task for a single committee, they decided to subdivide the problem among several
committees. They somewhat arbitrarily chose seven, each responsible for one layer.
Secure communication is an increasingly important application of the Internet.
Without secure communication many existing social functions cannot beneﬁt from
modern technology. The primary example is commerce. The foundation of secure
communication is cryptography, which enables secure communication through the
use of keys. The management of these keys has proven to be a problem when the
technology is taken into use.
These days, as Internet dangers and risks increase exponentially, administrators of corporate
networks are obliged to pay special attention to user workstation protection. Corporate servers
can be very well protected, yet their client workstations may have backdoors for outside
intrusions, which can be used to steal internal data or introduce confusion.
To reduce the amount of network traffic and to control Internet usage by staff, administrators are
filtering web site content and blocking net advertisements.
SQL injection vulnerabilities have been described as one of the
most serious threats for Web applications [3, 11]. Web applica-
tions that are vulnerable to SQL injection may allow an attacker to
gain complete access to their underlying databases. Because these
databases often contain sensitive consumer or user information, the
resulting security violations can include identity theft, loss of con-
ﬁdential information, and fraud. In some cases, attackers can even
use an SQL injection vulnerability to take control of and corrupt the
system that hosts the Web application.
When organizations exchange information to help facilitate business processes, the importance of privacy is fairly well established and has
become customary. An organization wants its information kept conﬁdential to prevent damage that may occur if the information is obtained
by competitors or other parties that could use the information to negatively impact the competitive position or the well-being of the
information-providing company. The provider of the information has a public image to protect and the misuse of conﬁdential information
could result in bad publicity.
Operating systems and software are written to be functional and easy to use and install. Otherwise vendors will have a hard time selling them ;-)
Unfortunately they generally come configured insecure (or less secure that possible) out of the box.
There are two important terms we need to understand in regards to securing systems out of the box.
This chapter describes the functions and operations of intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It explains the underlying IDS and IPS technology embedded in the Cisco IOS IPS solutions. It describe the use of signatures, the need for IPS alarm monitoring, and the design considerations in deploying IPS.
