Grid Computing Security

Springer Science & Business Media
Free sample

Grid computing is widely regarded as a technology of immense potential in both industry and academia. Yet many enterprises are still hesitant about the implementation of an enterprise-level grid system, due to the lack of consistent and widely used standards. Security is probably the most important concern and needs both close understanding and careful implementation as grid computing offers unique security challenges.

Based on his research and industry experience, Chakrabarti has structured the issues pertaining to grid computing security into three main categories: architecture-related, infrastructure-related, and management-related issues. He discusses all three categories in detail, presents existing solutions, standards, and products, and pinpoints their shortcomings and open questions.

Together with a brief introduction into grid computing in general and underlying security technologies, this book offers the first concise and detailed introduction to this important area, targeting professionals in the grid industry as well as students specializing in grid computing, networking, peer-to-peer systems, or operating systems. It can also be used as the basis for a self-contained course on grid computing security, complementing the author’s tutorials at grid conferences.

How to solve security issues and problems arising in distributed systems.

Security is one of the leading concerns in developing dependable distributed systems of today, since the integration of different components in a distributed manner creates new security problems and issues. Service oriented architectures, the Web, grid computing and virtualization – form the backbone of today’s distributed systems. A lens to security issues in distributed systems is best provided via deeper exploration of security concerns and solutions in these technologies. 

Distributed Systems Security provides a holistic insight into current security issues, processes, and solutions, and maps out future directions in the context of today’s distributed systems.  This insight is elucidated by modeling of modern day distributed systems using a four-tier logical model –host layer, infrastructure layer, application layer, and service layer (bottom to top). The authors provide an in-depth coverage of security threats and issues across these tiers. Additionally the authors describe the approaches required for efficient security engineering, alongside exploring how existing solutions can be leveraged or enhanced to proactively meet the dynamic needs of security for the next-generation distributed systems. The practical issues thereof are reinforced via practical case studies.

Distributed Systems Security:

Presents an overview of distributed systems security issues, including threats, trends, standards and solutions. Discusses threats and vulnerabilities in different layers namely the host, infrastructure, application, and service layer to provide a holistic and practical, contemporary view of enterprise architectures. Provides practical insights into developing current-day distributed systems security using realistic case studies.

This book will be of invaluable interest to software engineers, developers, network professionals and technical/enterprise architects working in the field of distributed systems security. Managers and CIOs, researchers and advanced students will also find this book insightful.

Prepare with the only official study guide for the CWNA-106

The CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide: Exam CWNA-106 is the officially endorsed CWNA test prep for the leading wireless certification. Expert authors and CWNEs David D. Coleman and David A. Westcott guide readers through the skills and concepts candidates need to know for the exam, using hands-on methods to convey an in-depth understanding of wireless network administration. Readers should have a basic knowledge of Radio Frequency behavior, experience with WLAN hardware peripherals and protocols, and an interest in designing, installing, and managing wireless networks.

Wireless technology is taking over the tech industry, and the demand for competent, certified professionals is far outpacing the supply. A CWNA certification denotes advanced-level proficiency in the field, with a complete understanding of wireless LAN components, features, and function—but the only way to pass the exam is to truly understand the material, not just the talking points. The CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide thoroughly covers each exam objective, and includes review questions, assessment tests, and exercises to test your skills. Topics include:

Radio Frequency technologies, regulations, and standards 802.11 protocols Network implementation and security 802.11 RF site surveying

Readers also get access to a suite of study tools including an electronic test engine with hundreds or practice test questions, electronic flashcards, exercise peripherals, and industry White Papers, which serve as valuable backup references. In preparing for the CWNA-106 exam, the ideal study guide should cover all of the exam topics in depth—CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide does just that, making it an excellent, comprehensive study guide.
