Secure Smart Embedded Devices, Platforms and Applications, Hardback Book

Secure Smart Embedded Devices, Platforms and Applications Hardback

Edited by Konstantinos Markantonakis, Dr. Keith (University of London) Mayes


New generations of IT users are increasingly abstracted from the underlying devices and platforms that provide and safeguard their services.

As a result they may have little awareness that they are critically dependent on the embedded security devices that are becoming pervasive in daily modern life.

Secure Smart Embedded Devices, Platforms and Applications provides a broad overview of the many security and practical issues of embedded devices, tokens, and their operation systems, platforms and main applications.

It also addresses a diverse range of industry/government initiatives and considerations, while focusing strongly on technical and practical security issues.

The benefits and pitfalls of developing and deploying applications that rely on embedded systems and their security functionality are presented.

A sufficient level of technical detail to support embedded systems is provided throughout the text, although the book is quite readable for those seeking awareness through an initial overview of the topics.

This edited volume benefits from the contributions of industry and academic experts and helps provide a cross-discipline overview of the security and practical issues for embedded systems, tokens, and platforms.

It is an ideal complement to the earlier work, Smart Cards Tokens, Security and Applications from the same editors.
