Security in Fixed and Wireless Networks: An Introduction to Securing Data Communications (0470863706) cover image
With our modern society' s increased dependence on information technology and communication networks, the subject of network security is developing into a crucial base technology and most people working in the networking and information technology business will need to know the basics of fixed and wireless network security.  This book gives a firm introduction into the field covering the fundamentals of data security technology and explaining in-depth how they are applied in communication networks.

Approaches network security from the wireless as well as the computer networking side.

  • Concentrates on the core networking issues (first 4 layers up to the transport layer).
  • Helps the reader to understand the risks of a lack of security in a network & how to prevent it.
  • Brings security in networks up to date by covering wireless and mobile security issues.
  • Includes security issues around hot topics such as wireless LANs (e.g. 802.11), AAA (Authentication, authorization, and accounting), and Mobile IP.
  • Illustrates complicated security concepts with exercises and features an extensive glossary.

An essential reference tool for graduate students of computer science, electrical engineering and telecommunications who need to learn the basics of network security. Also, professionals working in data- & telecommunications will also benefit from the book as it gives a self-contained introduction to the basics of network security: network managers, engineers, IT managers.

Dr.-Ing. Günter Schäfer studied computer science at the Universität Karlsruhe Germany. from 1989 to 1994. After his studies he continued there as a member of the scientific staff at the Institute of Telematics. He received his doctorate on the topic Efficient Authentication and Key Management in High-Performance Networks in October 1998. In February 1999 Dr. Schäfer took a postdoctoral position at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications in Paris, France, where he focused on network security and access network performance of third-generation mobile communication networks.
Since August 2000, Dr. Schäfer has been at the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, where he is involved in research and lectures on the subject of telecommunications networks. His main subject areas are network security, mobile communications, and active network technologies.
Günter Schäfer is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Gesellschaft für Informatik (German Computer Science Society).
