This volume presents a review of current perspectives in information systems security in view of the information society of the 21st century. Information security requirements are thoroughly examined from research, industrial and practical viewpoints. Some of the major topics discussed include: information and communication systems security; management of information security; network and distributed systems security; applications of cryptography; legal, ethical and social issues of information security; formal models for information security; standardization, certification and accrediatation issues; privacy issues in the information society; and intrusion detection systems. The book contains the selected proceedings of the 12th International Information Security Conference, arranged by the International Federational for Information Processing and held in Samos, Greece, in May 1996. It should be useful reading for information technology security specialists, computer professionals, EDP managers, EDP auditors, managers, researchers and students working on the subject.
