Security issues in distributed systems and network systems are extremely important. This edited book provides a comprehensive treatment on security issues in these systems, ranging from attacks to all kinds of solutions from prevention to detection approaches. The books includes security studies in a range of systems including peer-to-peer networks, distributed systems, Internet, wireless networks, Internet service, e-commerce, mobile and pervasive computing. Security issues in these systems include attacks, malicious node detection, access control, authentication, intrusion detection, privacy and anonymity, security architectures and protocols, security theory and tools, secrecy and integrity, and trust models. This volume provides an excellent reference for students, faculty, researchers and people in the industry related to these fields.
