From video games to mobile augmented reality, 3D interaction is everywhere. But simply choosing to use 3D input or 3D displays isn´t enough: 3D user interfaces (3D UIs) must be carefully designed for optimal user experience. 3D User Interfaces: Theory and Practice, Second Edition is today´s most comprehensive primary reference to building outstanding 3D UIs. Four pioneers in 3D user interface research and practice have extensively expanded and updated this book, making it today´s definitive source for all things related to state-of-the-art 3D interaction. This edition goes far beyond VR, covering the full spectrum of emerging applications for 3D UIs, and presenting an extraordinary array of pioneering techniques and technologies. The authors combine theoretical foundations, analysis of devices and techniques, empirically validated design guidelines, and much more. Throughout each chapter, they illustrate key concepts with running case studies on gaming, mobile AR, and robot teleoperation.
Profitieren Sie von den Erfahrungen der Autoren! Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das aktuelle und zuverlässige Praxiswissen zum IT-Sicherheitsmanagement in Unternehmen und Behörden - Aufbau und Inhalt des Werkes haben sich in der Aus- und Fortbildung von IT-Sicherheitsbeauftragten bewährt. Die Inventarisierung aller Informationswerte (Assets), die Formulierung von Sicherheitszielen und die Erstellung von Leitlinien und Sicherheitskonzepten werden klar und verständlich dargestellt. Anhand vieler praktischer Beispiele erfahren Sie alles über Risikoanalysen und -bewertungen sowie über wichtige Sicherheitsmaßnahmen aus den Bereichen Organisation, Recht, Personal, Infrastruktur und Technik. In der vierten Auflage wurde neben vielen Aktualisierungen und Erweiterungen (z.B. im Hinblick auf den Einsatz mobiler IT-Systeme) das Kapitel über die Inventarisierung komplett überarbeitet; als neues Kapitel wurde die Verhinderung von Datenlecks (Data Loss / Leakage Prevention) in sensiblen Organisationen aufgenommen.
IoT Security Issues looks at the burgeoning growth of devices of all kinds controlled over the Internet of all varieties, where product comes first and security second. In this case, security trails badly. This book examines the issues surrounding these problems, vulnerabilities, what can be done to solve the problem, investigating the stack for the roots of the problems and how programming and attention to good security practice can combat the problems today that are a result of lax security processes on the Internet of Things. This book is for people interested in understanding the vulnerabilities on the Internet of Things, such as programmers who have not yet been focusing on the IoT, security professionals and a wide array of interested hackers and makers. This book assumes little experience or knowledge of the Internet of Things. To fully appreciate the book, limited programming background would be helpful for some of the chapters later in the book, though the basic content is explained. The author, Alasdair Gilchrist, has spent 25 years as a company director in the fields of IT, Data Communications, Mobile Telecoms and latterly Cloud/SDN/NFV technologies, as a professional technician, support manager, network and security architect. He has project-managed both agile SDLC software development as well as technical network architecture design. He has experience in the deployment and integration of systems in enterprise, cloud, fixed/mobile telecoms, and service provider networks. He is therefore knowledgeable in a wide range of technologies and has written a number of books in related fields.
Advances in artificial intelligence, sensor computing, robotics, and mobile systems are making autonomous systems a reality. At the same time, the influence of edge computing is leading to more distributed architectures incorporating more autonomous elements. The flow of information is critical in such environments, but the real time, distributed nature of the system components complicates the data protection mechanisms. Policy-based management has proven useful in simplifying the complexity of management in domains like networking, security, and storage; it is expected that many of those benefits would carry over to the task of managing big data and autonomous systems. This book aims at providing an overview of recent work and identifying challenges related to the design of policy-based approaches for managing big data and autonomous systems. An important new direction explored in the book is to make the major elements of the system self-describing and self-managing. This would lead to architectures where policy mechanisms are tightly coupled with the system elements. In such integrated architectures, we need new models for information assurance, traceability of information, and better provenance on information flows. In addition when dealing with devices with actuation capabilities and, thus, being able to make changes to physical spaces, safety is critical. With an emphasis on policy-based mechanisms for governance of data security and privacy, and for safety assurance, the papers in this volume follow three broad themes: foundational principles and use-cases for the autonomous generation of policies; safe autonomy; policies and autonomy in federated environments.
Power analysis attacks allow the extraction of secret information from smart cards. Smart cards are used in many applications including banking, mobile communications, pay TV, and electronic signatures. In all these applications, the security of the smart cards is of crucial importance. Power Analysis Attacks: Revealing the Secrets of Smart Cards is the first comprehensive treatment of power analysis attacks and countermeasures. Based on the principle that the only way to defend against power analysis attacks is to understand them, this book explains how power analysis attacks work. Using many examples, it discusses simple and differential power analysis as well as advanced techniques like template attacks. Furthermore, the authors provide an extensive discussion of countermeasures like shuffling, masking, and DPA-resistant logic styles. By analyzing the pros and cons of the different countermeasures, this volume allows practitioners to decide how to protect smart cards. Smart cards are used as ATM cards, credit cards, SIM cards, signature cards, pay TV cards and citizen cards. The security of these cards is of crucial importance. Power Analysis Attacks and Countermeasures for Cryptographic Smart Cards provides a unified overview andcomparison of power analysis attacks and countermeasures to protect this technology. The pros and cons of different countermeasures are analyzed in order to help decide how to protect our card devices against power analysis attacks.Power Analysis Attacks and Countermeasures for Cryptographic Smart Cards is designed for researchers and graduate-level students in computer science. This book is also suitable for practitioners in industry.
