Wenn man online ist, sein Smartphone einschaltet oder mit der Kreditkarte bezahlt: Auf Schritt und Tritt, gewollt und ungewollt, hinterlässt man automatisch seinen digitalen Fingerabdruck. Das ist inzwischen zumindest bekannt. – nicht zuletzt durch die Enthüllungen von Edward Snowden. Weniger bekannt und bewusst ist, in welchem nahezu unglaublichen Umfang diese Daten und Informationen global gespeichert, ausgewertet und von Regierungen und Unternehmen gesammelt oder ge- bzw. verkauft werden. Je mehr Daten, desto mehr Macht – so definiert sich heute Weltherrschaft! Der international bekannteste Sicherheitsexperte Bruce Schneier enthüllt das volle Ausmaß dieser Datenschiebereien. Er reklamiert fehlende Kontrollmechanismen und prangert den globalen Missbrauch der Daten für für Zensur- und Propagandazwecke, und die zunehmende Cyberkriminalität Tür und Tor geöffnet wird. Jedes Online-Konto, Smartphone, aber auch Auto ist ein Daten-Lieferanten und wir die möglichen Opfer. Diese Gefahr sollte man nicht auf die leichte Schulter nehmen. Bruce Schneier zeigt, was man dagegen tun kann und sollte – und warum man sein Smartphone durchaus fürchten sollte.

This is the first self-contained text to consider security and non-cooperative behavior in wireless networks. Major networking trends are analyzed and their implications explained in terms of security and cooperation, and potential malicious and selfish misdeeds are described along with the existing and future security techniques. Fundamental questions of security including user and device identification; establishment of security association; secure and cooperative routing in multi-hop networks; fair bandwidth distribution; and privacy protection are approached from a theoretical perspective and supported by real-world examples including ad hoc, mesh, vehicular, sensor, and RFID networks. Important relationships between trust, security, and cooperation are also discussed. Contains homework problems and tutorials on cryptography and game theory. This text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of electrical engineering and computer science, and researchers and practitioners in the wireless industry.

Is the Internet the key to a reinvigorated public life? Or will it fragment society by enabling citizens to associate only with like-minded others? Online community has provided social researchers with insights into our evolving social life. As suburbanization and the breakdown of the extended family and neighborhood isolate individuals more and more, the Internet appears as a possible source for reconnection. Are virtual communities "real" enough to support the kind of personal commitment and growth we associate with community life, or are they fragile and ultimately unsatisfying substitutes for human interaction? Community in the Digital Age features the latest, most challenging work in an important and fast-changing field, providing a forum for some of the leading North American social scientists and philosophers concerned with the social and political implications of this new technology. Their provocative arguments touch on all sides of the debate surrounding the Internet, community, and democracy.

Das Internet ist eine der bedeutendsten technologischen Errungenschaften der Geschichte. Es erlaubt Menschen in aller Welt Zugang zu umfassenden Informationen, unterstützt die weltweite Kommunikation und Vernetzung und fungiert als globaler Marktplatz. Dabei bieten die vielfältigen Angebote im Internet jedoch nicht nur Chancen; sie werfen auch Fragen des Datenschutzes, der Persönlichkeitsentfaltung und der Privatsphäre auf. Dieses Phänomen wird gemeinhin als das Privatheitsparadoxon bezeichnet. Aufgrund der großen Bedeutung von Privatheit im Internet hat acatech 2011 ein Projekt initiiert, das sich mit dem Privatheitsparadoxon wissenschaftlich auseinandersetzt. Dieser Band ist der erste Teil einer acatech STUDIE zum Projekt „Internet Privacy – Eine Kultur der Privatsphäre und des Vertrauens im Internet“. Die Autoren leisten eine Bestandsaufnahme der existierenden individuellen und gesellschaftlichen Vorstellungen von Privatsphäre im Internet sowie der entsprechenden rechtlichen, technischen, ökonomischen und ethischen Rahmenbedingungen.

Principles and Practices of Interconnection Networks

One of the greatest challenges faced by designers of digital systems is optimizing the communication and interconnection between system components. Interconnection networks offer an attractive and economical solution to this communication crisis and are fast becoming pervasive in digital systems. Current trends suggest that this communication bottleneck will be even more problematic when designing future generations of machines. Consequently, the anatomy of an interconnection network router and science of interconnection network design will only grow in importance in the coming years. This book offers a detailed and comprehensive presentation of the basic principles of interconnection network design, clearly illustrating them with numerous examples, chapter exercises, and case studies. It incorporates hardware-level descriptions of concepts, allowing a designer to see all the steps of the process from abstract design to concrete implementation. Case studies throughout the book draw on extensive author experience in designing interconnection networks over a period of more than twenty years, providing real world examples of what works, and what doesn't. Tightly couples concepts with implementation costs to facilitate a deeper understanding of the tradeoffs in the design of a practical network. A set of examples and exercises in every chapter help the reader to fully understand all the implications of every design decision.
