A Beginner's Guide to Internet of Things Security Attacks, Applications, Authentication, and Fundamentals

A Beginner's Guide to Internet of Things Security Attacks, Applications, Authentication, and Fundamentals

Author: B. B. Gupta, Aakanksha Tewari Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/02/2020

A Beginner's Guide to Internet of Things Security focuses on security issues and developments in the IoT environment. The wide-ranging applications of IoT, including home appliances, transportation, logistics, healthcare and smart cities, necessitate security applications that can be applied to every domain with minimal cost. IoT contains three layers: application layer, middleware layer and perception layer. The security problems of each layer are analyzed separately to identify solutions, along with the integration and scalability issues with the cross-layer architecture of IoT. The book discusses state-of-the-art authentication-based security schemes which can secure RFID tags, along with some security models that are used to verify whether an authentication scheme is secure against any potential security risks. It also looks at existing authentication schemes and security models with their strengths and weaknesses. The book uses statistical and analytical data and explains its impact on the IoT field, as well as an extensive literature survey focusing on trust and privacy problems. The open challenges and future research direction discussed in this book will help to further the academic researchers and industry professionals in the domain of security.

Rhetorical Code Studies Discovering Arguments in and around Code

Rhetorical Code Studies Discovering Arguments in and around Code

Author: Kevin Brock Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/12/2019

Software developers work rhetorically to make meaning through the code they write. In some ways, writing code is like any other form of communication; in others, it proves to be new, exciting, and unique. In Rhetorical Code Studies, Kevin Brock explores how software code serves as meaningful communication through which software developers construct arguments that are made up of logical procedures and express both implicit and explicit claims as to how a given program operates. Building on current scholarly work in digital rhetoric, software studies, and technical communication, Brock connects and continues ongoing conversations among rhetoricians, technical communicators, software studies scholars, and programming practitioners to demonstrate how software code and its surrounding discourse are highly rhetorical forms of communication. He considers examples ranging from large, well-known projects like Mozilla Firefox to small-scale programs like the FizzBuzz test common in many programming job interviews. Undertaking specific examinations of code texts as well as the contexts surrounding their composition, Brock illuminates the variety and depth of rhetorical activity taking place in and around code, from individual differences in style to changes in large-scale organizational and community norms. Rhetorical Code Studies holds significant implications for digital communication, multimodal composition, and the cultural analysis of software and its creation. It will interest academics and students of writing, rhetoric, and software engineering as well as technical communicators and developers of all types of software.
