Intruders and ID Tags
report examines the current state of security technologies, organizes
key issues and puts them in context, and succinctly explains how
the technologies work.
Security researchers are aiming to protect computer data, hardware,
and software from intruders. They are finding methods of tracking
data, objects, and people. And they are exploring ways to protect
privacy on the Internet and in the real world.
The technologies involved include cryptography, data hiding methods,
data finding methods, information privacy, hardware security, system
recovery, Internet security, property protection, intelligent tracking,
Security methods run the gamut from finding twists on encryption
schemes, to gleaning secret information from patterns, to constructing
cheap plastic tags that can be used to identify objects, to making
microscopic glowing beads that can be used to hide information in
The report includes an executive summary, a list of 23 developments
to look for as these cutting-edge technologies take shape, and a
section of 31 researchers to watch, including links to their Web
pages. It also includes a quick tour of 41 recent developments in
seven areas and a section of 33 in-depth news stories from TRN.
The stories are organized into seven categories: cryptography, quantum
cryptography, data hiding, systems and software defenses, Internet
vulnerabilities, privacy protection, and physical security.
Making the Future reports contain live links, and can
be read on a computer, printed and archived.
