Rethinking Public Key Infrastructures and Digital Certificates
by Stefan A. Brands
Publisher: The MIT Press 2000
Number of pages: 356
In this book Stefan Brands proposes cryptographic building blocks for the design of digital certificates that preserve privacy without sacrificing security. Such certificates function in much the same way as cinema tickets or subway tokens: anyone can establish their validity and the data they specify, but no more than that.

Forensic information can be found everywhere you look. The authors develop tools to collect information from obvious and not so obvious sources, walk through analyses of real intrusions in detail, and discuss the limitations of their approach.

The text on detection via cryptographic hashing. The authors show how to determine when the tampering occurred, what data was tampered, and who did the tampering. Four successively more sophisticated forensic analysis algorithms are presented.
