The rapid advancements in telecommunications, computing hardware and software, and data encryption, and the widespread use of electronic data processing and electronic business conducted through the Internet have led to a strong increase in information security threats. The latest advances in information security have increased practical deployments and scalability across a wide range of applications to better secure and protect our information systems and the information stored, processed and transmitted. This book outlines key emerging trends in information security from the foundations and technologies in biometrics, cybersecurity, and big data security to applications in hardware and embedded systems security, computer forensics, the Internet of Things security, and network security.

Information Security: Foundations, technologies and applications is a comprehensive review of cutting-edge algorithms, technologies, and applications, and provides new insights into a range of fundamentally important topics in the field. This up-to-date body of knowledge is essential reading for researchers and advanced students in information security, and for professionals in sectors where information security is required.

Michael Fairhurst is Professor of Computer Vision in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts at the University of Kent. He leads a research group with broad interests in the fundamental processes of image analysis and pattern recognition, with a particular focus on applications in security and especially biometrics.
