Secure and resilient software development.

Author Mark S. Merkow
Place of Publication Boca Raton, FL
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher CRC Press

Although many software books highlight open problems in secure software development, few provide easily actionable, ground-level solutions. Breaking the mold, “Secure and Resilient Software Development” teaches you how to apply best practices and standards for consistent and secure software development. It details specific quality software development strategies and practices that stress resilience requirements with precise, actionable, and ground-level inputs. Providing comprehensive coverage, the book illustrates all phases of the secure software development life cycle. It shows developers how to master non-functional requirements including reliability, security, and resilience. The authors provide expert-level guidance through all phases of the process and supply many best practices, principles, testing practices, and design methodologies

Digital Integrated Circuits: Analysis and Design, 2E

Author John Ayers
Place of Publication Boca Raton, FL
Date of Publication c2009
Publisher CRC Press

Any textbook more than five years old simply won’t do in digital integrated circuits, as dynamic CMOS circuits have emerged to dominate the field. Providing a revised instructional text for engineers involved with Very Large Scale Integrated Circuit design and fabrication, this second edition delves into the dramatic advances, including new applications and changes in the physics of operation made possible by relentless miniaturization. Each chapter includes numerous worked examples, case studies and SPICE computer simulations.
