Computer Parables: Enlightenment in the Information Age [Geoffrey James] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.4/5(5).   Book Description Computer systems are coming of age. As computer systems become more prevalent, sophisticated, embedded in physical processes, and interconnected, society becomes more vulnerable to poor system design, accidents that disable systems, and attacks on computer .

The book explores the diversity of the field, the need to engineer countermeasures based on speculation of what experts think computer attackers may do next, why the technology community has failed to respond to the need for enhanced security systems, how innovators could be encouraged to bring more options to the marketplace, and balancing the importance of security against the right of privacy.   Unit 1 The Information Age | Creating a e-Book. The CPU is the brains of the computer. Sometimes referred to simply as the central processor, but more commonly called processor, the CPU is where most calculations take place.

The Department of Defense's Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria, or Orange Book, contains criteria for building systems that provide specific sets of security features and assurances (U.S. DOD, d; see Box A.1).However, the Orange Book does not provide a complete basis for security: Its origin in the defense arena is associated with an emphasis on disclosure control that seems. This accessible introduction to computing is appropriate to both science and liberal arts students, as it includes many examples of computer applications to issues of social and environmental concern. This edition addresses the latest hardware, software and networking products. Organized around four of the most central themes in contemporary computing practice, this introductory text relates computers, systems and their capabilities to students' lives. It charts the history of computing and looks ahead to computers at use in the 21st century. computing science in hardware, software, and networking, covering pre-historic (prior to ) computing devices and computing pioneers since the Abacus. It also discusses the development of computer crimes and the current social and ethical environment. Further, computer ethics is defined, and a need to study computer ethics is emphasized.
