Research and Markets in Dublin, Ireland, is compiling a book called the Department of Defense (DOD) Information Security Report: The New Model for Protecting Networks Against Terrorist Threats.

The book will be grouped by topic and written in language accessible to a general technical reader, company officials say, adding that the report will cover methods proven and tested over five years, with introductions to related groups of projects provided by the program managers who oversaw the research for that topic area.

An introductory section, written by various program managers for the DOD, which explains why traditional security techniques are not adequate to meet terrorist threats and which new methods will meet particular corporate and industry network needs.

Several examples of the technical methods will be in the book. First, the report will cover techniques and advantages from building in smart security at every level of a network, starting at the individual components level of a computer and extending to the highest levels of network control.

The report also will cover new approaches to creating and using mobile (e.g., Java) code so that valid code is harder to break, and bogus code is easier to detect and block. Software that automatically applies security technologies when it recognizes suspicious activities, as opposed to people having to trigger the deployment of those same security technologies.
