This monograph on Security in Computing Systems: Challenges, Approaches and Solutions aims at introducing, surveying and assessing the fundamentals of se- rity with respect to computing. Here, “computing” refers to all activities which individuals or groups directly or indirectly perform by means of computing s- tems, i. e. , by means of computers and networks of them built on telecommuni- tion. We all are such individuals, whether enthusiastic or just bowed to the inevitable. So, as part of the ‘‘information society’’, we are challenged to maintain our values, to pursue our goals and to enforce our interests, by consciously desi- ing a ‘‘global information infrastructure’’ on a large scale as well as by approp- ately configuring our personal computers on a small scale. As a result, we hope to achieve secure computing: Roughly speaking, computer-assisted activities of in- viduals and computer-mediated cooperation between individuals should happen as required by each party involved, and nothing else which might be harmful to any party should occur. The notion of security circumscribes many aspects, ranging from human qua- ties to technical enforcement. First of all, in considering the explicit security requirements of users, administrators and other persons concerned, we hope that usually all persons will follow the stated rules, but we also have to face the pos- bility that some persons might deviate from the wanted behavior, whether ac- dently or maliciously.

The internet is making our daily life as digital as possible and this new era is called the Internet of Everything (IoE). Edge computing is an emerging data analytics concept that addresses the challenges associated with IoE. More specifically, edge computing facilitates data analysis at the edge of the network instead of interacting with cloud-based servers. Therefore, more and more devices need to be added in remote locations without any substantial monitoring strategy. This increased connectivity and the devices used for edge computing will create more room for cyber criminals to exploit the system’s vulnerabilities. Ensuring cyber security at the edge should not be an afterthought or a huge challenge. The devices used for edge computing are not designed with traditional IT hardware protocols. There are diverse-use cases in the context of edge computing and Internet of Things (IoT) in remote locations. However, the cyber security configuration and software updates are often overlooked when they are most needed to fight cyber crime and ensure data privacy. Therefore, the threat landscape in the context of edge computing becomes wider and far more challenging. There is a clear need for collaborative work throughout the entire value chain of the network. In this context, this book addresses the cyber security challenges associated with edge computing, which provides a bigger picture of the concepts, techniques, applications, and open research directions in this area. In addition, the book serves as a single source of reference for acquiring the knowledge on the technology, process and people involved in next generation computing and security. It will be a valuable aid for researchers, higher level students and professionals working in the area.
