New book: ‘Security of Ubiquitous Computing Systems’, co-edited by Professor Julio Hernandez-Castro, is published

Book cover: Security of Ubiquitous Computing Systems

The division of Computing, Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) is pleased to announce the publication of a new book titled Security of Ubiquitous Computing Systems, recently published by Springer and free for all to access and download. The book was co-edited by Professor Julio Hernandez-Castro, a member of Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS) and Professor from the School of Computing, alongside Professor Gildas Avoine from the National Institute of Applied Sciences, in Rennes, France.

Security of Ubiquitous Computing Systems is designed to help engineers and researchers in computer sciences, mathematics, and electrical engineering, who are not necessarily experts in security, to gain a quick grasp of this field of work.

The book has been more than two years in the making and is the final result of an EU COST project called Cryptacus. This was a 4 year project that engaged cryptanalysts all across Europe into a joint effort to improve the security of IoT primitives and protocols.

Professor Hernandez-Castro said “We are delighted at the publication of this new book, in which we have some of the best cryptanalysts in Europe contributing. Its contents are not too complex and are aimed to help MSc and early PhD students get a quick grasp of several areas within the field of IoT security and cryptography.”
