How does software break? How do attackers make software break on purpose? Why are
firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and antivirus software not keeping out the bad guys?
What tools can be used to break software? This book provides the answers.
Exploiting Software is loaded with examples of real attacks, attack patterns, tools, and
techniques used by bad guys to break software. If you want to protect your software from
attack, you must first learn how real attacks are really carried out.
This must-have book may shock you—and it will certainly educate you.Getting beyond the
script kiddie treatment found in many hacking books, you will learn about

Industrial Gas Flaring Practices
This volume tackles for the first time in decades the world's gas flaring practices, a difficult, hot-button issue of our time, whose consequences are only just beginning to be understood. The book examines both the technical and environmental aspects of gas flaring, highlights different flare designs, and presents real-world case studies...
Practical Formal Software Engineering: Wanting the Software You Get Practical Formal Software Engineering is a textbook aimed at final year undergraduate and graduate students, emphasizing formal methods in writing robust code quickly. Engineering is an informal process using formal logics as tools and components to obtain timely practical solutions. This book takes an engineering approach to illuminate the...
Network Routing: Algorithms, Protocols, and Architectures In the span of a quarter-century, network routing in communication networks has evolved tremendously. Just a quarter-century ago, the public switched telephone network (PSTN) was running hierarchical routing, ARPANET routing was operational, and the telecommunication infrastructure had fixed static transport routes. In the 1980s, we saw the first... Selected Areas in Cryptography: 10th Annual International Workshop, SAC 2003 SAC 2003 was the tenth in a series of annual workshops on Selected Areas in Cryptography. This marked the third time that the workshop had been held at Carleton University in Ottawa with previous workshops being held there in 1995 and 1997. The intent of the SAC workshops is to provide a relaxed atmosphere in which researchers in cryptography can...
