About this book

Networked computers are ubiquitous, and are subject to attack, misuse, and abuse. One method to counteracting this cyber threat is to provide security analysts with better tools to discover patterns, detect anomalies, identify correlations, and communicate their findings. Visualization for computer security (VizSec) researchers and developers are doing just that. VizSec is about putting robust information visualization tools into the hands of human analysts to take advantage of the power of the human perceptual and cognitive processes in solving computer security problems. This volume collects the papers presented at the 4th International Workshop on Computer Security - VizSec 2007.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is a collection of several very useful contributions. The introductory paper by the editors is quite useful as an overview of the field, and could very well be recommended reading for a course. … I recommend this book to anyone who is involved in, or wants to get up to speed with the use of, visualization techniques in computer security." (Stefano Zanero, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2008)
