To many who knew him, there was nothing odd about him. He was a normal kid…
On February 7, 2000, Yahoo.com was the first victim of the biggest distributed denial-of-service attack ever to hit the Internet. On May 8th, Buy.com was battling a massive denial-of-service attack. Later that afternoon, eBay.com also reported significant outages of service, as did Amazon.com. Then CNN's global online news operation started to grind to a crawl. By the following day, Datek and E-Trade entered crisis mode…all thanks to an ordinary fourteen-year-old kid.

Over the last several years, the Committee has listened with increasing alarm to the testimony of senior intelligence officials and private sector experts about the growing cybersecurity threats to our nation. The Committee has already seen the impact these threats are having on the nation's security and its economy as losses to consumers, businesses, and the government from cyber attacks, penetrations, and disruptions already total billions of dollars. Beyond direct monetary losses, the continuing efforts of foreign actors to steal intellectual property will have far reaching impacts on the innovation upon which a robust economy and strong military relies. The Committee has seen widespread theft through cyberspace increasingly evolve into disruptive and destructive attacks. Our nation is growing more vulnerable to cyber threats. Every aspect of society is growing more dependent on computers which are all linked to networks, opening this country up to many known vulnerabilities and many yet to be discovered.

The Knowledge Grid is an intelligent and sustainable interconnection environment that consists of autonomous individuals, self-organized semantic communities, adaptive networking mechanisms, evolving semantic link networks keeping meaningful connection between individuals, flows for dynamic resource sharing, and mechanisms supporting effective resource management and providing appropriate knowledge services for learning, innovation, teamwork, problem solving, and decision making. This book presents its methodology, theory, models and applications systematically for the first time. Its second edition fulfills the ideal of the Knowledge Grid by increasing many up-to-date new contents, including: the systematic method of semantic link network that supports uncertainty management, discovery of semantic links and semantic communities, and autonomous semantic data model; semantic peer-to-peer infrastructures for efficient knowledge sharing; and, a new centrality measure of network and its application in e-science. This new edition will undoubtedly provide refreshing materials for researchers, academics, practitioners and students.
DDoS attack is the greatest threat of today in the field of Network Security. The ability to detect and prevent a network from DDoS attack and to ensure the high quality infrastructure is a back bone of today?s network security issues. In this book, it has successfully validated an algorithm using OmNet++ Ver. 4.0 simulation to show how a DDoS attack can be detected and how the nodes can be protected from such an attack using GOSSIP protocol.

Distributed Networked Operations describes a refinement of what popularly has been called "network centric operations."Distributed networked operations envision combat conducted by large numbers of diverse, small units-rather than by small numbers of generally homogenous, large units. In theory and to a significant extent in practice in Afghanistan and Iraq, distributed networked operations involve a mixed bag of naval, ground and air units, none of which is individually as powerful as a fleet, air wing or armored division.Author Jeff Cares discusses distributed networked operations from the perspective of adaptive control theory and details implications for force structure, hardware employment, and networked competition. Jeff presents a formal model of Information Age combat and explores the civilian business applications of the theory.
