System Assurance Beyond Detecting Vulnerabilities provides a comprehensive view of systematic, repeatable, and affordable cyberdefense that goes beyond knowledge of vulnerabilities and includes knowledge of the system, knowledge of risks and threats, knowledge of security safeguards, as well as knowledge of the assurance argument, together with the corresponding evidence answering the question why a system is secure.
The book is organized into four parts. The first part provides an introduction to cybersecurity knowledge; the need for information exchanges for systematic, repeatable, and affordable cyberdefense; and the motivation for the Object Management Group (OMG) Software Assurance Ecosystem. It discusses the nature of system assurance and its difference for vulnerability detection, and introduces the OMG standard on Software Assurance Cases. It describes an end-to-end methodology for system assurance in the context of the OMG Software Assurance Ecosystem that brings together risk analysis, architecture analysis, and code analysis in an integrated process that is guided and planned by the assurance argument. The second part describes various aspects of cybersecurity knowledge required for building cybersecurity arguments. This knowledge includes system knowledge, knowledge related to security threats and risks, and vulnerability knowledge. The third part provides an overview of the protocols of the OMG Software Assurance Ecosystem. It covers the Common Fact Model approach; linguistic models and the OMG Semantics of Business Vocabularies and Rules (SBVR) standard; and the OMG Knowledge Discovery Metamodel (KDM). The fourth part presents a case study to illustrate some of the activities of a system assurance evaluation.

A blog started the forever war–a global war set in the not so distant future between two groups (the Rebels and the Coco's).

Dylan Austin has grown up with the war being a constant background to his life; his dad has just returned from war missing a leg; his older sister is missing and presumed dead from the war; and all through school war has been embedded into everything they teach. Teens have been raised on educational war video games, and their minds are polluted with the idea that war is just a game.

This book is a step-by-step guide on building a Raspberry Pi VPN Server using Open Source software under Windows 7 and Raspbian OS. As a fully plug-n-play device, you will be able to connect it into virtually any Internet router and it will auto-configure itself to that environment. There is no need for DDNS (Dynamic DNS) as the server will send you emails if/when its IP address changes, so you can make quick/easy changes to your local Client Certificates. For less than $60, you'll have your own VPN Server which you can monitor and maintain from almost anywhere without paying service fees or risk having your data recorded.
***NEW*** The rpi-vpn.zip file referenced in my book contains a link to a new supporting web site that includes a User Forum, and additional FAQs, Troubleshooting, Maintenance, and Errata pages not found in the book.
** Updated to Rev 2.0 on May 1, 2015 – Added WiFi setup instructions, Troubleshooting and FAQ Appendices, and corrections.
