This book describes modern technical tools that realize intentional remote destructives impacts to DPRs. It also discusses traditional passive means of protection, such as screened cabinets, filters, cables, special materials, covers, and advanced tools based on circuit- and hardware-based methods. It is the first book on the market to provide a detailed overview of the vulnerabilities of digital protection relays (DPRs) to natural and intentional destructive impacts, including cyber attacks and electromagnetism.
Book Information The fourth book in the bestselling Artech House EW 100 series is dedicated to reviewing legacy threats and discussing new threats which have arisen since Y2K in communications, radar, and IR threats. Like its predecessors, EW 104 presents a series of highly informative and easy-to-comprehend tutorials, along with insightful introductory and connective material that helps you understand how each aspect fits together. This reference starts with a review of the generalities of legacy threats, from the technical point of view, with a focus on what makes the new threats more challenging. Readers are provided with details of threats in three major areas – Communications, Radars, and IR Threats. Market Engineers and managers responsible for designing or evaluating communications electronic warfare systems, government defense system procurement managers, and defense contractors.
In the post-9/11 world, the possibility of energy infrastructure-terrorism_the use of weapons to cause devastating damage to the energy industrial sector along with its cascading effects_is very real. Energy Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security is a reference for those involved with our energy infrastructure who want quick answers to complicated questions. It is intended to help employers and employees handle security threats they must be prepared to meet on a daily basis. This book focuses on the three interrelated energy infrastructure segments: electricity, petroleum, and natural gas. It presents common-sense methodologies in a straightforward manner and is accessible to those who have no experience with energy infrastructure or homeland security. Readers gain an understanding of the challenge of domestic preparedness_that is, an immediate need for a heightened state of awareness of the present threat facing the energy infrastructure industrial sector as a potential terrorist target_as well as knowledge of security principles and measures that can be implemented, adding a critical component not only to one's professional knowledge but also giving one the tools needed to combat terrorism.
The Internet, as well as other telecommunication networks and information systems, have become an integrated part of our daily lives, and our dependency upon their underlying infrastructure is ever-increasing. Unfortunately, as our dependency has grown, so have hostile attacks on the cyber infrastructure by network predators. The lack of security as a core element in the initial design of these information systems has made common desktop software, infrastructure services, and information networks increasingly vulnerable to continuous and innovative breakers of security. Worms, viruses, and spam are examples of attacks that cost the global economy billions of dollars in lost productivity. Sophisticated distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that use thousands of web robots (bots) on the Internet and telecommunications networks are on the rise. The ramifications of these attacks are clear: the potential for a devastating largescale network failure, service interruption, or the total unavailability of service. Yet many security programs are based solely on reactive measures, such as the patching of software or the detection of attacks that have already occurred, instead of proactive measures that prevent attacks in the first place. Most of the network security configurations are performed manually and require experts to monitor, tune security devices, and recover from attacks. On the other hand, attacks are getting more sophisticated and highly automated, which gives the attackers an advantage in this technology race. A key contribution of this book is that it provides an integrated view and a comprehensive framework of the various issues relating to cyber infrastructure protection. It covers not only strategy and policy issues, but it also covers social, legal, and technical aspects of cyber security as well. We strongly recommend this book for policymakers and researchers so that they may stay abreast of the latest research and develop a greater understanding of cyber security issues.

The third book in the bestselling "Artech House EW 100" series is dedicated entirely to the practical aspects of electronic warfare against enemy communication. Like its predecessors, EW 103 presents a series of highly informative and easy-to-comprehend tutorials, along with insightful introductory and connective material that helps practitioners understand how each aspect fits together. From communications math, receiving systems, and signals, to communications emitter location, intercept, and jamming, this comprehensive volume covers all the key topics in the field.This title includes CD-ROM and Slide Rule! The CD-ROM contains time-saving formulas in spreadsheet format for the calculation of propagation losses, received signal strength, effective range, jamming to signal ratio and other important values. The book also comes packaged with a unique antenna and propagation slide rule for quick communication link calculations.
