This book is an introduction for the reader into the wonderful world of embedded device hacking. The book focuses on the smart home controllers and teaches how to evaluate the security mechanisms provided by these controllers. The book uses Veralite Smart Home Controller as an example of depicting the methodology. The "Internet of Things" phenomenon has caught up with the home automation industry and this opens up the consumers using these smart home controllers to security issues that they never would have thought about earlier. The security issues introduced by these smart home controllers allows an attacker/burglar to control everything from an IP camera to door locks in the user's home. The aim of this book is to educate the modern day tech-savy consumers about the security issues that they need to be aware about when making choices about the smart home controllers that control pretty much everything in their homes. However, keep in mind this book is extremely technical in nature!!!

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.
