Abstract

Our objective in writing this book is to help readers improve their understanding of information security by carrying out hands-on experiments where they apply and deepen their knowledge. We will not cover all the related theory and assume that the reader has a basic knowledge of cryptography and information security, perhaps from other courses or books. Nevertheless, we will summarize some of the more central notions that are relevant for the experiments.

This first chapter is cross-cutting in that we summarize principles that are relevant for the coming chapters. We present 12 security principles that provide guidelines on how to incorporate security into system design. The principles are stated as generally as possible and should help the reader to discover commonalities among the more concrete design practices presented in the subsequent chapters.
