This new book is a clearly written, well structured guide to building secure distributed applications with CORBA. It helps securing CORBA applications, integrating security infrastructure with CORBA applications, and evaluating the security effectiveness of distributed applications. You get a comprehensive study of the CORBA security architecture, providing you with a better understanding of its goals and limitations. It serves as your complete reference for understanding security in distributed systems. The book also generously illustrates the usage of the MICOSec CORBA security services implementation, including important information on the installation and configuration of MICOSec, the usage of two different kinds of application-facing interfaces, and the configuration of CORBA security for applications that do not contain any security-related modifications.
