"The illustrations are a very strong part of this book. They are well conceived, always to the point, and in color. One interesting editorial feature is the so-called 'Key Points,' boxes that interrupt the text with a framed statement emphasizing a single important aspect. In addition, the book has very good bibliographical notes, which are extremely rare in this type of publication. Each chapter is followed by an extensive list of relevant citations, often with accompanying explanations.Overall, the book is very enlightening and engineers can learn a lot from it."--Computing Reviews.com, December 28, 2012 "Embedded Systems Security provides real-world examples of risk and exploitation; most importantly the book offers clear insight into methods used to counter vulnerabilities to build true, native security into technology."--Adriel Desautels, President and CTO, Netragard, LLC "Written by leading authorities on security in embedded systems (a lead designer of an NSA certified cryptographic system and a lead developer on the single highest rated software product in the Common Criteria security certification rating system), this book provides an overview of security principles, vulnerability concerns and applicable technologies. Real world examples of system weakness and exploitation illustrate the need for security in development and give practical advice for effective techniques to counteract threats. Areas addressed include data protection protocols, emerging embedded systems, networking, cryptography, system architecture, hypervisors, operating systems and storage."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 186
