Security is the practice by which individuals and organizations protect their physical and intellectual property from all forms of attack and pillage. Although security concerns are not new, there is revived interest in the entire area of security in computing systems. This is because today's information systems have become the repositories for both personal and corporate assets and computer networks are providing new levels of access for users. Consequently, new opportunities for unauthorized interaction and possible abuse may occur. In order to combat potential security threats, users need programs they can rely on. Moreover, developers are looking for a development platform that has been designed with built-in security capabilities.
