Dynamic Secrets in Communication Security

4.3.4 Experiments on Environmental Randomness An important feature of dynamic secrets is to harvest true randomness from the communication environment and convert the environmental randomness to randomness of key values.

Dynamic Secrets in Communication Security

Dynamic secrets are constantly generated and updated from messages exchanged between two communication users. When dynamic secrets are used as a complement to existing secure communication systems, a stolen key or password can be quickly and automatically reverted to its secret status without disrupting communication. "Dynamic Secrets in Communication Security" presents unique security properties and application studies for this technology. Password theft and key theft no longer pose serious security threats when parties frequently use dynamic secrets. This book also illustrates that a dynamic secret based security scheme guarantees impersonation attacks are detected even if an adversary steals a user’s password or their key is lost. Practitioners and researchers working in network security or wireless communications will find this book a must-have reference. "Dynamic Secrets in Communication Security" is also a valuable secondary text for advanced-level students in computer science and electrical engineering.

The Secrets of Timeless Teachers

The perpetual anxiety about America's educational system has created a state in which teachers, administrators, and parents are on a constant search for magical solutions for what ails the American classroom. Theories, reforms, and strategies abound, each purporting to be a panacea the educational establishment has long been waiting for. In TheSecrets ofTimeless Teachers: Instruction that Works in Every Generation, Jeremy S. Adams argues that the methods, habits, and behaviors that constitute powerful teaching do not change over time. In fact, an effective and impactful teacher a hundred years ago used many of the same habits and strategies a powerful teacher uses today. In essence, extraordinary teaching is timeless in nature. Like the speed of light or the sun rising in the East, it is a constant. Modern teachers who want to understand what timeless teaching looks like--and more importantly, how to do it--would be wise to study this text that is both highly descriptive and pragmatically actionable.

The Secrets of a Fifty Year Romantic Expedition

In our world, communication and messages come to us through sensory channels that guide our paths. ... When we learn to combine the experiences of our five senses with verbal language, we create a dynamic communication system.

The Secrets of a Fifty Year Romantic Expedition

Do you remember the first day I saw you? The first date we had? The first time I took you into my arms? The vow we made? Do you realize it is fifty years since we said “I do”? I love you my first lady, my queen. With Jesus as our guiding light we will continue to walk together until death. By the power of prayer I have found you. You are my special treasure. You are a life partner with so much strength and compassion, a partner with such integrity and goodness in your heart; you have guarded the inner circle of our relationship and made it the sacred centre of our life, just for Jesus, you and me. God used a picture in Ezekiel 16 to describe His people and I would like to paraphrase it by saying. ”When I pass by you again and look upon you, indeed your heart was the heart of love; so I spread my arms and covered you, I went into a covenant with you; a covenant that cannot be broken.” The more I know you, the deeper I appreciate and love you. It’s like how I’d cherish and treasure a rare and priceless work of art.

Education  Does God have an opinion

Students in America will spend over 14,000 seat hours in a classroom before they graduate from high school. On the other hand, most Christian children spend less than an hour a day in meaningful interaction with their parents, and only a few hours a week (at most) in church. Is it reasonable for us to assume that the Christian instruction they receive during off-hours will outweigh the thousands of hours of anti-Christian perspectives they are bombarded with by the media and the public school system? What does God say about how He expects Christians to educate their children? This book will radically challenge your paradigms and biases, but will consistently point you to the Word of God as the final answer for all of life, including education. Great resource for pastors, parents, and grandparents to understand the role of education in a Christian family. Aligns with the core philosophy of Master Books Curriculum and can be used as an apologetic for Christian education.

101 Ideas for Making Disciples in Your Youth Group

As youth workers, we all have our vision—the plan we hope to make real in our ministries—to change the lives of teenagers as we introduce them to Jesus. But how often have you found yourself wondering if your picture is just wrong—or thinking you just don’t know how to make your ministry match what you envision?In 101 Ideas for Making Disciples in Your Youth Group you’ll explore the idea of ACTS to create a disciple-making ministry with the elements needed to create an environment necessary to cultivate this mission. ACTS represents everything a missional youth ministry needs to be about:• Adoration—More than an act, this is a lifestyle that is fleshed out in expressions of prayerful dependence, deep gratitude, and expectancy in what God can do.• Community—This is an atmosphere of genuine caring, authentic relationships, and unity based on Christ’s love for his Church and the Church’s love for one another.• Truth-and-Grace—The basis of everything that is taught and valued, this is a setting where God’s Word is the standard and central to belief and behavior.• Serving-and-Sharing—As a way of life, serving involves helping the whole person by ministering to both believers and the lost by meeting their needs, as well as verbally sharing God’s message of grace.As you dig into each aspect of ACTS, you’ll discover Jesus’ style and see how he cultivated each element in his own ministry. Then you’ll explore the youth ministry style of each aspect, where you’ll find 25 hands-on, easy-to-implement ideas on how to cultivate the same element in your context in order to create an environment of disciple-making that finally fits your ministry.

Proactive and Dynamic Network Defense

This book discusses and summarizes current research issues, identifies challenges, and outlines future directions for proactive and dynamic network defense. This book also presents the latest fundamental research results toward understanding proactive and dynamic network defense by top researchers in related areas. It includes research results that offer formal frameworks to define proactive and dynamic network defense, and develop novel models to analyze and evaluate proactive designs and strategies in computer systems, network systems, cyber-physical systems and wireless networks. A wide variety of scientific techniques have been highlighted to study these problems in the fundamental domain. As the convergence of our physical and digital worlds grows fast pace, protecting information systems from being tampered or unauthorized access is becoming one of the most importance issues. The traditional mechanisms of network defense are built upon a static, passive, and reactive nature, which has insufficient to defend against today's attackers that attempt to persistently analyze, probe, circumvent or fool such mechanisms. It has not yet been fully investigated to address the early stage of “cyber kill chain” when adversaries carry out sophisticated reconnaissance to plan attacks against a defense system. Recently, proactive and dynamic network defense has been proposed as an important alternative towards comprehensive network defense. Two representative types of such defense are moving target defense (MTD) and deception-based techniques. These emerging approaches show great promise to proactively disrupt the cyber-attack kill chain and are increasingly gaining interest within both academia and industry. However, these approaches are still in their preliminary design stage. Despite the promising potential, there are research issues yet to be solved regarding the effectiveness, efficiency, costs and usability of such approaches. In addition, it is also necessary to identify future research directions and challenges, which is an essential step towards fully embracing proactive and dynamic network defense. This book will serve as a great introduction for advanced-level computer science and engineering students who would like to start R&D efforts in the field of proactive and dynamic network defense. Researchers and professionals who work in this related field will also find this book useful as a reference.
