Introduction In today's networked world, the need to maintain the security of information or physical property is becoming both increasingly important and increasingly difficult. From time to time we hear about the crimes of credit card fraud, computer break-in's by hackers, or security breaches in a company or government building. In the year 1998, sophisticated cyber crooks caused well over US $100 million in losses (Reuters, 1999). In most of these crimes, the criminals were taking advantage… Expand
