Die Kunst der Täuschung

Mitnick führt den Leser in die Denk- und Handlungsweise des Social Engineering ein, beschreibt konkrete Betrugsszenarien und zeigt eindrucksvoll die dramatischen Konsequenzen, die sich daraus ergeben. Dabei nimmt Mitnick sowohl die Perspektive des Angreifers als auch des Opfers ein und erklärt damit sehr eindrucksvoll, wieso die Täuschung so erfolgreich conflict - und wie guy sich effektiv dagegen schützen kann.

Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems: Second IEEE International Conference, DCOSS 2006, San Francisco, CA, USA, June 18-20, 2006. Proceedings

The ebook constitutes the refereed court cases of the second one overseas convention on dispensed Computing in Sensor structures, DCOSS 2006, held in San Francisco, California, united states in June 2006. The 33 revised complete papers awarded have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from 87 submissions. The papers concentrate on dispensed computing concerns in large-scale networked sensor structures, together with systematic layout innovations and instruments; they disguise subject matters corresponding to allotted algorithms and functions, programming help and middleware, information aggregation and dissemination, protection, info fusion, lifetime maximization, and localization.

Developments in Soft Computing

Smooth Computing has come of age. specifically, man made Neural Networks, Fuzzy common sense and Evolutionary Computing now play a tremendous function in lots of domain names the place conventional suggestions were chanced on in need of. As this quantity confirms, hybrid recommendations that mix a couple of of the delicate Computing ways are relatively profitable in lots of areas of difficulty.

Example text

This centralised form of communication is best utilized in environments where there are many agents that are grouped together, to ensure that message consistency is maintained. Another means of message dissemination would be to use chains. A message chain could be formed in the communicating agent groups so that the information is sent out from the sender to the other agents in the group. This would eliminate the use of a blackboard structure and aid the originator agent in such a manner that it would not send the same copy to every receiving agent.

Let us show an example. Assume there are two agents i and j, the finite horizon T = 2, the listen cost is c = 30, and the tiger cost is d = 40. The initial policy is: first Listen, then OpenLeft when HR is observed, OpenRight when HL is observed, and OpenLeft when Reset is observed. First, we calculate the best response for agent j as: first Listen, then OpenLeft when HR is observed, and OpenRight when HL is observed. In this case, observation Reset has zero probability. In such a case, JESP-NE simply assigns some default policy in this branch.

Aj , st+1 ) · O(st , ai , . . , aj , ω) · |Aj1|−1 8: normalize B t+1 9: return B t+1 searches for the policies on all belief states, while JESP-NE only searches for the 1 policies on Bi1 and B i . Notice that Algorithm 4 defines value function Vtai that represents the expected reward that the agents will receive when agent i follows action ai at the t-th step. Also, Algorithm 5 defines agent i’s belief state Bit+1 at the t+1-st step when i chooses action ai and receives observation ωit+1 at the t-th step.
