Computer Science and Information Security
Information about Info Security
The full lists of databases with information about various aspects of information security are:
Tips about specific databases or series:
- Lecture Notes in Computer Science -- This series includes the papers from Eurocrypt, Asiacrypt, and Crypto.
You can search each volume separately in the library catalog, or search Google Scholar for the paper and then use FINDIT.
- TRAC (Terrorist Research and Analysis Consortium) -- Updated in real time (always notice the dates on the right side)
The Diplomat -- A daily news feed and monthly magazine that focuses on news and interest on the Asia Pacific area. (You can sort by YEAR as well as Relevance, but NOTE: it changes back to Relevance with every search. Also: “cybersecurity” can also be spelled “cyber security,” so use both, with OR.)
Law and Policy
- CQ Researcher (Congressional Quarterly) has topics you can browse. Under Defense and National Security --> Technology are fairly recent reports on Cybersecurity and on Privacy
- For more information about law or policy, contact my colleague Yunshan Ye (email@example.com), who is extremely nice
