I have been designing and implementing security products for about 7+ years now (embedded systems for 12yrs) to "high assurance" standards and I have to say these authors have done a great job with this book. I usually don't like to buy books that have not been heavily rated yet, but with security books you don't want a 10 year old book (unless maybe it is cryptography!) if you want something that is relevant. That is why I am taking the time to rate this book. I encourage anyone considering this book to buy it right now. The issues and technologies are relevant and the authors have done a great job putting this together. I am very experienced in this area, but I think it is a pretty easy read... that being said I have only got through the first three chapters so far so I will update this if I change my mind!UPDATE: I finished this book about a week ago and I still recommend it. However I will say it is a bit slanted toward Green Hills... probably has to do with the author's close relationship with them! (I'll let you look it up). So read with that in mind. You see a similar slant/sales job in the model driven design (MDD) section that was written by another person with a company that sells a tool for MDD. I would say read the content and get out the security concepts without taking too much stock in how it may reflect on a competiting vendor products.I also want to add that as far as the "Embedded Cryptography" section of the book... it is nice to have in the book but if you want to learn about cryptography there are much better sources out there. This book isn't meant to just be a source for crypto so it makes sense but just want to make the readers aware. Some suggestions for a starter book that is "Applied Cryptography" by Schenier.
