This book is written to assist you in identifying the topics that pertain to you and in developing a realistic plan to get your arms around what you've already saved for retirement and start planning seriously for the future. If you're like a lot of people, you have probably changed jobs - or even careers - many times over the years. You probably weren't thinking too much about retirement, even if you did participate in one or more employer-sponsored retirement plans and opened a few registered individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Having reached your midlife years, there's a good chance you have a collection of plans and accounts scattered around, although off the top of your head, you may not know exactly where they all are and what each is invested in. Now it's time to get organized. This may seem like a daunting task. For starters, if record-keeping is not your forte, you may be unsure of where to start your search. Feeling unsure that you'll like what you find, you may have procrastinated. That is why I wrote this book - because we know that having some guidance can help you take the steps you need to in order to help secure your future.
More and more working computer professionals are confronted with the use, maintenance, or customization of cryptographic components and program certification mechanisms for local or mobile code. This text for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students tells what every computer scientist ought to know about cryptographic systems, security protocols, and secure information flow in programs. Highlights include a detailed description of the new advanced encryption standard Rijndael; a complete description of an optimal public-key encryption using RSA which turns 'textbook RSA' into a practical implementation; a current, and formal discussion of standard security models for information flow in computer programs or human organizations; and a discussion of moral, legal, and political issues. Another novel feature of the book is the presentation of a formal model-checking tool for specifying and debugging security protocols. The book also includes numerous implementation exercises and programming projects. A supporting web site contains Java source code for the programs featured in the text plus links to other sites, including online papers and tutorials offering deeper treatments of the topics presented.
The economic empowerment of women is increasingly seen as one of the most important forces behind economic growth and the fight against poverty. Indeed, women's economic participation in an economy as entrepreneurs, employees, and leaders is recognized as a measure of a country's dynamism and viability. 'Gender Dimensions of Investment Climate Reform' provides fresh solutions to common issues that women entrepreneurs face. It presents actionable, replicable, and scalable tools for promoting gender-sensitive investment climate reforms that would benefit both women and men. The book enables development practitioners and policy makers who are not gender specialists to diagnose gender issues in an investment climate; design creative and practical solutions and recommendations for addressing gender constraints; and monitor and evaluate the implementation of those recommendations.
