Markets for Cybercrime Tools and Stolen Data: Hackers' Bazaar
by Lillian Ablon, Martin C. Libicki, Andrea A. Golay
Publisher: RAND Corporation 2014
Number of pages: 83
Criminal activities in cyberspace are increasingly facilitated by burgeoning black markets for both tools (e.g., exploit kits) and take (e.g., credit card information). This report, part of a multiphase study on the future security environment, describes the fundamental characteristics of these markets and how they have grown into their current state to explain how their existence can harm the information security environment.

Forensic information can be found everywhere you look. The authors develop tools to collect information from obvious and not so obvious sources, walk through analyses of real intrusions in detail, and discuss the limitations of their approach.

This is an online book about computer, network, technical, physical, information and cryptographic security, illustrated with interesting examples. It is not intended to be an introductory text, although a beginner could gain something from it.
by Stefan A. Brands - The MIT Press
In this book Stefan Brands proposes cryptographic building blocks for the design of digital certificates that preserve privacy without sacrificing security. Such certificates function in much the same way as cinema tickets or subway tokens.
