The NIST Computer Security Handbook [NIST, 1995] defines the term computer security as “protection afforded to an automated information system in order to attain the applicable objectives of preserving the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of information system resources (includes hardware, software, firmware, information/data, and telecommunications).” The security concepts of confidentiality, integrity and availability are also called the CIA triad.
