Abstract : The thesis presents a wide spectrum of computer data security, including both practical and theoretical aspects of the subject. It was motivated by the concern for the general lack of adequate knowledge, techniques, implementation, and application of computer data security. The objective was to (1) review the pertinent features of data security and the relationship of these features to the computer and its users; (2) generate an awareness of the techniques and problems in data security by presenting the main issues; and (3) discuss theoretical as well as specific applications of techniques and methodology for data base security and data access control.
