Applied Math for Security is one of the first math-based guides specifically geared for information security practitioners. Readers will learn how to use concepts from various fields of mathematics - like graph theory, computational geometry, and statistics - to create and implement ready-to-use security tools. The book is written in a lively, conversational style that engages readers from the get-go. Chapters are enriched with code examples written in Python, and feature hands-on 'proof of concept' projects that involve developing math-based applications to solve real-world problems. Readers are also able to apply the mathematical constructs that they learn to a variety of challenging scenarios, like determining the ideal location for fire stations, disrupting information flow in a social network, building facial recognition software, and designing custom tools for modern security work.
