Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Despite disagreement over how (or even whether) there's money to be made on the Internet, there seems to be no disagreement that businesses should plunge ahead. This volume, described as an "in-depth executive briefing" opens by explaining how the Internet developed and offers basic definitions such as how to decipher a World Wide Web address. But it goes beyond jargon to a discussion of larger issues, such as how to arrange for secure financial transactions, what technologies will need to be developed for these transactions, as well as privacy and copyright concerns. The remaining chapters focus on the kinds of financial dealings, including what companies are involved and the medium's potential for new opportunities and for fraud. Although there is some truly useful information here, such as a guide for how companies should develop databases that can be used on the Internet, this book doesn't offer enough practical advice for smaller businesses. The audience in mind seems to be larger companies and those specifically involved in Internet dealings.

From the Publisher

Until now, commerce on the Internet has been shackled by the lack of secure transactions. This book offers an executive briefing on this vital topic. Exploring the technical underpinnings of what can and will be done on the Net, it explains the processes, issues and strategic considerations of a variety of approaches to secure transactions, including digital signatures. You'll learn about the pros and cons of each approach so you can decide which is best for your business.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on July 7, 1999
Format: Paperback
This book was a big disappointment. In very short words the book is a plug for the author's company. But even if you can live with that, the outdated material is not very valuable. My recommendation is for the authors to update the book as much of the cyberlandscape has changed in these few short years. On a positive note, the business models presented are informative. The writing style is not very clear or structured, and in 2 chapters I found more than 2 mistakes. The figures are very primitive and don't add much to the already scant information. It is a shame as I would have loved for this book to work for me. The information the book has to offer can be found free on the Internet and it is more timely.

In the brave new world of Electronic Commerce money or the concept of medium of exchange is morphing. This book lays the ground work for understanding the technology and issues of transacting on-line. Encryption, authentication, smart cards and general security issues are discussed in sufficient detail to grasp the concepts. A must read for all company owners and managers contemplating the era of digital money and preparing for the future.

Format: Paperback
Although not extremely thorough or insightful,the authors paint a clear landscape of the changing role of money in the new digital economy. Touching on several related products such as smartcards and encryption, they give the reader a solid footing in these new technolgoies
