  Computer security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use.
Computer security can be seen as a subfield of security engineering, which looks at broader security issues in addition to computer security.
Computer security is a highly complex field, and it is relatively immature, except on certain very secure systems that never make it into the news media because nothing ever goes wrong that can be publicized, and for which there is not much literature because the security details are proprietary.

 Next-Generation Secure Computing Base - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Next-Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB), formerly known as Palladium, is a software architecture designed by Microsoft which is expected to implement controversial parts of their "Trustworthy Computing" concept on future versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Microsoft's stated aim for NGSCB is to increase the security and privacy of computer users[1], but critics assert that the technology will not only fail to solve the majority of contemporary IT security problems, but also result in an increase in vendor lock-in and a resulting reduction in competition in the IT marketplace.
However, a secure method for the owner to identify themselves would be provided, and through this method the owner would be able to force the TPM to make a false attestation or decrypt data for an application that would not otherwise be allowed access to that data.

Putting applications and data onto mobile devices such as laptop computers and handheld devices is a good thing; many organizations have improved productivity by adopting mobile computing and by making their applications “always available”.
But as more employees take privileged data outside your organization’s secure environment, it is important to ensure that this improved productivity and convenience doesn’t come at the expense of security and data privacy.
Keeping confidential data secure has always been important, but new laws are making security concerns more important than ever; by recognizing the importance of maintaining customers’ data privacy they may expose companies with lax security to substantial financial penalties.

The "Next-Generation Secure Computing Base" (NGSCB), formerly known as Palladium (Pd), is Microsoft's new trusted computing architecture.
The stated aim is to fix the problems of current computer insecurity, and to create new kinds of distributed applications, where each component can know and trust the operation of other parts of the system, even when they are running on remote computers.
Simon Conant, a 'security expert' (quoted verbatim from the source article, the UK Metro) working for Microsoft said "We need to go back to the drawing board with a brand new architecture for the PC".
