Before the multi-million, runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown set his razor-sharp research and storytelling skills on the most powerful intelligence organization on earth--the National Security Agency (NSA)--in this thrilling novel, Digital Fortress. When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant and beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage...not by guns or bombs, but by a code so ingeniously complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves. From the underground hallways of power to the skyscrapers of Tokyo to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds. It is a battle for survival--a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius...an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the post-cold war balance of power. Forever.

The Unauthorized Dan Brown Update includes information about Digital Fortress, Angels & Demons, Deception Point, The Da Vinci Code (book and movie), The Solomon Key, and subsequent novels. It's a "mini" book in the sense that it is fairly thin - 96 pages to start with, although it will grow over time. (For example, detailed chapter-by-chapter analysis of The Solomon Key will be added soon after that novel is published.) This is a "meta" book in the sense that it complements, without trying to replace, the many worthy books that are already available about The Da Vinci Code. This book is unique in that it provides a "nimble," timely report on *all* of Dan Brown's activities, including everything that is known about The Solomon Key, "The Da Vinci Code" movie, and beyond.

La Crypto è una branca della famosa NSA, la National Security Agency americana. La sua specialità è appunto la crittografia, ossia la decifrazione di codici segreti che si teme possano costituire una minaccia per gli Stati Uniti e il mondo intero. A capo della squadra di supercervelli di questa agenzia c'è la giovane e avvenente Susan Fletcher, matematica di fama. Susan, un giorno che sembra in tutto e per tutto come gli altri, fa una terribile scoperta; TRANSLTR, il supercomputer della Crypto preposto alla decrittazione in tempo reale dei codici più complessi, va in stallo. Dopo le prime verifiche, si insinua nei tecnici la certezza che non si tratta di un guasto, né di un atto di terrorismo informatico. Semplicemente TRANSLTR è al lavoro, alle prese con un algoritmo mai incontrato e che non riesce a decifrare. Ben presto questo codice misterioso, che gira indisturbato in rete, avrà un nome; Digital Fortress, la fortezza digitale. La chiave della sua inespugnabilità è letteralmente tra le dita del suo creatore, essendo stata incisa sul retro di un anello. Ma Ensei Tankado, ex matematico della NSA, è morto in un attacco cardiaco più che sospetto, e l'anello è sparito. Comincia da quel momento una caccia senza esclusione di colpi per impadronirsi della chiave che dà l'accesso al codice inespugnabile. E Susan, aiutata in questa corsa contro il tempo dal fidanzato Dave Becker, scoprirà che tra coloro che cercano l'accesso alla Fortezza Digitale per gli scopi più oscuri, c'è più di un insospettabile...

Durch den Computer, oder besser: durch die neuen Kommunikationsmöglichkeiten hat sich die Bildungslandschaft gravierend verändert. Vorbei ist die Zeit, wo man als Student zwin-gend an seinem Studienort sein musste, um eine Vorlesung zu besuchen. Durch die neuen technischen Möglichkeiten wird das Wohnzim-mer zum Hörsaal. Das "Lernen" ist mittlerweile orts- und zeitunabhängig geworden. Damit er-reichen die Hochschulen neue Zielgruppen. Diese neuen Möglichkeiten sind eine große Herausforderung für die Lehrenden. Es reicht nicht, einfach ein Vorlesungsskript oder Semi-narlösungen ins Netz stellen. Vielmehr kommt es darauf an, Konzepte zu entwickeln, um die neuen Formen des Lehrens und Lernens effek-tiv und effizient nutzen zu können. Dieses Buch untersucht anhand konkreter Bei-spiele die Frage, wie man die neuen Möglich-keiten im Direktstudium optimal nutzen kann. Welche Möglichkeiten bieten sich, und wie können diese in die Präsenzlehre eingebunden werden. Gegenstand ist also nicht das "reine" E-Learning, sondern das Blended Learning, al-so das Vermischen von Präsenzlehre und E-Learning-Komponenten.

Die kryptographische Abteilung des US-Geheimdienstes NSA verfügt über einen geheimen Super-Computer, der in der Lage ist, innerhalb kürzester Zeit jeden Code (und somit jede verschlüsselte Botschaft) zu knacken. Der Rechner kommt zum Einsatz, wenn Terroristen, Drogenhändler und andere Kriminelle ihre Pläne mittels codierter Texte verschleiern und die Sicherheit der USA auf dem Spiel steht. In der Vergangenheit konnten die Kryptographen täglich hunderte von Codes knacken - bis zu dem Tage, als Diabolus zum Einsatz kommt: Ein mysteriöses Programm, das den Super-Rechner offenbar überfordert. Der Entwickler des Programms droht, Diabolus der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen. Würde dieses Programm zum Verschlüsselungs-Standard werden, wäre der erfolgreichen Verbrechensbekämpfung der NSA über Nacht die Basis entzogen. Die Mitarbeiter des Geheimdienstes setzen alle Hebel in Bewegung, das drohende Desaster zu verhindern ... Mit Diabolus schrieb Bestsellerautor Dan Brown einen spannenden Thriller, der in die Welt der Chiffren und Geheimcodes entführt.

The definitive truth within Dan Brown's fantastic fiction—revealed at last. With millions of copies of his books in print, a major motion picture based on The Da Vinci Code in theaters, and religious leaders everywhere launching scathing attacks on his work, Dan Brown is, quite simply, a phenomenon. His novels, intricate mosaics combining well-researched facts with action-packed storytelling, have created their own industry of location tours, seminars—even PBS specials. But perhaps the one thing that still keeps his readers guessing is that nagging question: How much of this is true? The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion tells all. Unlike the avalanche of books specifically about The Da Vinci Code , The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion covers all of Dan Brown's books and, crucially, has no religious agenda or political axe to grind—these are the facts. • Could there actually be an unbreakable code that would cripple US intelligence, as in Digital Fortress? • How much truth lies in The Da Vinci Code's history-altering propositions that have so angered the Vatican? • Are the Illuminati from Angels and Demons really alive and well? The answers are here, covering every picture, place, proper name, and historical event through all of Brown's books, explaining what's absolutely true, possible, improbable, or completely fictitious. One of Dan Brown's greatest accomplishments as a writer is his uncanny ability to blur the line between fact and fiction. Now, with The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion, readers will at last have all of the information to distinguish for themselves between the inventions of a master storyteller and the historical revelations of a first-rate investigator. John Helfers is a full-time writer and editor currently living on Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is the co-editor of The Valdemar Companion, a guide to the work and life of fantasy writer Mercedes Lackey. Recent published books include two anthologies he edited, In the Shadow of Evil and Slipstreams. He has also written nonfiction, with his history of the United States Navy, The Alpha Bravo Delta Guide to the U.S. Navy, published in 2003.

In the latest high-intensity thriller in the New York Times bestselling sniper series, Marine Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is sent into Pakistan, where an international team of medical workers has been executed in order to cover up a deadly terrorist secret. In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio. He snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister, just before his entire team is slaughtered. His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's death is in that cellphone picture. No one believes her until she finds Swanson and the secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder—what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces. Now the two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror. The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?

SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND Florence: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings. A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city. Only Langdon’s knowledge of the hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers. With only a few lines from Dante’s The Inferno to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the Renaissance’s most celebrated artworks to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat... When it was published in the summer of 2013, Inferno became a global sensation, selling over 15 million copies in hardcover. This new and exclusive illustrated edition illuminates the sights and cities which form the backdrop to Dan Brown’s most thought-provoking and compelling novel yet, and reveals the rich tapestry of history, art and literature which inspired its narrative.
