The Second Edition of Security Strategies in Linux Platforms and Applications covers every major aspect of security on a Linux system. Written by an industry expert, this book is divided into three natural parts to illustrate key concepts in the field. It opens with a discussion of the risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with Linux as an operating system using current examples and cases. Part 2 discusses how to take advantage of the layers of security available to Linux--user and group options, filesystems, and security options for important services, as well as the security modules associated with AppArmor and SELinux. The book closes with a look at the use of both open source and proprietary tools when building a layered security strategy for Linux operating system environments. Using real-world examples and exercises, this useful resource incorporates hands-on activities to walk readers through the fundamentals of security strategies related to the Linux system.

3: Internetworking with TCP/IP, Vol. III: Client-Server Programming and Applications, Linux/Posix Sockets Version

3: Internetworking with TCP/IP, Vol. III: Client-Server Programming and Applications, Linux/Posix Sockets Version Lowest new price: $45.18
Lowest used price: $29.74
List price: $90.00
Author: Douglas E. Comer

Internetworking with TCP/IP, Volume III describes the fundamental concepts of client-server computing used to build all distributed computing systems, and presents an in-depth guide to the Posix sockets standard utilized by Linux and other operating systems. Dr. Douglas E. Comer compares leading server designs, and describes the key tools and techniques used to build clients and servers, including Remote Procedure Call (RPC). The book contains examples of running programs that illustrate each approach. Comer introduces the client-server model and its software design implications; the role of concurrent processing and threads; the Socket API, and differences that impact Linux programmers. Understand the key algorithms and issues associated with client and server software design; then review three leading approaches: iterative, connectionless servers (UPD); and both iterative and concurrent connection-oriented servers (TCP). The book contains extensive coverage of threading, including a new chapter on using threads for concurrency; as well as coverage of single-threaded and multi-threaded concurrent servers. Comer introduces multi-protocol and multi-service services; reviews client concurrency; tunneling at the transport and application levels; and external data representation (XDR). He reviews RPC, distributed program generation, NFS concepts and protocol; Telnet; streaming media transport; and finally, techniques for avoiding deadlock and starvation in client-server systems. For everyone who wants to master TCP/IP and understand how the Internet works.

Valgrind 3.3 - Advanced Debugging and Profiling for Gnu/Linux Applications

Valgrind 3.3 - Advanced Debugging and Profiling for Gnu/Linux Applications Lowest new price: $14.81
Lowest used price: $8.40
List price: $19.95
Author: J. Seward
Brand: Brand: Network Theory Ltd.

This manual describes how to use Valgrind, an award-winning suite of tools for debugging and profiling GNU/Linux programs. Valgrind detects memory and threading bugs automatically, avoiding hours of frustrating bug-hunting and making your programs more stable. You can also perform detailed profiling, to speed up your programs and reduce their memory usage. The Valgrind distribution provides five tools for debugging and profiling: Memcheck (a memory error detector), Cachegrind (a cache profiler), Callgrind (a call-graph profiler, Massif (a heap profiler) and Helgrind (a thread error detector). These tools and their options are described in detail, with practical examples and advice. Valgrind is free software, available under the GNU General Public License. It runs on X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, PPC32/Linux and PPC64/Linux systems. This is a printed edition of the official reference documentation for Valgrind 3.3.0. For each copy sold 1 USD will be donated to the Valgrind developers by Network Theory Ltd.
