UNIX: The Textbook, Third Edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the modern, twenty-first-century UNIX operating system. The book deploys PC-BSD and Solaris, representative systems of the major branches of the UNIX family, to illustrate the key concepts. It covers many topics not covered in more » older, more traditional textbook approaches, such as Python, UNIX System Programming from basics to socket-based network programming using the client-server paradigm, the Zettabyte File System (ZFS), and the highly developed X Windows-based KDE and Gnome GUI desktop environments. The third edition has been fully updated and expanded, with extensive revisions throughout. It features a new tutorial chapter on the Python programming language and its use in UNIX, as well as a complete tutorial on the git command with Github. It includes four new chapters on UNIX system programming and the UNIX API, which describe the use of the UNIX system call interface for file processing, process management, signal handling, interprocess communication (using pipes, FIFOs, and sockets), extensive coverage of internetworking with UNIX TCP/IP using the client-server software, and considerations for the design and implementation of production-quality client-server software using iterative and concurrent servers. It also includes new chapters on UNIX system administration, ZFS, and container virtualization methodologies using iocage, Solaris Jails, and VirtualBox. Utilizing the authors’ almost 65 years of practical teaching experience at the college level, this textbook presents well-thought-out sequencing of old and new topics, well-developed and timely lessons, a Github site containing all of the code in the book plus exercise solutions, and homework exercises/problems synchronized with the didactic sequencing of chapters in the book. With the exception of four chapters on system programming, the book can be used very successfully by a complete novice, as well as by an experienced UNIX system user, in both an informal and formal learning environment. The book may be used in several computer science and information technology courses, including UNIX for beginners and advanced users, shell and Python scripting, UNIX system programming, UNIX network programming, and UNIX system administration. It may also be used as a companion to the undergraduate and graduate level courses on operating system concepts and principles. « less

How to Conduct Your Own Security Audit
Learn how to conduct thorough security examinations via illustrations and virtual simulations A network security breach (a hack, crack, or other invasion) occurs when unauthorized access to the network is achieved and havoc results. The best possible defense is an offensive strategy that allows you to more » regularly test your network to reveal the vulnerabilities and close the holes before someone gets in. Written by veteran author and security expert John Chirillo, Hack Attacks Testing explains how to perform your own security audits. Step by step, the book covers how-to drilldowns for installing and configuring your Tiger Box operating systems, installations, and configurations for some of the most popular auditing software suites. In addition, it includes both common and custom usages, scanning methods, and reporting routines of each. Finally, Chirillo inspects the individual vulnerability scanner results and compares them in an evaluation matrix against a select group of intentional security holes on a target network. Chirillo tackles such topics as: * Building a multisystem Tiger Box * Basic Windows 2000 Server installation and configuration for auditing * Basic Linux and Solaris installation and configuration * Basic Mac OS X installation and configuration for auditing * ISS, CyberCop, Nessus, SAINT, and STAT scanners * Using security analysis tools for Mac OS X * Vulnerability assessment Bonus CD! The CD contains virtual simulations of scanners, ISS Internet Scanner evaluation version, and more. « less
