LINUX CLEARLY EXPLAINED: PFAFFENBER
Linux Networking Clearly Explained: Bryan Pfaffenberger, Michael Jang
All you need to know about Storage Area Networks The amount of data of an average company doubles every year. Thus, companies who own 1TB of data today will own 32TB in five years. Storage networks help to tame such data quantities and to manage this data growth efficiently. Since stored data and information are the biggest asset of any company, anyone who is involved in the planning or the operation of IT systems requires a basic knowledge of the principle and the use of storage networks. Storage Networks Explained covers the fundaments, techniques and functions of storage networks such as disk subsystems, Fibre Channel SAN, Internet SCSI (iSCSI), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Network Attached Storage (NAS), file systems, and storage virtualization. Furthermore the authors describe the use of these techniques and how they are designed to achieve high-availability, flexibility, and scalability of data and applications. Additional attention is given to network backup and the management of storage networks. Written by leading experts in the field, this book on storage area networks is updated and fully revised. Key features: * Presents the basic concepts of storage networks, such as I/O techniques, disk subsystems, virtualization, NAS and SAN file systems * Covers the design of storage networks which provide flexible, highly-available, and scaleable IT systems * Explains the use of storage networks for data sharing, data protection, and digital archiving * Discusses management of storage networks using SNMP, SMI-S, and IEEE 1244 This book provides system administrators and system architects, as well as students and decision makers, with the tools needed for optimal selection and cost-effective use of storage networks. The Linux Journal awarded the first edition with the ´´Editor´s Choice Award 2005´´ in the category ´´System Administration Book.´´
If you want to learn how to use Linux, but don´t know where to start, listen on. Knowing where to start when learning a new skill can be a challenge, especially when the topic seems so vast. There can be so much information available that you can´t even decide where to start. Or worse, you start down the path of learning and quickly discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren´t explained. This kind of experience is frustrating and leaves you with more questions than answers. Linux for Beginners doesn´t make any assumptions about your background or knowledge of Linux. You need no prior knowledge to benefit from this audiobook. You will be guided step by step using a logical and systematic approach. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered, they are explained in plain language, making it easy for anyone to understand. Here is what you will learn by listening to Linux for Beginners: How to get access to a Linux server if you don´t already What a Linux distribution is and which one to choose What software is needed to connect to Linux from Mac and Windows computers What SSH is and how to use it, including creating and using SSH keys The file system layout of Linux systems and where to find programs, configurations, and documentation The basic Linux commands you´ll use most often Creating, renaming, moving, and deleting directories Listing, reading, creating, editing, copying, and deleting files Exactly how permissions work and how to decipher the most cryptic Linux permissions with ease How to use the nano, vi, and emacs editors Two methods to search for files and directories What you learn in Linux for Beginners applies to any Linux environment including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, and more. 1.

If you want to learn how to use Linux and level up your career but are pressed for time, listen on. As the founder of the Linux Training Academy and an instructor of several courses, I´ve had the good fortune of helping thousands of people hone their Linux skills. Interacting with so many people who are just getting started with the Linux operating system has given me invaluable insight into the particular struggles and challenges people face at this stage. One of the biggest challenges for people interested in learning the ins and outs of Linux is simply a lack of time. When you are working with a limited and extremely valuable resource, you want to make sure you make the most of it. The next biggest challenge for Linux newcomers is knowing where to start. There is so much information available that deciding what to focus your attention on first is a big enough hurdle to keep many people from even starting. What´s worse is starting down the path of learning only to discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren´t explained. This kind of experience is frustrating and leaves you with more questions than answers. That´s why I´ve written this book. Not only have I condensed the most important material into five sections, each designed to be consumed in a day, but I´ve also structured the content in a logical and systematic manner. This way you´ll be sure to make the most out of your time by learning the foundational aspects of Linux first and then building upon that foundation each day. In Learn Linux in 5 Days, you will learn the most important concepts and commands and be guided step by step through several practical and real-world examples. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered, they are explained in plain language, making it easy to understand. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian E. Smith.

IPv6 Security Protection measures for the next Internet Protocol As the world´s networks migrate to the IPv6 protocol, networking professionals need a clearer understanding of the security risks, threats, and challenges this transition presents. In IPv6 Security, two of the world´s leading Internet security practitioners review each potential security issue introduced by IPv6 networking and present today´s best solutions. IPv6 Security offers guidance for avoiding security problems prior to widespread IPv6 deployment. The book covers every component of today´s networks, identifying specific security deficiencies that occur within IPv6 environments and demonstrating how to combat them. The authors describe best practices for identifying and resolving weaknesses as you maintain a dual stack network. Then they describe the security mechanisms you need to implement as you migrate to an IPv6-only network. The authors survey the techniques hackers might use to try to breach your network, such as IPv6 network reconnaissance, address spoofing, traffic interception, denial of service, and tunnel injection. The authors also turn to Cisco® products and protection mechanisms. You learn how to use Cisco IOS® and ASA firewalls and ACLs to selectively filter IPv6 traffic. You also learn about securing hosts with Cisco Security Agent 6.0 and about securing a network with IOS routers and switches. Multiple examples are explained for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris hosts. The authors offer detailed examples that are consistent with today´s best practices and easy to adapt to virtually any IPv6 environment. Scott Hogg, CCIE® No. 5133, is Director of Advanced Technology Services at Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI). He is responsible for setting the company´s technical direction and helping it create service offerings for emerging technologies such as IPv6. He is the Chair of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force. Eric Vyncke, Cisco Distinguished System Engineer, consults on security issues throughout Europe. He has 20 years´ experience in security and teaches security seminars as a guest professor at universities throughout Belgium. He also participates in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and has helped several organizations deploy IPv6 securely. Understand why IPv6 is already a latent threat in your IPv4-only network Plan ahead to avoid IPv6 security problems before widespread deployment Identify known areas of weakness in IPv6 security and the current state of attack tools and hacker skills Understand each high-level approach to securing IPv6 and learn when to use each Protect service provider networks, perimeters, LANs, and host/server connections Harden IPv6 network devices against attack Utilize IPsec in IPv6 environments Secure mobile IPv6 networks Secure transition mechanisms in use during the migration from IPv4 to IPv6 Monitor IPv6 security Understand the security implications of the IPv6 protocol, including issues related to ICMPv6 and the IPv6 header structure Protect your network against large-scale threats by using perimeter filtering techniques and service provider?focused security practices Understand the vulnerabilities that exist on IPv6 access networks and learn solutions for mitigating each This security book is part of the Cisco...
