Ghost in the Wires

Ghost in the Wires My Adventures as the World's Most Wanted Hacker by William L. Simon, Steve Wozniak & Kevin Mitnick

In this "intriguing, insightful and extremely educational" novel, the world's most famous hacker teaches you easy cloaking and counter-measures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data (Frank W. Abagnale). Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world's biggest companies -- and no matter how fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. As the FBI's net finally began to tighten, Mitnick went on the run, engaging in an increasingly sophisticated game of hide-and-seek that escalated through false identities, a host of cities, and plenty of close shaves, to an ultimate showdown with the Feds, who would stop at nothing to bring him down. Ghost in the Wires is a thrilling true story of intrigue, suspense, and unbelievable escapes -- and a portrait of a visionary who forced the authorities to rethink the way they pursued him, and forced companies to rethink the way they protect their most sensitive information. "Mitnick manages to make breaking computer code sound as action-packed as robbing a bank." -- NPR

iCloud for Beginners - Scott La Counte Cover Art

iCloud for Beginners

iCloud for Beginners A Ridiculously Simple Guide to Online Storage by Scott La Counte

A beginners guide to moving to the cloud. iCloud is something that Apple doesn't talk a lot about but is perhaps their biggest service. It's estimated that nearly 850 million people use it. The thing about it, however, is many people don't even know they're using it. What exactly is it? If you are familiar with Google Drive, then the concept is something you probably already understand. It's an online storage locker. But it's more than that. It is a place where you can store files, and it also syncs everything-so if you send a message on your iPhone, it appears on your MacBook and iPad. If you work on a Keynote presentation from your iPad, you can continue where you left off on your iPhone. iCloud has become even more powerful as our photo library grows. Photos used to be relatively small, but as cameras have advanced, the size goes up. Most photos on your phone are several MB big. iCloud means you can keep the newest ones on your phone and put the older ones in the cloud. It also means you don't have to worry about paying for the phone with the biggest hard drive-in fact, even if you have the biggest hard drive, there's a chance it won't fit all of your photos. This short book will help new users navigate their way around the cloud service.

Designing Distributed Systems - Brendan Burns Cover Art

Designing Distributed Systems

Designing Distributed Systems Patterns and Paradigms for Scalable, Reliable Services by Brendan Burns

Without established design patterns to guide them, developers have had to build distributed systems from scratch, and most of these systems are very unique indeed. Today, the increasing use of containers has paved the way for core distributed system patterns and reusable containerized components. This practical guide presents a collection of repeatable, generic patterns to help make the development of reliable distributed systems far more approachable and efficient. Author Brendan Burns—Director of Engineering at Microsoft Azure—demonstrates how you can adapt existing software design patterns for designing and building reliable distributed applications. Systems engineers and application developers will learn how these long-established patterns provide a common language and framework for dramatically increasing the quality of your system. Understand how patterns and reusable components enable the rapid development of reliable distributed systemsUse the side-car, adapter, and ambassador patterns to split your application into a group of containers on a single machineExplore loosely coupled multi-node distributed patterns for replication, scaling, and communication between the componentsLearn distributed system patterns for large-scale batch data processing covering work-queues, event-based processing, and coordinated workflows

Networking for Systems Administrators - Michael W. Lucas Cover Art

Networking for Systems Administrators

Networking for Systems Administrators by Michael W. Lucas

Stop waiting for the network team! If basic TCP/IP was hard, network administrators couldn’t do it. Servers give sysadmins a incredible visibility into the network—once they know how to unlock it. Most sysadmins don’t need to understand window scaling, or the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 echo requests, or other intricacies of the TCP/IP protocols. You need only enough to deploy your own applications and get easy support from the network team. This book teaches you: How modern networks really work The essentials of TCP/IP The next-generation protocol, IPv6 The right tools to diagnose network problems, and how to use them Troubleshooting everything from the physical wire to DNS How to see the traffic you send and receive Connectivity testing How to communicate with your network team to quickly resolve problems A systems administrator doesn’t need to know the innards of TCP/IP, but knowing enough to diagnose your own network issues transforms a good sysadmin into a great one.
