Linux Kernel Networking: Implementation and Theory

Linux Kernel Networking: Implementation and Theory Lowest new price: $41.94
Lowest used price: $51.54
List price: $59.99
Author: Rami Rosen

Linux Kernel Networking takes you on a guided in-depth tour of the current Linux networking implementation and the theory behind it. Linux kernel networking is a complex topic, so the book won't burden you with topics not directly related to networking. This book will also not overload you with cumbersome line-by-line code walkthroughs not directly related to what you're searching for; you'll find just what you need, with in-depth explanations in each chapter and a quick reference at the end of each chapter.

Linux Kernel Networking is the only up-to-date reference guide to understanding how networking is implemented, and it will be indispensable in years to come since so many devices now use Linux or operating systems based on Linux, like Android, and since Linux is so prevalent in the data center arena, including Linux-based virtualization technologies like Xen and KVM.

What you’ll learn

    •Kernel networking basics, including socket buffers
    •How key protocols like ARP, Neighbour Discovery and ICMP are implemented
    •In-depth looks at both IPv4 and IPv6
    •Everything you need to know about Linux routing
    •How netfilter and IPsec are implemented
    •Linux wireless networking
    •Additional topics like Network Namespaces, NFC, IEEE 802.15.4, Bluetooth, InfiniBand and more

      Who this book is for

      Software developers and architects, project managers, CTOs, network admins and architects, network security professionals, computer science researchers, and Linux kernel hackers. A basic knowledge of C and networking is required; basic knowledge of the Linux kernel is helpful but not mandatory.

      Linux Device Drivers, 3rd Edition

      Linux Device Drivers, 3rd Edition Lowest new price: $20.40
      Lowest used price: $13.99
      List price: $39.95
      Author: Jonathan Corbet

      Device drivers literally drive everything you're interested in--disks, monitors, keyboards, modems--everything outside the computer chip and memory. And writing device drivers is one of the few areas of programming for the Linux operating system that calls for unique, Linux-specific knowledge. For years now, programmers have relied on the classic Linux Device Drivers from O'Reilly to master this critical subject. Now in its third edition, this bestselling guide provides all the information you'll need to write drivers for a wide range of devices.

      Over the years the book has helped countless programmers learn:

      • how to support computer peripherals under the Linux operating system
      • how to develop and write software for new hardware under Linux
      • the basics of Linux operation even if they are not expecting to write a driver
      The new edition of Linux Device Drivers is better than ever. The book covers all the significant changes to Version 2.6 of the Linux kernel, which simplifies many activities, and contains subtle new features that can make a driver both more efficient and more flexible. Readers will find new chapters on important types of drivers not covered previously, such as consoles, USB drivers, and more.

      Best of all, you don't have to be a kernel hacker to understand and enjoy this book. All you need is an understanding of the C programming language and some background in Unix system calls. And for maximum ease-of-use, the book uses full-featured examples that you can compile and run without special hardware.

      Today Linux holds fast as the most rapidly growing segment of the computer market and continues to win over enthusiastic adherents in many application areas. With this increasing support, Linux is now absolutely mainstream, and viewed as a solid platform for embedded systems. If you're writing device drivers, you'll want this book. In fact, you'll wonder how drivers are ever written without it.

      Understanding Linux Network Internals

      Understanding Linux Network Internals Lowest new price: $31.33
      Lowest used price: $24.58
      List price: $59.99
      Author: Christian Benvenuti

      If you've ever wondered how Linux carries out the complicated tasks assigned to it by the IP protocols -- or if you just want to learn about modern networking through real-life examples -- Understanding Linux Network Internals is for you.

      Like the popular O'Reilly book, Understanding the Linux Kernel, this book clearly explains the underlying concepts and teaches you how to follow the actual C code that implements it. Although some background in the TCP/IP protocols is helpful, you can learn a great deal from this text about the protocols themselves and their uses. And if you already have a base knowledge of C, you can use the book's code walkthroughs to figure out exactly what this sophisticated part of the Linux kernel is doing.

      Part of the difficulty in understanding networks -- and implementing them -- is that the tasks are broken up and performed at many different times by different pieces of code. One of the strengths of this book is to integrate the pieces and reveal the relationships between far-flung functions and data structures. Understanding Linux Network Internals is both a big-picture discussion and a no-nonsense guide to the details of Linux networking. Topics include:

      • Key problems with networking
      • Network interface card (NIC) device drivers
      • System initialization
      • Layer 2 (link-layer) tasks and implementation
      • Layer 3 (IPv4) tasks and implementation
      • Neighbor infrastructure and protocols (ARP)
      • Bridging
      • Routing
      • ICMP

      Author Christian Benvenuti, an operating system designer specializing in networking, explains much more than how Linux code works. He shows the purposes of major networking features and the trade-offs involved in choosing one solution over another. A large number of flowcharts and other diagrams enhance the book's understandability.
