|Understanding the Linux Kernel, Third Edition
Lowest new price: $29.32

List price: $59.99
Author: Daniel P. Bovet
Brand: O'Reilly Media
In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order. It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn't kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks.
The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does.
This edition of the book covers Version 2.6, which has seen significant changes to nearly every kernel subsystem, particularly in the areas of memory management and block devices. The book focuses on the following topics:
- Memory management, including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA)
- The Virtual Filesystem layer and the Second and Third Extended Filesystems
- Process creation and scheduling
- Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers
- Synchronization within the kernel
- Interprocess Communication (IPC)
- Program execution
Understanding the Linux Kernel will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but it's more than just an academic exercise. You'll learn what conditions bring out Linux's best performance, and you'll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. This book will help you make the most of your Linux system.
|The Art of Memory Forensics: Detecting Malware and Threats in Windows, Linux, and Mac Memory
Lowest new price: $53.23

Author: Michael Hale Ligh
Memory forensics provides cutting edge technology to help investigate digital attacks
Memory forensics is the art of analyzing computer memory (RAM) to solve digital crimes. As a follow-up to the best seller Malware Analyst's Cookbook, experts in the fields of malware, security, and digital forensics bring you a step-by-step guide to memory forensics—now the most sought after skill in the digital forensics and incident response fields.
Beginning with introductory concepts and moving toward the advanced, The Art of Memory Forensics: Detecting Malware and Threats in Windows, Linux, and Mac Memory is based on a five day training course that the authors have presented to hundreds of students. It is the only book on the market that focuses exclusively on memory forensics and how to deploy such techniques properly. Discover memory forensics techniques:
- How volatile memory analysis improves digital investigations
- Proper investigative steps for detecting stealth malware and advanced threats
- How to use free, open source tools for conducting thorough memory forensics
- Ways to acquire memory from suspect systems in a forensically sound manner
The next era of malware and security breaches are more sophisticated and targeted, and the volatile memory of a computer is often overlooked or destroyed as part of the incident response process. The Art of Memory Forensics explains the latest technological innovations in digital forensics to help bridge this gap. It covers the most popular and recently released versions of Windows, Linux, and Mac, including both the 32 and 64-bit editions. Bonus materials include more than 20 real-world exercises, sample memory and code files, and even a formal presentation, syllabus, and test bank.

Q&A with Robert Love, author of "Linux System Programming, 2nd Edition"
Q. Why is your book timely-- what makes it important right now?
A. Developing system software on Unix has always been in vogue, but we've seen a large increase in demand with the rise of the cloud and the web. Where before user apps were primarily client-side, UI-focused programs, now system-level software running in huge data centers at massive scale provides even the simplest of our computing functionality. The code powering the largest of cloud-based providers such as Google or Twitter down to the smallest startup is all system-level software. And nearly all of it runs on Linux.
Q. What information do you hope that readers of your book will walk away with?
A. The system API on Linux: what it is and how to use it as an expert. The book is an API reference manual, of course, but it is also chock-full of anecdotes, insider tips, and Linux-specific techniques that take it beyond your generic Unix API guide.
Q. What's the most exciting thing happening in your space?
A. Definitely the ever-increasing scale of distributed systems that power the cloud and web apps we all use. I work at Google on web search infrastructure; the scale and scope of our systems is absolutely stunning. And, at the end of the day, it is all just Linux system code running on (a very large number of) Linux machines.
Q. What are some of the topics readers will learn in the second edition of Linux System Programming?
- How to design your multithreaded application for maximum performance
- How to efficiently perform I/O
- The pitfalls behind real-time processes
- How to take advantage of modern hardware such as multicore processors or SSDs
- Why your program's I/O model dictates its threading model

"Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux" looks at the aspects of web penetration testing from the mind of an attacker. It provides real-world, practical step-by-step instructions on how to perform web penetration testing exercises.
You will learn how to use network reconnaissance to pick your targets and gather information. Then, you will use server-side attacks to expose vulnerabilities in web servers and their applications. Client attacks will exploit the way end users use web applications and their workstations. You will also learn how to use open source tools to write reports and get tips on how to sell penetration tests and look out for common pitfalls.
On the completion of this book, you will have the skills needed to use Kali Linux for web penetration tests and expose vulnerabilities on web applications and clients that access them.
What you will learn from this book
- Perform vulnerability reconnaissance to gather information on your targets
