Praise for the First Edition: "This outstanding book ... gives the reader robust concepts and implementable knowledge of this environment. Graphical user interface (GUI)-based users and developers do not get short shrift, despite the command-line interface’s (CLI) full-power treatment. ... Every programmer should read the introduction’s Unix/Linux philosophy section. ... This authoritative and exceptionally well-constructed book has my highest recommendation. It will repay careful and recursive study." --Computing Reviews, August 2011 Mastering Modern Linux, Second Edition retains much of the good material from the previous edition, with extensive updates and new topics added. The book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to Linux concepts, usage, and programming. The text helps the reader master Linux with a well-selected set of topics, and encourages hands-on practice. The first part of the textbook covers interactive use of Linux via the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the Command-Line Interface (CLI), including comprehensive treatment of the Gnome desktop and the Bash Shell. Using different apps, commands and filters, building pipelines, and matching patterns with regular expressions are major focuses. Next comes Bash scripting, file system structure, organization, and usage. The following chapters present networking, the Internet and the Web, data encryption, basic system admin, as well as Web hosting. The Linux Apache MySQL/MariaDB PHP (LAMP) Web hosting combination is also presented in depth. In the last part of the book, attention is turned to C-level programming. Topics covered include the C compiler, preprocessor, debugger, I/O, file manipulation, process control, inter-process communication, and networking. The book includes many examples and complete programs ready to download and run. A summary and exercises of varying degrees of difficulty can be found at the end of each chapter. A companion website ( provides appendices, information updates, an example code package, and other resources for instructors, as well as students.

Simple Steps to Data Encryption

Everyone wants privacy and security online, something that most computer users have more or less given up on as far as their personal data is concerned. There is no shortage of good encryption software, and no shortage of books, articles and essays that purport to be about how to use it. Yet there is precious little for ordinary users who want just enough information about encryption to use it safely and securely and appropriately--WITHOUT having to become experts in cryptography. Data encryption is a powerful tool, if used properly. Encryption turns ordinary, readable data into what looks like gibberish, but gibberish that only the end user can turn back into readable data again. The difficulty of encryption has much to do with deciding what kinds of threats one needs to protect against and then using the proper tool in the correct way. It's kind of like a manual transmission in a car: learning to drive with one is easy; learning to build one is hard. The goal of this title is to present just enough for an average reader to begin protecting his or her data, immediately. Books and articles currently available about encryption start out with statistics and reports on the costs of data loss, and quickly get bogged down in cryptographic theory and jargon followed by attempts to comprehensively list all the latest and greatest tools and techniques. After step-by-step walkthroughs of the download and install process, there's precious little room left for what most readers really want: how to encrypt a thumb drive or email message, or digitally sign a data file. There are terabytes of content that explain how cryptography works, why it's important, and all the different pieces of software that can be used to do it; there is precious little content available that couples concrete threats to data with explicit responses to those threats. This title fills that niche. By reading this title readers will be provided with a step by step hands-on guide that includes: Simple descriptions of actual threat scenarios Simple, step-by-step instructions for securing data How to use open source, time-proven and peer-reviewed cryptographic software Easy to follow tips for safer computing Unbiased and platform-independent coverage of encryption tools and techniques Simple descriptions of actual threat scenarios Simple, step-by-step instructions for securing data How to use open source, time-proven and peer-reviewed cryptographic software Easy-to-follow tips for safer computing Unbiased and platform-independent coverage of encryption tools and techniques

A preparatory text for the CompTia Linux+ (Exam# XK0-001). The purpose of this textbook is to prepare the reader to successfully complete the latest CompTIA Linux+ Certification Exam, which requires that the person seeking certification possess a working knowledge of Planning and Implementation, Installation, Configuration, Administration, Systems Maintenance, and Troubleshooting. These specific areas of required knowledge are provided inside the front cover of this book. It is suitable for readers and students in computer engineering technology, electrical engineering technology, networking technology and telecommunications technology programs, corporations, and government agencies. Linux has become popular over a relatively short period of time. There are literally thousands of programmers who have an active role in developing Linux, with hundreds of ongoing projects using Linux and various hardware for many purposes. This product is a blended educational and training solution that combines a printed text, a lab experience and an online web-based curriculum that can be delivered anytime and anywhere there is an internet connection. Students are provided with ample resource information in the text as well as from the online course. The online course includes hundreds of FLASH animations and graphics that allow a level of engagement not possible by using a text alone. It includes an online component that allows students to take the tests electronically. Once the student completes the exam it is graded; the grades are stored in the instructor's electronic gradebook and the student is provided with a "Personalized Feedback" that leads them to the points missed on the exam. This feature helps students and teachers ensure that the appropriate level of proficiency is reached for each objective. The Cisco Learning Institute is a 501 C3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to helping teachers and students use technology to enhance the learning experience. It has developed a variety of e-learning tools over the past five years for the purpose of authoring and delivering e-learning course material. The Cisco Networking Academy Program is a worldwide deployment of e-learning courses in the IT area with over 12,000 sites and 500,000 students currently taking courses, translating into the largest e-learning deployment in the world. The content delivery tools developed by the Cisco Learning Institute called Virtuoso deliver the content to the students and teachers in this extraordinarily successful program, and now the benefit of those tools is available to teachers and students preparing for CompTIA certification exams. The products developed by Cisco Learning Institute for Prentice Hall are all powered by Virtuoso.

Since its first printing in October 1991, Essential System Administration has been the definitive practical guide for Unix and Linux system administrators. The book talks about all the usual administrative tools that Unix and Linux provide-and also shows how to use those tools in smarter and more efficient ways. Author AEleen Frisch expands coverage of networking, electronic mail, security, and kernel configuration-topics of increasing importance to administrators. It also includes coverage of services such as LDAP, PAM, DHCP, and DNS, and discussions of many important open source tools, including SSH, Cfengine, Amanda, RRDTool, and Cricket. The latest versions of all major Unix platforms, including Red Hat Linux 7.3 and SuSE Linux 8, Solaris 8 and 9, FreeBSD 4.6, AIX 5, HP-UX 11 and 11i, and Tru64 5.1, have been thoroughly reviewed and tested. You will find this book indispensable whether you are responsible for a large, shared computer system or a network of workstations, or you use a standalone Unix or Linux system and have found that the fine line between a user and an administrator has vanished. And even if you aren't directly or solely responsible for system administration, you'll find that understanding important administrative functions will greatly increase your ability to use Unix effectively.
