Network Simulation Experiments Manual, Third Edition, is a practical tool containing detailed, simulation-based experiments to help students and professionals learn about key concepts in computer networking. It allows the networking professional to visualize how computer networks work with the aid of a software tool called OPNET to simulate network function. OPNET provides a virtual environment for modeling, analyzing, and predicting the performance of IT infrastructures, including applications, servers, and networking technologies. It can be downloaded free of charge and is easy to install.

The book’s simulation approach provides a virtual environment for a wide range of desirable features, such as modeling a network based on specified criteria and analyzing its performance under different scenarios. The experiments include the basics of using OPNET IT Guru Academic Edition; operation of the Ethernet network; partitioning of a physical network into separate logical networks using virtual local area networks (VLANs); and the basics of network design. Also covered are congestion control algorithms implemented by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP); the effects of various queuing disciplines on packet delivery and delay for different services; and the role of firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs) in providing security to shared public networks. Each experiment in this updated edition is accompanied by review questions, a lab report, and exercises.

Networking designers and professionals as well as graduate students will find this manual extremely helpful.

Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL offers a friendly presentation of the fundamental principles and practices of modern digital design. Unlike any other book in this field, transistor-level implementations are also included, which allow the readers to gain a solid understanding of a circuit's real potential and limitations, and to develop a realistic perspective on the practical design of actual integrated circuits.

Coverage includes the largest selection available of digital circuits in all categories (combinational, sequential, logical, or arithmetic); and detailed digital design techniques, with a thorough discussion on state-machine modeling for the analysis and design of complex sequential systems. Key technologies used in modern circuits are also described, including Bipolar, MOS, ROM/RAM, and CPLD/FPGA chips, as well as codes and techniques used in data storage and transmission. Designs are illustrated by means of complete, realistic applications using VHDL, where the complete code, comments, and simulation results are included.

This text is ideal for courses in Digital Design, Digital Logic, Digital Electronics, VLSI, and VHDL; and industry practitioners in digital electronics.

Web development is still one of today's most popular, active, and important programming and development activities. From a single web page to an e-commerce-enabled web site to a fully-fledged web application, the Java programming language and its frameworks allow you great flexibility and productivity for your web application development.

Learn Java for Web Development teaches web developers who are new to Java key skills, Java-based languages, and frameworks to build simple or complex web sites and applications. As soon as you pick up this book, Vishal Layka's experience guides you on a very practical learning and building journey.

You will learn the Java nuts and bolts necessary to build a simple "HelloWorld" Java (native) application, as well as a "HelloWorld" Java-based web application example that utilizes servlets and Java Server Pages (JSPs). Over the course of the book, you'll learn more about servlets and JSPs and delve into Java Server Faces (JSFs) and the expression language found in each of these by applying them in a real-world case study—a book store e-commerce application. Then you’ll build your web application using Apache Struts2 and the Spring MVC framework.

The book concludes by exploring the web application that you've built and examining industry best practices and how these might fit with your application, as well as covering alternative Java Web frameworks like Groovy/Grails and Scala/Play 2. You also can explore the basics of Java, Groovy, and Scala in the book’s appendices.

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of thelow-tech threats to high-tech security
Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form oneof the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawneddozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since hisrelease from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his lifearound and established himself as one of the most sought-aftercomputer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception,the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the oldadage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief."
Focusing on the human factors involved with information security,Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols inthe world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent onrifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined tocrash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories ofsuccessful attacks on business and government, he illustrates justhow susceptible even the most locked-down information systems areto a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating fromthe points of view of both the attacker and the victims, heexplains why each attack was so successful and how it could havebeen prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscentof a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnickoffers advice for preventing these types of social engineeringhacks through security protocols, training programs, and manualsthat address the human element of security.
The lab exercises contained in the network simulation experiments manual are based on the OPNET simulator (v. 9), a network simulation tool that was originally developed at M.I.T. It provides networking professionals with the option of implementing experiments from their homes or workplaces and the lab manual comes with directions for downloading the free easy-to-install software (special version to this book only--see system requirements below). These labs run through simulations closely tied to the material in the text so that you can visualize the discussions covering core network topologies. Various scenarios are presented within each topology, and review questions and a lab report exercise accompany each lab experiment.
