Sun Certified Security Administrator for Solaris 9 & 10 by John Chirillo

By John Chirillo

First of all, a bit approximately me to provide this assessment context. i've been operating within the as a *nix administrator with a heavy focus on sunlight items for the final 12 years. For the final yr and a part, i've been engaged on my organization's Solaris 10 baseline as one of many lead designers and the technical safeguard architect for the baseline. essentially that implies i've got spent the final 18 months or so having a look into safeguard concerns and development a typical baseline that meets our wishes in the Solaris 10 paradigm.

I took and handed the examination a couple of days in the past utilizing this booklet as a source and provide the next observations approximately it:

When i buy a booklet for certification education, I anticipate issues. First I count on it to be appropriate to the examination in query, and moment I count on it to have a lifestyles after the examination as a table reference. the main very good Calkins ebook for Solaris 10 approach management is a smart instance of what i'm conversing about.

This booklet does neither of these issues. the 1st part is a primer at the easy rules of IT defense. As such, it does a satisfactory task. that is half the booklet spent on info that's simply accessible from any variety of sources.

The moment part, that is semi-technical in nature, covers a element of the testable issues, leaving out essentially the most very important safety features brought in Solaris 10. what's lined is finished from the pre-Solaris 10 viewpoint and is essentially dead for somebody trying to examine functional Solaris 10 safeguard. The publication will be far better marketed if it got rid of Solaris 10 from the name. even supposing i do not believe the cloth that's lined is finished on sufficient of a technical foundation for Solaris nine safety certification either.

Basically while you are trying to find a Solaris nine protection primer, that explains the general idea of a few of the Solaris nine OS security measures, this can be an appropriate book.

The merely cause I handed the examination is simply because i've been engaged on safeguard comparable tasks on Solaris 10 for your time. not anything beats sensible event. when you are searching for technical information regarding Solaris 10 safety features, try out Glenn Brunette's internet web publication and shows that are all locatable through google. He has a few nice figure out there within the public area speaking approximately this topic.

The Cathedral & the Bazaar: Musings on Linux and Open Source by Eric S. Raymond

By Eric S. Raymond

This can be how we did it." --Linus Torvalds, author of the Linux kernel

It begun with a chain of strange records. The prime challenger to Microsoft's stranglehold at the laptop is an working procedure known as Linux, the made of hundreds of thousands of volunteer programmers who collaborate over the net. The software program in the back of a majority of the entire world's sites doesn't come from an important corporation both, yet from a loosely coordinated crew of volunteer programmers known as the Apache crew. the net itself, and masses of its center software program, used to be built via a technique of networked collaboration.

The key to those wonderful successes is a circulate that has turn out to be referred to as open resource, since it is determined by the facility of programmers to freely proportion their application resource code in order that others can increase it. In 1997, Eric S. Raymond defined the middle ideas of this circulation in a manifesto referred to as "The Cathedral and the Bazaar," which used to be released and freely redistributed over the Internet.

Mr. Raymond's considering electrified the pc undefined. He argues that the advance of the Linux working approach by means of a unfastened confederation of hundreds of thousands of programmers--without significant undertaking administration or control--turns on its head every little thing we inspiration we knew approximately software program venture administration. Internet-enabled collaboration and unfastened info sharing, now not monopolistic keep watch over, is the major to innovation and product quality.

This suggestion used to be attention-grabbing to greater than programmers and software program undertaking leaders. It advised a complete new method of doing company, and the opportunity of unheard of shifts within the energy buildings of the pc industry.

The rush to capitalize at the concept of open resource all started with Netscape's selection to unencumber its flagship Netscape Navigator product less than open resource licensing phrases in early 1998. prior to lengthy, Fortune 500 businesses like Intel, IBM, and Oracle have been becoming a member of the social gathering. through August 1999, whilst the prime Linux distributor, crimson Hat software program, made its highly winning public inventory providing, it had develop into transparent that open resource was once "the subsequent massive thing" within the computing device industry.

This progressive booklet starts off out with "A short heritage of Hackerdom"--the ancient roots of the open-source movement--and info the occasions that resulted in the popularity of the facility of open resource. It comprises the whole textual content of "The Cathedral & the Bazaar," up-to-date and extended for this e-book, plus Mr. Raymond's different key essays at the social and monetary dynamics of open resource software program development.

Open resource is the aggressive virtue within the net Age. The Cathedral & the Bazaar is a needs to for someone who cares concerning the machine or the dynamics of the knowledge financial system.
