Together in one volume, these two short novels complete the story of the internationally bestselling space opera that Kirkus calls ´´Wondrously imagined.´´ Kevin J. Anderson´s magnificent epic The Saga of Seven Suns and its sequel The Saga of Shadows has been called ´´A space opera to rival the best the field has ever seen´´ ( SF Chronicle ), ten huge novels that cover a future interstellar empire and a galaxy at war. These two short novels, Veiled Alliances and Whistling Past the Graveyard , tell key parts of the saga. Veiled Alliances is a prequel to the entire series, describing the origin of the green priests on Theroc, the first Roamer skymining operations on a gas-giant planet, the discovery of the Klikiss robots entombed in an abandoned alien city, the initial Ildiran expedition to Earth, the rescue of the generation ship Burton and the tragedy that leads to sinister breeding experiments on Dobro. Whistling Past the Graveyard is the connecting novel between the two series, lead-in to the Hugo-nominated novel The Dark Between the Stars. Trade Minister Rlinda Kett seeks to reestablish contact with lost human colonies that have vanished in the chaos after the elemental war nearly destroyed the cosmos. She travels to a planet called Happiness, site of an isolated neo-Amish colony where the treacherous Prince Daniel was exiled. As a civil war brews among the Roamer clans over the old ways versus new business methods, some brave clans venture back to skymining again, harvesting the restless clouds of huge gas giants-where the threat of the devastating hydrogue aliens always looms… ´´A setting so rich and detailed that the reader will suspend disbelief and actually be there.´´-R.A. Salvatore
More than 162,000 networking Product Description ´´For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.´´ -Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a detailed and visual guide to today´s TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There´s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks. Building on the late W. Richard Stevens´ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP´s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP´s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols-such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi-through network, transport, and application layers. Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks. Features + Benefits W. Richard Stevens´ legendary TCP/IP guide, now updated by top network protocol developer and instructor Kevin Fall Shows how each protocol actually operates, and explains why they work that way New coverage includes RPC, access control, authentication, privacy, NFS, SMB/CIFS, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, email, Web, web services, wireless, wireless security, and much more Foreword xxv Preface to the Second Edition xxvii Adapted Preface to the First Edition xxxiii Chapter 1: Introduction 1 1.1 Architectural Principles 2 1.2 Design and Implementation 8 1.3 The Architecture and Protocols of the TCP/IP Suite 13 1.4 Internets, Intranets, and Extranets 19 1.5 Designing Applications 20 1.6 Standardization Process 22 1.7 Implementations and Software Distributions 24 1.8 Attacks Involving the Internet Architecture 25 1.9 Summary 26 1.10 References 28 Chapter 2: The Internet Address Architecture 31 2.1 Introduction 31 2.2 Expressing IP Addresses 32 2.3 Basic IP Address Structure 34 2.4 CIDR and Aggregation 46 2.5 Special-Use Addresses 50 2.6 Allocation 62 2.7 Unicast Address Assignment 65 2.8 Attacks Involving IP Addresses 70 2.9 Summary 71 2.10 References 72 Chapter 3: Link Layer 79 3.1 Introduction 79 3.2 Ethernet and the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards 80 3.3 Full Duplex, Power Save, Autonegotiation, and 802.1X Flow Control 94 3.4 Bridges and Switches 98 3.5 Wireless LANs-IEEE 802.11(Wi-Fi) 111 3.6 Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) 130 3.7 Loopback 145 3.8 MTU and Path MTU 148 3.9 Tunneling Basics 149 3.10 Attacks on the Link Layer 154 3.11 Summary 156 3.12 References 157 Chapter 4: ARP: Address Resolution Protocol 165 4.1 Introduction 165 4.2 An Example 166 4.3 ARP Cache 169 4.4 ARP Frame Format 170 4.5 ARP Examples 171 4.6 ARP Cache Timeout 174 4.7 Proxy ARP 174 4.8 Gratuitous ARP and Address Conflict Detection (ACD) 175 4.9 The arp Command 177 4.10 Using ARP to Set an Embedded Device´s IPv4 Address 178 4.11 Attacks Involving ARP 178 4.12 Summary 179 4.13 References 179 Chapter 5: The Internet Protocol (IP) 181 5.1 Introduction 181 5.2 IPv4 and IPv6 Headers 183 5.3 IPv6 Extension Headers 194 5.4 IP Forwarding 208 5.5 Mobile IP 215 5.6 Host Processing of IP Datagrams 220 5.7 Attacks Involving IP 226 5.8 Summary 226 5.9 References 228 Chapter 6: System Configuration: DHCP and Autoconfiguration 233 6.1 Introduction 233 6.2 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) 234 6.3 Stateless Address
