E-books released by Hack2Secure
Information security is the collection of technologies, standards, policies and management practices that are applied to information to keep it secure. This e-book provides overview on some of the basic concepts laying foundation for any secure system.
Under short but precise multiple chapters, you will learn about some of information security concepts and possible attack scenarios compromising security of the system. Some of the discussed topics are like Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Authentication, Authorization, Accountability, Cryptography, SSL/TLS protocol, Hashing, Digital Signatures, Password Security, Access Control mechanism and many more. Along with this, a dedicated chapter is included on Security Design Principles. These principles concentrates on architectural structures, whether hardware or software, that are required to Support Information protection.
Data Storage Network is considered as one of the most confusing, misunderstood and complex domain in IT industry. This is primarily due to lack of awareness about Data Storage technologies, devices, protocols, features and training. So, due to scarcity of resources available in the industry, it is one of the, always in-demand skill set in IT market. RAID technology is becoming popular in storage industry and its environment because of the cost, performance and data integrity improvements that it provides. It combines physical drivers into a logical unit and present it in a single hard drives to the operating system.
This e-book has content for everyone, irrespective of expertise level, role and experience of an individual. It starts with brief introduction on different Storage Devices and Array to provide foundation to RAID concept and then proceed to address different RAID technologies and Levels with help of schematic flow diagrams.
This e-book is a small effort to provide some brief of different Data Backup and Replication methods, topologies and functional layout of these in a Storage Network. This e-book has content for everyone, irrespective of expertise level, role and experience of an individual. It starts with brief introduction on Data backup and restoration process and further provides detail on different possible topologies for same. Similarly, this book also provides details on different local and remote replication methods available and functional workflow of each.
Storage Area Network or SAN, provides a High-speed, dedication network of servers and shared storage devices. It provides easy management and scalable environment for data storage. Common SAN deployments are based on Fibre Channel technology using Fiber Channel protocol or IP based using IP-based protocols for communication. Fiber Channel or FC is a high-speed network technology usually running on an optical Fiber cables to meet demand for increased data transfer speed. FC-SAN as the name implies carries data between server and storage devices using Fiber Channel Network. This e-book provides brief overview on Fibre Channel Protocol, its architecture and implementation.
