Focused on fundamental concepts and practical applications, this book provides a strong foundation in the principles and terminology of computer networking and internet technology. This thoroughly revised second edition, incorporating some of the latest technical features in networking, is suitable for introductory one-semester courses for undergraduate students of computer science and engineering, electronics and telecommunication engineering, information technology, as well as students of computer applications (BCA and MCA). This text begins with an overview of computer networking and a discussion on data communication. Then it proceeds to explain how computer networks such as local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs) work, and how internetworking is implemented. Besides, the book provides a description of the Internet and TCP/IP protocol. With the prolific growth of networking, ‘network management and security’ has become an increa-singly important part of the academic curriculum. This topic has been ade-quately dealt with in a separate chapter. The practical aspects of networking, listing the essential requirements needed for actually setting up a computer network, are thoroughly explained in the final chapter of the book. WHAT IS NEW IN THE SECOND EDITION • Wireless LAN in Chapter 4 • API and Socket Programming and End-to-End Protocol in Chapter 7 • Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Protocol in Chapter 8 • Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol –Error reporting by ICMP –Virtual Private Network (VPN) in Chapter 9 –Network Address Translation (NAT) An appendix dealing with telephone networking, wireless networking, cellular networking and satellite and telemetry communication has been included to meet the requirements of the students.

This fully revised and updated book, now in its Fourth Edition, continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of data communications and computer networks in an easy to understand style. The text places as much emphasis on the application of the concepts as on the concepts themselves. While the theoretical part is intended to offer a solid foundation of the basics so as to equip the student for further study, the stress on the applications is meant to acquaint the student with the realistic status of data communications and computer networks as of now. Audience Intended primarily as a textbook for the students of computer science and engineering, electronics and communication engineering, master of computer applications (MCA), and those offering IT courses, this book would also be useful for practising professionals. NEW TO THIS EDITION • Three new chapters on: o Network Architecture and OSI Model o Wireless Communication Technologies o Web Security • Appendix on Binary and Hexadecimal Numbering Key features • Illustrates the application of the principles through highly simplified block diagrams. • Contains a comprehensive glossary which gives simple and accurate descriptions of various terms. • Provides Questions and Answers at the end of the book which facilitate quick revision of the concept.

This handbook introduces the basic principles and fundamentals of cyber security towards establishing an understanding of how to protect computers from hackers and adversaries. The highly informative subject matter of this handbook, includes various concepts, models, and terminologies along with examples and illustrations to demonstrate substantial technical details of the field. It motivates the readers to exercise better protection and defense mechanisms to deal with attackers and mitigate the situation. This handbook also outlines some of the exciting areas of future research where the existing approaches can be implemented. Exponential increase in the use of computers as a means of storing and retrieving security-intensive information, requires placement of adequate security measures to safeguard the entire computing and communication scenario. With the advent of Internet and its underlying technologies, information security aspects are becoming a prime concern towards protecting the networks and the cyber ecosystem from variety of threats, which is illustrated in this handbook. This handbook primarily targets professionals in security, privacy and trust to use and improve the reliability of businesses in a distributed manner, as well as computer scientists and software developers, who are seeking to carry out research and develop software in information and cyber security. Researchers and advanced-level students in computer science will also benefit from this reference.

This thesis focuses on the design and analysis of interprocess communication protocols for networks of computers. Previous research has emphasized system performance at lower levels, within the communication medium itself. This work examines requirements and performance of protocols for communication between processes in the Host computers attached to the communication system. Both the reliability and the efficiency of protocols are discussed. Reliability involves overcoming unreliable network transmission facilities to avoid loss, duplication, or out-of-order delivery of data. Reliability performance goals are defined, and the correctness of different protocol mechanisms in achieving these goals is demonstrated. Consequences of protocol failures (Host crashes) and problems of initializing control mechanisms required for reliable communication are also considered.

Request a FREE 30-day online trial to this title at www.sagepub.com/freetrial This two-volume encyclopedia provides a thorough introduction to the wide-ranging, fast-developing field of social networking, a much-needed resource at a time when new social networks or "communities" seem to spring up on the internet every day. Social networks, or groupings of individuals tied by one or more specific types of interests or interdependencies ranging from likes and dislikes, or disease transmission to the "old boy" network or overlapping circles of friends, have been in existence for longer than services such as Facebook or YouTube; analysis of these networks emphasizes the relationships within the network . This reference resource offers comprehensive coverage of the theory and research within the social sciences that has sprung from the analysis of such groupings, with accompanying definitions, measures, and research. Featuring approximately 350 signed entries, along with approximately 40 media clips, organized alphabetically and offering cross-references and suggestions for further readings, this encyclopedia opens with a thematic Reader's Guide in the front that groups related entries by topics. A Chronology offers the reader historical perspective on the study of social networks. This two-volume reference work is a must-have resource for libraries serving researchers interested in the various fields related to social networks.

Appropriate for introductory computer networking courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, CIS, MIS, and Business Departments.Written by a best-selling author and leading computer networking authority, Computer Networks and Internets, Third Edition builds a comprehensive picture of the technologies behind Internet applications. Ideal for those with little or no background in the subject, the text answers the basic question "how do computer networks and Internets operate?" in the broadest sense and now includes an early optional introduction to network programming and applications. The text provides a comprehensive, self-contained tour through all of networking from the lowest levels of data transmission and wiring to the highest levels of application software, explaining how underlying technologies provide services and how Internet applications use those services. At each level, it shows how the facilities and services provided by lower levels are used and extended in the next level. For instructors who want to emphasize Internet technologies and applications, the book provides substantial sections on Internetworking and Network Applications that can serve as a focus for a course. An accompanying multimedia CD-ROM and Website provide opportunities for a variety of hands-on experiences.
