“Andrew Blum plunges into the unseen but real ether of the Internet in a journey both compelling and profound….You will never open an email in quite the same way again.”
—Tom Vanderbilt, New York Times bestselling author of Traffic

In Tubes, Andrew Blum, a correspondent at Wired magazine, takes us on an engaging, utterly fascinating tour behind the scenes of our everyday lives and reveals the dark beating heart of the Internet itself. A remarkable journey through the brave new technological world we live in, Tubes is to the early twenty-first century what Soul of a New Machine—Tracy Kidder’s classic story of the creation of a new computer—was to the late twentieth.

Internet Congestion Control provides a description of some of the most important topics in the area of congestion control in computer networks, with special emphasis on the analytical modeling of congestion control algorithms.

The field of congestion control has seen many notable advances in recent years and the purpose of this book, which is targeted towards the advanced and intermediate reader, is to inform about the most important developments in this area. The book should enable the reader to gain a good understanding of the application of congestion control theory to a number of application domains such as Data Center Networks, Video Streaming, High Speed Links and Broadband Wireless Networks. When seen through the lens of analytical modeling, there are a number of common threads that run through the design and analysis of congestion control protocols in all these different areas, which are emphasized in this book. The book also cuts a path through the profusion of algorithms in the literature, and puts the topic on a systematic and logical footing.

If you've ever been responsible for a network, you know that sinking feeling: your pager has gone off at 2 a.m., the network is broken, and you can't figure out why by using a dial-in connection from home. You drive into the office, dig out your protocol analyzer, and spend the next fourhours trying to put things back together before the staff shows up for work.

When this happens, you often find yourself looking at the low-level guts of the Internet protocols: you're deciphering individual packets, trying to figure out what is (or isn't) happening. Until now, the only real guide to the protocols has been the Internet RFCs–and they're hardlywhat you want to be reading late at night when your network is down. There hasn't been a good book on the fundamentals of IP networking aimed at network administrators–until now.

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Computer Science – IT-Security, , language: English, abstract: In a nutshell what the researcher hopes to achieve by this project is to develop a practical solution to control Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks launched using BitTorrent protocol by tweaking the source code of an existing open source BitTorrent client. Even though BitTorrent is a useful protocol, it could be misused to launch DDoS attacks. Since the number who uses BitTorrent protocol is high, by launching a DDoS the victim's machine could be crippled. Hence as a remedy to the issue this report is formulated so that it discusses how the attacks are done and how it could be prevented. For a simple analogical demonstration of what this attack does, take a look at figure 1 where computer A cannot fulfill the requests of a legit user computer B. this is what DDoS attack does. After enhancing the security architecture of BitTorrent client this problem would not occur hence it is improved to control these attacks.
