84.The Unified Modeling Language User Guide, (2nd Edition)
UML 用户指南第二版

by Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh, Ivar Jacobson
• Hardcover: 426 pages
• Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 2 edition (May 19, 2005)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0321267974
• List Price: $59.99
Addison-Wesley Professional出版的《UML 用户指南第二版》。
One of the most important recent developments in software engineering is the Unified Modeling Language (UML) standard for documenting software designs. Written by UML's inventors (the so-called Three Amigos of software engineering), The Unified Modeling Language User Guide provides a very appealing guide to all the fundamentals of using UML effectively. The book opens with a basic tour of the essential concepts and modeling diagrams used in UML, including class diagrams, use case diagrams, and basic modeling principles. The authors pay close attention to modeling classes (and documenting the relationships between classes) as well as use case diagrams (which show how software will be used by various actors in a system). This book mixes in a little software-engineering theory, too, but it makes use of clear examples and actual UML diagrams to illustrate key concepts.
Later in the book, the authors discuss more difficult notational diagrams (such as state diagrams and activity diagrams, which can be used to model behavior in a system). Whatever your background in software engineering, you'll no doubt appreciate the author's clear explanations of basic (and advanced) modeling concepts, as well as the nuts-and-bolts details of today's powerful UML. With its combination of expert modeling advice and excellent detail on the specifics of UML, this book will be absolutely essential reading for anyone who wants to use UML for real-world software design. --Richard Dragan--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

82.2D Object Detection and Recognition: Models, Algorithms, and Networks

by Yali Amit
• Hardcover: 324 pages
• Publisher: The MIT Press (November 1, 2002)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0262011948
• List Price: $50.00
Book Description
Two important subproblems of computer vision are the detection and recognition of 2D objects in gray-level images. This book discusses the construction and training of models, computational approaches to efficient implementation, and parallel implementations in biologically plausible neural network architectures. The approach is based on statistical modeling and estimation, with an emphasis on simplicity, transparency, and computational efficiency.

The book describes a range of deformable template models, from coarse sparse models involving discrete, fast computations to more finely detailed models based on continuum formulations, involving intensive optimization. Each model is defined in terms of a subset of points on a reference grid (the template), a set of admissible instantiations of these points (deformations), and a statistical model for the data given a particular instantiation of the object present in the image. A recurring theme is a coarse to fine approach to the solution of vision problems. The book provides detailed descriptions of the algorithms used as well as the code, and the software and data sets are available on the Web.

Book Description
Software Evolution with UML and XML provides a forum where expert insights are presented on the subject of linking three current phenomena: software evolution, UML and XML. Software evolution and reengineering are a real problem in the software industry; various attempts have been made in these areas and there is still room for improvement. Tackling evolution with the help of UML and XML can be very beneficial to the software community, especially as the cost of software evolution makes up a considerable proportion, sometimes even 70-80%, of the total budget of a software system. Software Evolution with UML and XML not only investigates the potential powerful applications of two popularly used languages, UML and XML, in the field of software evolution, but also discovers what will happen when these three are linked to work together.

77.Information and Management Systems for Product Customization

by Thorsten Blecker, Gerhard Friedrich, Bernd Kaluza, Nizar Abdelkafi, Gerold Kreutler
• Hardcover: 269 pages
• Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (November 4, 2004)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0387233474
• List Price: $99.00
In today’s competitive environment, manufacturing and service companies are intensifying their customization processes. Customization means companies must meet the challenge of providing individualized products and services, without introducing high costs. Therefore, companies must address both customization and cost factors to gain a competitive advantage. While product customization is the manufacturing of products according to individual customer needs, it does not involve any focus on the cost perspective. INFORMATION AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR PRODUCT CUSTOMIZATION will concentrate on both product customization and costs’ efficiency, which is termed as mass customization. Moreover, mass customization with its multi-dimensions is the new business paradigm challenging today’s manufacturing companies. Understanding the needs and desires of the customer are central to the strategy of mass customization. However, introducing customer needs into the realm of product development dramatically increases the level of complexity of creating and delivering the product both internally and externally. This book introduces an innovative model that assesses and distinguishes subjective and objective customer needs. This model along with other software tools and AI agents address the complexity issues that are both external and internal in a mass customization strategy. Fundamentally, the book— with its technical analysis, models, conceptual frameworks, and managerial tools—closes the gap between the complexity and the difficulty of mass customization with its potential payoffs and implementation.

72.Network+ Study Guide, 4th Edition
Network+学习指南,第 4 版

by David Groth, Toby Skandier
• Paperback: 592 pages
• Publisher: Sybex Inc; 4th Bk&Cdr edition (April 14, 2005)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0782144063
• List Price: $49.99
The Network+ Study Guide explains all you need to know about computer networking to pass CompTIA's Network+ exam. The book covers the fundamentals of local area networks (LANs), the seven-layer Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) network model, and network operating systems (including NetWare, Windows NT, and to a lesser degree Unix variants). Readers will find considerable coverage of the TCP/IP protocol suite, including some of the utility programs used to configure it locally and remotely. There's also a lot of "softer" material about the duties of a network administrator, good troubleshooting practices, and the issues involved in network security. Organized to match CompTIA's stated objectives for the Network+ exam, this guide will prepare you for that test as well as Microsoft's Networking Essentials exam (70-058).
The presentation style is dense with prose, and tables are inserted where there are options or variations to memorize. More and larger conceptual diagrams would make this book better, since networking concepts are sometimes hard to grasp. There are quite a few stepped procedures though--most of them geared toward networked Windows machines. Each chapter concludes with a selection of multiple-choice review questions, the answers to which appear--without discussion, unfortunately--in an appendix. Additional questions appear in a drill program on the companion CD-ROM. --David Wall--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

54.Information Systems : Achieving Success by Avoiding Failure

by Joyce Fortune, Geoff Peters
• Paperback: 234 pages
• Publisher: Wiley (March 4, 2005)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0470862556
• List Price: $50.00
Despite people's best efforts information systems are particularly prone to failure. Some systems never materialize, others appear late and/or over budget and those that are implemented often fail to deliver the promised levels of performance. The consequences of these failures affect people throughout the organization concerned and beyond, sometimes to the point where they even threaten a company's future survival. They also damage the companies that develop and supply such systems. Worse still, the same types of problems occur again and again; even the most exhaustive methods are not able to ensure success.
This book aims to help all those people involved with information systems to break that repeating pattern of failure. Using real life examples it introduces a sophisticated approach based around the notion of system to come to grips with the causes of actual and potential failure. It presents a model of a system capable of action without failure that can be used as a yardstick to judge existing and planned information systems and suggest measures that need to be taken to achieve success.

Understand the business case for storage networks and lower your total cost of ownership with this comprehensive guide

Introduces the benefits of storage networks, providing a comprehensive business case for the adoption and deployment of storage networking solutions
Provides a complete overview of the TCO methodology for storage networks
Summarizes the EVA, NPV, and ROI metrics used to evaluate projects, ensuring their financial success
Outlines the best practices for executing a storage migration strategy
Includes a TCO calculator and decision-making checklist that you can use to assess your decision
When adopting a storage networking solution, you need to understand the business case for your decision. Yet this process is fraught with many business and technical considerations. How will the adoption of a storage networking solution affect your current infrastructure? How will your IT team grapple with the addition of a new technology? How can you turn the cost of your storage network into a business benefit, strengthening your bottom line and paving the way for future success?

Storage networking technologies promise a high return on investment (ROI) and have the potential to reduce the cost of corporate IT functions, which can result in significant savings. The increased efficiency associated with networked storage also promises a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for storage, and a lower, fully burdened cost of storage means greater long-term savings for large and small corporate datacenter environments. SAN technologies also offer increased business continuance capabilities for increased uptime and availability.

The Business Case for Storage Networks covers the problem of direct-attached storage (DAS) and the solutions offered by storage area networks. It details the experiences of IT decision makers and implementers who have deployed SAN solutions to address the formidable problems facing their companies, which are now overwhelmed with expensive, inefficient, and difficult-to-manage DAS solutions. The Business Case for Storage Networks addresses the problems of storage growth and increased consumption, the role of the IT department as a cost center, and how SAN technologies can help save money in the long run, helping you make an informed decision about your storage networking investment.

This volume is in the Network Business Series offered by Cisco Press. Books in this series provide IT executives, decision makers, and networking professionals with pertinent information on today's most important technologies and business strategies.

I have always truly believed that the Internet and education are the two great equalizers in life, and this book provides information about how to combine the two for productivity and profitability gains, based on real successes.
-John Chambers, President and CEO of Cisco Systems

The Business Case for E-Learning is the first book that demonstrates the productivity gains provided by Internet learning through a unique approach combining e-communication, e-training, and e-assessment. Beyond theory, The Business Case for E-Learning is based on practical experience in developing and deploying programs that bolster profitability. This book offers you practical recommendations for best practices and return on investment and provides lessons learned from real-world experiences.

The Business Case for E-Learning presents several case studies that range from the challenges of learning in Africa to the emergence of corporate knowledge-sharing communities. Case studies on Toyota, BearingPoint, Element K, and other e-learning leaders demonstrate how e-learning best practices can yield value for any organization. One case study quantifies how Cisco Systems in one year generated $16 in value for every dollar spent on an e-learning program.

Managers need to prove to companies that an e-learning program can result in demonstrable productivity gains. Through The Business Case for E-Learning, you learn to avoid unnecessary trial and error with e-learning and take advantage of the e-learning experience documented by authors Tom Kelly and Nader Nanjiani.

Understand how network-based VPNs operate and how to integrate IPSec VPNs with MPLS VPNs
Among the many functions that networking technologies permit is the ability for organizations to easily and securely communicate with branch offices, mobile users, telecommuters, and business partners. Such connectivity is now vital to maintaining a competitive level of business productivity. Although several technologies exist that can enable interconnectivity among business sites, Internet-based virtual private networks (VPNs) have evolved as the most effective means to link corporate network resources to remote employees, offices, and mobile workers. VPNs provide productivity enhancements, efficient and convenient remote access to network resources, site-to-site connectivity, a high level of security, and tremendous cost savings.

IPSec VPN Design is the first book to present a detailed examination of the design aspects of IPSec protocols that enable secure VPN communication. Divided into three parts, the book provides a solid understanding of design and architectural issues of large-scale, secure VPN solutions. Part I includes a comprehensive introduction to the general architecture of IPSec, including its protocols and Cisco IOS® IPSec implementation details. Part II examines IPSec VPN design principles covering hub-and-spoke, full-mesh, and fault-tolerant designs. This part of the book also covers dynamic configuration models used to simplify IPSec VPN designs. Part III addresses design issues in adding services to an IPSec VPN such as voice and multicast. This part of the book also shows you how to effectively integrate IPSec VPNs with MPLS VPNs.

IPSec VPN Design provides you with the field-tested design and configuration advice to help you deploy an effective and secure VPN solution in any environment.

Design and deploy high availability IP and MPLS network architectures with this comprehensive guide

Includes a detailed overview of the IP/MPLS forwarding and control plane protocols, including OSPF, IS-IS, LDP, BGP, and RSVP
Analyze fault-tolerant IP/MPLS control plane architectures with the explanations in this book
Develop a clear understanding of various high availability aspects of IP/MPLS networks
Learn how to seamlessly deploy IP/MPLS control plane restart mechanisms
Master the application of fault-tolerant control-plane architectures in designing and deploying highly reliable and available MPLS applications, such as traffic engineering, L2VPNs, and L3VPNs
Understand the layered architecture of network-level fault recovery mechanisms, such as optical, SONET, MPLS, and interactions between different layers
In the wake of increased traffic, today's service providers and enterprises must assure high availability across a variety of networked services and applications. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is the enabling technology for the widespread deployment of IP networks in core and Metro Ethernet applications. Many service providers need to move their legacy Layer 2 and Layer 3 services onto converged MPLS and IP-enabled networks, but high availability is a prerequisite for offering profitable carrier-class services. Although most carrier-class routers do provide an adequate level of hardware redundancy, control-plane software is still vulnerable to and, in many cases, the cause of router failures.

Fault-Tolerant IP and MPLS Networks provides you with an in-depth analysis of the mechanisms that improve the reliability and availability of IP and MPLS control plane components. The IP/MPLS control-plane architecture and all its restart mechanisms are explained with examples and deployment considerations.

This explanation of IP/MPLS control-plane architecture begins with a service view of the network, moves on to the node-level view by partitioning the network into its constituent network elements, and then advances to the component-level view to explore various techniques that can be used to improve the reliability and availability of each component. The top-down and example-oriented approach facilitates a solid understanding of the constituent components before moving on to more advanced MPLS applications involving multiple components.

Fault-Tolerant IP and MPLS Networks is your practical guide for understanding, designing, and deploying carrier class IP/MPLS networks.

This book is part of the Networking Technology Series from Cisco Press‚ which offers networking professionals valuable information for constructing efficient networks, understanding new technologies, and building successful careers.

46.Getting the Message: A History of Communications

by Laszlo Solymar, L. Solymar
• Hardcover: 311 pages
• Publisher: Oxford University Press (November 1, 1999)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 0198503334
• List Price: $44.50
Getting The Message: A History of Communications is a strange book. Is it a gift for someone's coffee table, a textbook, or serious history? Laszlo Solymar's quirky commentary mixes colorful character studies with social criticism, technical explanation with personal prejudice. It starts with fire signals and ends with Internet firewalls. He tells us that he would join a Campaign for Curbing the Spread of Acronyms. He regrets that e-mail means you get contacted by forgotten acquaintances sending you details about their offspring. He points out that Dudayev, the Chechen rebel leader, was blown to smithereens because he was too fond of his mobile phone, and all this is mixed in with explanations of "The principles of a triode amplifier."
The narrative in this book is brisk, and there are an amazing number of illustrations and cartoons, which make Solymar's points perfectly. For example, a prescient "Punch" cartoon from 1879 shows two people videoconferencing, and there's a picture of an eavesdropping device used by Alexander the Great.

Solymar, an Oxford professor of engineering, mentions his debt to his fellow dons in the dedication. The exchange of academic ideas has enriched his text. His mind reaches beyond the scientific: he seems perfectly at ease as a historian describing how, during the Russian Revolution, Kerensky and Kornilov had to communicate using the telegraph. Had Russia been less backward, they would have used the telephone. Had they been even more backward, they would have met in person. But they used the telegraph, misunderstood each other, and thus set in motion the October Revolution.

This book sets out to be technical, polemical, historical, analytical, and readable. With the exception of a few longueurs, the author, through his breadth of reference and determination to be accessible, has succeeded. --Brian Jenner, amazon.co.uk

• Paperback: 326 pages
• Publisher: Delmar Thomson Learning (January 28, 2005)
• Language: English
• ISBN: 1584503084
• List Price: $49.95
Today’s game audiences expect Hollywood-quality cinematography. But to produce this quality in games, programmers need to understand the traditional film principles of lighting, camera positioning, and motion. Unlike movies, games provide non-linear, interactive storytelling, so to use film and T.V. techniques effectively, the techniques need to be modified for games.
Real-Time Cinematography for Games provides this translation by teaching programmers and artists how to incorporate tried-and-true filmmaking techniques into their games. Beginning with an overview of filmmaking and cinematography basics, the book teaches how to tell a compelling story using camera placement based on character and environment. It explains how to handle a camera for panning, zooming, and cradle movement, and it details how to program these techniques into your games through code examples. From there, camera lenses and methods for achieving a variety of effects with software cameras are explored. Hands-on examples illustrate the importance of good lighting and how to handle transitions to new lighting arrangements. The next part of the book covers the essential areas of filters, sound effects, interactive music, movement, and dialog, including coverage of current voice recognition technology. The book wraps up with coverage of directing essentials.
Programmers will find the entire book extremely useful, and designers and artists will find the large amount of creative uses of filmmaking techniques invaluable. Every chapter is written with two major parts: creative and technical. The creative section looks into the techniques and practices of the film industry and teaches how artists and designers can use these techniques in games. The technical sections then explain how to implement these techniques into games through practical code and equations. The technical sections require knowledge of basic programming and computer graphics concepts. This is the one resource programmers and designers need to ensure that they are producing Hollywood-quality graphics that will keep your players coming back for more!

Cisco出版的电子书《端对端QoS网络设计 : LAN, WAN, 及VPN中的服务质量》。
Best-practice QoS designs for protecting voice, video, and critical data while mitigating network denial-of-service attacks

Understand the service-level requirements of voice, video, and data applications
Examine strategic QoS best practices, including Scavenger-class QoS tactics for DoS/worm mitigation
Learn about QoS tools and the various interdependencies and caveats of these tools that can impact design considerations
Learn how to protect voice, video, and data traffic using various QoS mechanisms
Evaluate design recommendations for protecting voice, video, and multiple classes of data while mitigating DoS/worm attacks for the following network infrastructure architectures: campus LAN, private WAN, MPLS VPN, and IPSec VPN
Quality of Service (QoS) has already proven itself as the enabling technology for the convergence of voice, video, and data networks. As business needs evolve, so do the demands for QoS. The need to protect critical applications via QoS mechanisms in business networks has escalated over the past few years, primarily due to the increased frequency and sophistication of denial-of-service (DoS) and worm attacks.

End-to-End QoS Network Design is a detailed handbook for planning and deploying QoS solutions to address current business needs. This book goes beyond discussing available QoS technologies and considers detailed design examples that illustrate where, when, and how to deploy various QoS features to provide validated and tested solutions for voice, video, and critical data over the LAN, WAN, and VPN.

The book starts with a brief background of network infrastructure evolution and the subsequent need for QoS. It then goes on to cover the various QoS features and tools currently available and comments on their evolution and direction. The QoS requirements of voice, interactive and streaming video, and multiple classes of data applications are presented, along with an overview of the nature and effects of various types of DoS and worm attacks. QoS best-practice design principles are introduced to show how QoS mechanisms can be strategically deployed end-to-end to address application requirements while mitigating network attacks. The next section focuses on how these strategic design principles are applied to campus LAN QoS design. Considerations and detailed design recommendations specific to the access, distribution, and core layers of an enterprise campus network are presented. Private WAN QoS design is discussed in the following section, where WAN-specific considerations and detailed QoS designs are presented for leased-lines, Frame Relay, ATM, ATM-to-FR Service Interworking, and ISDN networks. Branch-specific designs include Cisco® SAFE recommendations for using Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR) for known-worm identification and policing. The final section covers Layer 3 VPN QoS design-for both MPLS and IPSec VPNs. As businesses are migrating to VPNs to meet their wide-area networking needs at lower costs, considerations specific to these topologies are required to be reflected in their customer-edge QoS designs. MPLS VPN QoS design is examined from both the enterprise and service provider's perspectives. Additionally, IPSec VPN QoS designs cover site-to-site and teleworker contexts.

Whether you are looking for an introduction to QoS principles and practices or a QoS planning and deployment guide, this book provides you with the expert advice you need to design and implement comprehensive QoS solutions.

Field-proven MPLS designs covering MPLS VPNs, pseudowire, QoS, traffic engineering, IPv6, network recovery, and multicast

Understand technology applications in various service provider and enterprise topologies via detailed design studies
Benefit from the authors’ vast experience in MPLS network deployment and protocol design
Visualize real-world solutions through clear, detailed illustrations
Design studies cover various operator profiles including an interexchange carrier (IXC), a national telco deploying a multiservice backbone carrying Internet and IP VPN services as well as national telephony traffic, an international service provider with many POPs all around the globe, and a large enterprise relying on Layer-3 VPN services to control communications within and across subsidiaries
Design studies are thoroughly explained through detailed text, sample configurations, and network diagrams
Definitive MPLS Network Designs provides examples of how to combine key technologies at the heart of IP/MPLS networks. Techniques are presented through a set of comprehensive design studies. Each design study is based on characteristics and objectives common to a given profile of network operators having deployed MPLS and discusses all the corresponding design aspects.
The book starts with a technology refresher for each of the technologies involved in the design studies. Next, a series of design studies is presented, each based on a specific hypothetical network representative of service provider and enterprise networks running MPLS. Each design study chapter delivers four elements. They open with a description of the network environment, including the set of supported services, the network topology, the POP structure, the transmission facilities, the basic IP routing design, and possible constraints. Then the chapters present design objectives, such as optimizing bandwidth usage. Following these are details of all aspects of the network design, covering VPN, QoS, TE, network recovery, and—where applicable—multicast, IPv6, and pseudowire. The chapters conclude with a summary of the lessons that can be drawn from the design study so that all types of service providers and large enterprise MPLS architects can adapt aspects of the design solution to their unique network environment and objectives.
Although network architects have many resources for seeking information on the concepts and protocols involved with MPLS, there is no single resource that illustrates how to design a network that optimizes their benefits for a specific operating environment. The variety of network environments and requirements makes it difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all design recommendation. Definitive MPLS Network Designs fills this void.
“This book comes as a boon to professionals who want to understand the power of MPLS and make full use of it.”

The historical disconnect between legacy Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN solutions has forced service providers to build, operate, and maintain separate infrastructures to accommodate various VPN access technologies. This costly proposition, however, is no longer necessary. As part of its new Unified VPN Suite, Cisco Systems® now offers next-generation Layer 2 VPN services like Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol version 3 (L2TPv3) and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) that enable service providers to offer Frame Relay, ATM, Ethernet, and leased-line services over a common IP/MPLS core network. By unifying multiple network layers and providing an integrated set of software services and management tools over this infrastructure, the Cisco® Layer 2 VPN solution enables established carriers, IP-oriented ISP/CLECs, and large enterprise customers (LECs) to reach a broader set of potential VPN customers and offer truly global VPNs.

Layer 2 VPN Architectures is a comprehensive guide to consolidating network infrastruc-tures and extending VPN services. The book opens by discussing Layer 2 VPN applications utilizing both AToM and L2TPv3 protocols and comparing Layer 3 versus Layer 2 provider-provisioned VPNs. In addition to describing the concepts related to Layer 2 VPNs, this book provides an extensive collection of case studies that show you how these technologies and architectures work. The case studies include both AToM and L2TPv3 and reveal real-world service provider and enterprise design problems and solutions with hands-on configuration examples and implementation details. The case studies include all Layer 2 technologies transported using AToM and L2TPv3 pseudowires, including Ethernet, Ethernet VLAN, HDLC, PPP, Frame Relay, ATM AAL5 and ATM cells, and advanced topics relevant to Layer 2 VPN deployment, such as QoS and scalability.
Layer 2 VPN Architectures is your practical guide to understanding, designing, and deploying Layer 2 VPNs.

1.Cisco Security Agent

by Chad Sullivan
Paperback: 456 pages
Publisher: Cisco Press (June 1, 2005)
Language: English
ISBN: 1587052059
List Price: $60.00

Prevent security breaches by protecting endpoint systems with Cisco Security Agent, the Cisco host Intrusion Prevention System
• Secure your endpoint systems with host IPS
• Build and manipulate policies for the systems you wish to protect
• Learn how to use groups and hosts in the Cisco Security Agent architecture and how the components are related
• Install local agent components on various operating systems
• Explore the event database on the management system to view and filter information
• Examine Cisco Security Agent reporting mechanisms for monitoring system activity
• Apply Application Deployment Investigation to report on installed applications, hotfixes, and service packs
• Collect detailed information on processes and see how they use and are used by system resources
• Create and tune policies to control your environment without impacting usability
• Learn how to maintain the Cisco Security Agent architecture, including administrative access roles and backups
Cisco Security Agent presents a detailed explanation of Cisco Security Agent, illustrating the use of host Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) in modern self-defending network protection schemes. At the endpoint, the deployment of a host IPS provides protection against both worms and viruses. Rather than focusing exclusively on reconnaissance phases of network attacks a host IPS approaches the problem from the other direction, preventing malicious activity on the host by focusing on behavior. By changing the focus to behavior, damaging activity can be detected and blocked–regardless of the attack.

Cisco Security Agent is an innovative product in that it secures the portion of corporate networks that are in the greatest need of protection–the end systems. It also has the ability to prevent a day-zero attack, which is a worm that spreads from system to system, taking advantage of vulnerabilities in networks where either the latest patches have not been installed or for which patches are not yet available. Cisco Security Agent utilizes a unique architecture that correlates behavior occurring on the end systems by monitoring clues such as file and memory access, process behavior, COM object access, and access to shared libraries as well as other important indicators.

Cisco Security Agent is the first book to explore the features and benefits of this powerful host IPS product. Divided into seven parts, the book provides a detailed overview of Cisco Security Agent features and deployment scenarios. Part I covers the importance of endpoint security. Part II examines the basic components of the Cisco Security Agent architecture. Part III addresses agent installation and local use. Part IV discusses the Cisco Security Agent management console’s reporting and monitoring capabilities. Part V covers advanced Cisco Security Agent analysis features. Part VI covers Cisco Security Agent policy, implementation, and management. Part VII presents additional installation and management information.

Whether you are evaluating host IPS in general or looking for a detailed deployment guide for Cisco Security Agent, this book will help you lock down your endpoint systems and prevent future attacks.

“While there are still a lot of ways that security can go wrong, Cisco Security Agent provides a defense even when something is wrong. I remember the email that came around from our system administrator that said, ‘There’s something attacking our web server. We’re not sure what it is, but Stormwatch is blocking it.’ That was the Nimda worm–the first of a long line of attacks stopped by Cisco Security Agent.”
–Ted Doty, Product Manager, Security Technology Group, Cisco Systems®

This security book is part of the Cisco Press® Networking Technology Series. Security titles from Cisco Press help networking professionals secure critical data and resources, prevent and mitigate network attacks, and build end-to-end self-defending networks.
