Understanding Internet Protocols Through Hands-On Programming
J. Mark Pullen"The only learn-by-doing book on Internet protocols - highly recommended." - Scott Bradner, IETF Transport Area Director
Companies worldwide are scrambling to migrate their networks to an Internet/intranet configuration. As a result, the demand for technical professionals who understand how Internet protocols work has never been greater. Written by Dr. Mark Pullen, recipient of the IEEE Harry Diamond Memorial Award for his work in networking for distributed simulation, this book/CD package focuses on detailed explanations and exercises to develop knowledge of Internet protocols.
Each chapter describes an important protocol by introducing its technology context and explaining its principal algorithm(s). Then a series of hands-on projects are presented where you’ll actually program the central algorithms in C and test them using the
Network Workbench software created by Dr. Pullen. As you complete each project, you’ll acquire a deeper understanding of how Internet protocols work. As a result, you will understand how and why the Internet works – knowledge that is in hot demand!
Key topics covered in this book include:
The CD-ROM contains: Network Workbench, a program that replicates Internet protocol behavior and lets you practice Internet simulation one step at a time. It runs on Windows, Sun Unix, or Linux. As a bonus, it contains lecture slides from Dr. Pullen’s introductory networking course!
J. MARK PULLEN, PhD, heads the Networking and Simulation Laboratory at George Mason Universitys Center of Excellence in Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence. Dr. Pullen is known for his work at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) where he led the effort for worldwide Internet connectivity and his current IETF work where he developed the first simulation models for Quality of Service Internet routing.
