–Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer

TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a complete, detailed, and visual guide to today's TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There's no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks.

Starting from the late W. Richard Stevens' classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP's core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP's structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols–such as Ethernet and WiFi–through network, transport, and application layers.

Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMP/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, congestion control, and keepalive. Finally, he illuminates crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM.

Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks.

This is the eBook version of the printed book. One of the most exciting and talked about aspects of the HTML5 specification is the introduction of in-browser multimedia. Websites no longer have to rely on a third-party tool such as Flash or Silverlight to play video and audio. This book is an easy, approachable guide to building native HTML5 multimedia into a website, from the simplest addition to more advanced features. It's written in a simple, straightforward style that's not too techy, yet advanced enough for the more experienced coder who just needs to get up to speed on these powerful new capabilities. The book's companion website provides all the examples in a working format for easy access and enhanced visualization for the reader.

Topics include:

  • Using Audio: How to add audio to web documents using the HTML5 audio element.
  • Using Video: How to add video to web documents using the HTML5 video element.
  • JavaScript API and Custom Controls: How to use the HTML5 Media JavaScript API to create custom controls for HTML5 audio and video.
