What if you could sit down with some of the most talented security engineers in the world and ask any network security question you wanted? Security Power Tools lets you do exactly that! Members of Juniper Networks' Security Engineering team and a few guest experts reveal how to use, tweak, and push the most popular network security applications, utilities, and tools available using Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Unix platforms.
Designed to be browsed, Security Power Tools offers.
This book puts you in charge of the most flexible and adaptable graphical interface in the computer industry. The X Window System underlies graphical desktops on Linux and Unix systems, and supports advanced features of modern graphics cards. More people use the X Window System than ever before, but there are few books about X in print. X Power Tools fills that hole with the most practical and up-to-date information available.
The first three books in my Open Source Security series covered Nessus,
Snort, and Ethereal.The authors and I worked hard to make these books useful
to complete beginners, enterprise-scaled users, and even programmers who
were looking to enhance these tools. Giving programmers the capability to add
components to each tool was one focus of several. For example, I dissected a
preprocessor in the Snort 2.0 and 2.1 books and explained how you might
build another.To do that, I had to learn Snort’s inner workings by reading
much of the code.
The name ‘power tool’ originally describes a tool that is powered by an electrical motor. Thus, the effort needed by an operator is reduced through using this tool. Today the term ‘power tool’ or ‘cordless tool’, as it is also called sometimes, is most commonly used for an electric tool, which is powered by batteries. This makes the user independent of power outlets. Power tools include drills and screwdrivers as well as hammers, saws, grinders, etc. They replace their electric power grid– connected equivalents.
Power electronics is the technology of processing and controlling the flow of electric energy
by supplying voltages and currents in a form that is optimally suited to the end-user’s
requirements .Atypical block diagram is given in Figure 1.1 . The input power can be
either AC and DC sources. A general example is one in which the AC input power is from
the electric utility. The output power to the load can be either AC and DC voltages. The
power processor in the block diagram is usually called a converter. Conversion technologies
are used to construct converters.
10 ways to tap into your creative genius Did you know the number of ideas it is possible for your brain to create is greater than the number of atoms in the known universe? Creativity is not just painting a picture or playing an instrument - it can be part of every decision you take! This book is full of fun games and tools to help you make the most of your own creativity. When you are creative, you are full of energy, enthusiasm, and ideas. Using the famous Mind Map techniques that he invented, Tony Buzan shows you how...
Power flow solutions are needed in both for planning and operation studies.
Power flow studies for three phases balanced power system can be carried out using
very efficient methods. Power flow analysis for certain type of power system
network can be carried on by using several software that already been develop
without manual calculation on this time. One of the software is MATLAB with its
toolbox: Power System Analysis Toolbox. This software also uses numerical
methods to do power flow analysis like Newton-Raphson and its modified form, Fast
PSAT is a Matlab toolbox for static and dynamic analysis and control of electric power systems. The PSAT project began in September 2001, while I was a Ph.D. candidate at the Universit´ degli Studi di Genova, Italy. The ﬁrst public a version date back to November 2002, when I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Waterloo, Canada. I am currently maintaining PSAT in the spare time, while I am working as associate professor at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Ciudad Real, Spain. PSAT is provided free of charge, in the hope it can be useful and other people...
Linux Server Hacks is a collection of 100 industrial-strength hacks, providing tips and tools that solve practical problems for Linux system administrators. Every hack can be read in just a few minutes but will save hours of searching for the right answer. Some of the hacks are subtle, many of them are non-obvious, and all of them demonstrate the power and flexibility of a Linux system. You'll find hacks devoted to tuning the Linux kernel to make your system run more efficiently, as well as using CVS or RCS to track the revision to system files....
Electrical consumption, especially direct or variable frequency currents, has
strongly increased over 50 years in industry. This situation explains the growth of
At the beginning, when rectifiers replaced DC machines, only diodes and
thyristors were used. Then power transistors appeared and enabled the extension of
smaller power applications for domestic use. New research topics were developed
around converters and power devices.
Google and YouTube use Python because it's highly adaptable, easy to maintain, and allows for rapid development. If you want to write high-quality, efficient code that's easily integrated with other languages and tools, this hands-on book will help you be productive with Python quickly -- whether you're new to programming or just new to Python. It's an easy-to-follow self-paced tutorial, based on author and Python expert Mark Lutz's popular training course.
This book has been designed to give plant operators, electricians, field technicians and engineers a
better appreciation of the role played by power system protection systems. An understanding of power
systems along with correct management, will increase your plant efficiency and performance as well
as increasing safety for all concerned. The book is designed to provide an excellent understanding on
both theoretical and practical level.
The growing interest in the application of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to
power system engineering has introduced the potentials of using this state-of-the-art
technology. AI techniques, unlike strict mathematical methods, have the apparent
ability to adapt to nonlinearities and discontinuities commonly found in power
systems. The best-known algorithms in this class include evolution programming,
genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search, and neural networks.
In the last three decades many papers on these applications have been published.

Open source software is such an integral part of the Internet that is it safe to say that the
Internet wouldn’t exist as we know it today without it. The Internet never would have
grown as fast and as dynamically as it did without open source programs such as BIND,
which controls the domain name system; Sendmail, which powers most e-mail servers;
INN, which runs many news servers; Major Domo, which runs many of the thousands of
mailing lists on the Internet; and of course the popular Apache Web server. One thing for
sure is that the Internet is a lot cheaper due to open source...
At $13 billion and roughly five percent of the total semiconductor market (2004
data) the power semiconductor market is big and growing fast, typically outgrowing
the rest of the semiconductor market.
Modern electronic appliances, while exhibiting increasing functionality, are
also expected to consume little power, for reasons of portability, thermal performance,
and environmental considerations.
Working through Screens is a reference for product teams creating new or iteratively improved applications for thinking work. Written for use during early, formative conversations, it provides teams with a broad range of considerations for setting the overall direction and priorities for their onscreen tools.
