As open source software becomes a trusted part of business and research systems, it′s no wonder that a combination of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and the Linux operating system is becoming more common. TCP/IP′s prevalence allows easy communication among computers using various operating systems, whether Windows, Mac OS, Linux, or Unix. And Linux because it is open source and thus modifiable has become a frequent choice for developers who want a customizable operating system on which to build their applications.
This book describes the design and implementation of TCP/IP in Linux, from simple client–server applications to more complex executions. Topical coverage includes:
Basic socket concepts and implementations
The Linux implementation of network packets
TCP algorithms for data transmission and congestion control
IP layer and routing tables implementation
IP forwarding and quality of service implementation
Netfilter hooks for the stacks
Network Soft IRQ
How to debug a TCP/IP stack
All topics are discussed in a concise, step–by–step manner and the book is complemented with helpful illustrations to give readers a better understanding of the subject. TCP/IP Architecture, Design, and Implementation in Linux is an indispensable resource for embedded–network product developers, network security product developers, IT network architects, researchers, and graduate students.
