**March 2019 edition.**<br /><br />Every page, and every example, updated to the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud-native ecosystem.<br /><br />Containers are revolutionizing the way build, ship and run our applications. But like all good things, they come with their own set of challenges. This is where Kubernetes enters the scene.<br /><br />Kubernetes helps you deploy and manage containerized applications at scale. It also abstracts the many different underlying cloud platforms so that you don't need to care whether you're deploying on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or your own on-premises datacenter. With Kubernetes, you can develop your applications on your laptop, deploy to your chosen cloud platform, migrate to a different cloud platform, and even migrate to your private cloud at your on-premises datacenter.<br /><br />The Kubernetes Book starts from the beginning and covers everything you need to know to be proficient with Kubernetes. It even includes two chapters dedicated to threat-modeling Kubernetes and real-world security. <br /><br />You'll learn:<br /><br />- Kubernetes cluster architecture<br />- How to build Kubernetes Clusters<br />- How to deploy and manage applications on Kubernetes<br />- How to secure Kubernetes<br />- The meaning of terms like cloud-native, microservices, desired state, containerized, and more...<br /><br />Finally, Kubernetes and cloud technologies are developing fast! That's why this book will be updated at least once per year, meaning it's always up-to-date with the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud-native ecosystem.

<b>This practical, tutorial-style book uses the Kali Linux distribution to teach Linux basics with a focus on how hackers would use them. Topics include Linux command line basics, filesystems, networking, BASH basics, package management, logging, and the Linux kernel and drivers.</b><br /><br />If you're getting started along the exciting path of hacking, cybersecurity, and pentesting, <i>Linux Basics for Hackers</i> is an excellent first step. Using Kali Linux, an advanced penetration testing distribution of Linux, you'll learn the basics of using the Linux operating system and acquire the tools and techniques you'll need to take control of a Linux environment.<br /><br />First, you'll learn how to install Kali on a virtual machine and get an introduction to basic Linux concepts. Next, you'll tackle broader Linux topics like manipulating text, controlling file and directory permissions, and managing user environment variables. You'll then focus in on foundational hacking concepts like security and anonymity and learn scripting skills with bash and Python. Practical tutorials and exercises throughout will reinforce and test your skills as you learn how to:<br /><br />- Cover your tracks by changing your network information and manipulating the rsyslog logging utility<br />- Write a tool to scan for network connections, and connect and listen to wireless networks<br />- Keep your internet activity stealthy using Tor, proxy servers, VPNs, and encrypted email<br />- Write a bash script to scan open ports for potential targets<br />- Use and abuse services like MySQL, Apache web server, and OpenSSH<br />- Build your own hacking tools, such as a remote video spy camera and a password cracker<br /><br />Hacking is complex, and there is no single way in.
