TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 : The Protocols, 2/e (美國原版)

Kevin R. Fall, W. Richard Stevens



“For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.”

—Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer


TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a 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.


Building on 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 Wi-Fi–through network, transport, and application layers.


Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/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, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the 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.

《TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition》是一本詳細且視覺化的指南,介紹了當今的TCP/IP協議套件。本書已根據最新的創新進行全面更新,並通過現代Linux、Windows和Mac OS環境中的實際示例展示了每個協議的運作方式。沒有比這更好的方式來了解為什麼TCP/IP能夠如此運作,它如何對常見情況做出反應,以及如何在自己的應用程序和網絡中應用它。

在已故的W. Richard Stevens的經典第一版的基礎上,作者Kevin R. Fall以他在TCP/IP協議研究領域的尖端經驗為基礎,更新了本書,以充分反映最新的協議和最佳實踐。他首先介紹了TCP/IP的核心目標和架構概念,展示了它們如何能夠穩固地連接不同的網絡並支持同時運行的多個服務。接下來,他詳細解釋了IPv4和IPv6網絡中的網際網路地址。然後,他從底層開始,循序漸進地介紹了TCP/IP的結構和功能,從鏈路層協議(如以太網和Wi-Fi)到網絡、傳輸和應用層。
