802.1X Port-Based Authentication by Edwin Lyle Brown
English | 2007 | ISBN: 1420044648 | 548 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

Port-based authentication is a “network access control” concept in which a particular device is evaluated before being permitted to communicate with other devices located on the network. 802.1X Port-Based Authentication examines how this concept can be applied and the effects of its application to the majority of computer networks in existence today. 802.1X is a standard that extends the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) over a Local Area Network (LAN) through a process called Extensible Authentication Protocol Over LANs (EAPOL). The text presents an introductory overview of port-based authentication including a description of 802.1X port-based authentication, a history of the standard and the technical documents published, and details of the connections among the three network components. It focuses on the technical aspect of 802.1X and the related protocols and components involved in implementing it in a network. The book provides an in-depth discussion of technology, design, and implementation with a specific focus on Cisco devices. Including examples derived from the 802.1X implementation, it also addresses troubleshooting issues in a Cisco environment. Each chapter contains a subject overview. Incorporating theoretical and practical approaches, 802.1X Port-Based Authentication seeks to define this complex concept in accessible terms. It explores various applications to today’s computer networks using this particular network protocol.

Local Architecture: Building Place, Craft, and Community

English | ISBN: 1616891289 | 2014 | PDF, EPUB | 224 pages | 197 MB, 24 MB


In architecture, as in food, local is an idea whose time has come. Of course, the idea of an architecture that responds to site; draws on local building traditions, materials, and crafts; and strives to create a sense of community is not recent. Yet, the way it has evolved in the past few years in the hands of some of the world's most accomplished architects is indeed defining a new movement. From the rammed-earth houses of Rick Joy and Pacific Northwest timber houses of Tom Kundig, to the community-built structures of Rural Studio and Francis Kéré, designers everywhere are championing an architecture that exists from, in, and for a specific place.
