Internet Multimedia Communications Using SIP Book Review:

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) was conceived in 1996 as a signaling protocol for inviting users to multimedia conferences. With this development, the next big Internet revolution silently started. That was the revolution which would end up converting the Internet into a total communication system which would allow people to talk to each other, see each other, work collaboratively or send messages in real time. Internet telephony and, in general, Internet multimedia, is the new revolution today and SIP is the key protocol which allows this revolution to grow. The book explains, in tutorial fashion, the underlying technologies that enable real-time IP multimedia communication services in the Internet (voice, video, presence, instant messaging, online picture sharing, white-boarding, etc). Focus is on session initiation protocol (SIP) but also covers session description protocol (SDP), Real-time transport protocol (RTP), and message session relay protocol (MSRP). In addition, it will also touch on other application-related protocols and refer to the latest research work in IETF and 3GPP about these topics. (3GPP stands for "third-generation partnership project" which is a collaboration agreement between ETSI (Europe), ARIB/TTC (Japan), CCSA (China), ATIS (North America) and TTA (South Korea).) The book includes discussion of leading edge theory (which is key to really understanding the technology) accompanied by Java examples that illustrate the theoretical concepts. Throughout the book, in addition to the code snippets, the reader is guided to build a simple but functional IP soft-phone therefore demonstrating the theory with practical examples. This book covers IP multimedia from both a theoretical and practical point of view focusing on letting the reader understand the concepts and put them into practice using Java. It includes lots of drawings, protocol diagrams, UML sequence diagrams and code snippets that allow the reader to rapidly understand the concepts. Focus on HOW multimedia communications over the Internet works to allow readers to really understand and implement the technology Explains how SIP works, including many programming examples so the reader can understand abstract concepts like SIP dialogs, SIP transactions, etc. It is not focused on just VoIP. It looks At a wide array of enhanced communication services related to SIP enabling the reader put this technology into practice. Includes nearly 100 references to the latest standards and working group activities in the IETF, bringing the reader completely up to date. Provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to build a basic, though functional, IP soft-phone allowing the reader to put concepts into practice. For advanced readers, the book also explains how to build a SIP proxy and a SIP registrar to enhance one's expertise and marketability in this fast moving area.

Internet Communications Using SIP Book Review:

"This book is like a good tour guide.It doesn't just describe themajor attractions; you share in the history, spirit, language, andculture of the place." --Henning Schulzrinne, Professor, Columbia University Since its birth in 1996, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) hasgrown up. As a richer, much more robust technology, SIP today isfully capable of supporting the communication systems that powerour twenty-first century work and life. This second edition handbook has been revamped to cover the neweststandards, services, and products. You'll find the latest on SIPusage beyond VoIP, including Presence, instant messaging (IM),mobility, and emergency services, as well as peer-to-peer SIPapplications, quality-of-service, and security issues--everythingyou need to build and deploy today's SIP services. This book will help you * Work with SIP in Presence and event-based communications * Handle SIP-based application-level mobility issues * Develop applications to facilitate communications access forusers with disabilities * Set up Internet-based emergency services * Explore how peer-to-peer SIP systems may change VoIP * Understand the critical importance of Internet transparency * Identify relevant standards and specifications * Handle potential quality-of-service and security problems

Handbook on Session Initiation Protocol Book Review:

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), has emulated the simplicity of the protocol architecture of hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) and is being popularized for VoIP over the Internet because of the ease with which it can be meshed with web services. However, it is difficult to know exactly how many requests for comments (RFCs) have been published over the last two decades in regards to SIP or how those RFCs are interrelated. Handbook on Session Initiation Protocol: Networked Multimedia Communications for IP Telephony solves that problem. It is the first book to put together all SIP-related RFCs, with their mandatory and optional texts, in a chronological and systematic way so that it can be used as a single super-SIP RFC with an almost one-to-one integrity from beginning to end, allowing you to see the big picture of SIP for the basic SIP functionalities. It is a book that network designers, software developers, product manufacturers, implementers, interoperability testers, professionals, professors, and researchers will find to be very useful. The text of each RFC from the IETF has been reviewed by all members of a given working group made up of world-renowned experts, and a rough consensus made on which parts of the drafts need to be mandatory and optional, including whether an RFC needs to be Standards Track, Informational, or Experimental. Texts, ABNF syntaxes, figures, tables, and references are included in their original form. All RFCs, along with their authors, are provided as references. The book is organized into twenty chapters based on the major functionalities, features, and capabilities of SIP.

Global E Security Book Review:

In today’s society, where technology is ubiquitous, protecting ourselves with firewalls is as important as defending ourselves with firepower. New technology is providing criminals with a world of opportunity, while law enforcement agencies all over the world are struggling to cope. E-security is an issue of global importance. In many ways, cybercrime is no different to more traditional types of crime – both involve identifying targets, using surveillance and psychological profiling of potential victims. The major difference is that the perpetrators of cybercrime are increasingly remote to the scene of their crime and that in some cases their victims may not even realize that a crime is taking place. Knowledge of the techniques being used by criminals and the technology and tra- ing available to combat them is essential in fighting cybercrime. Establishing dialogue between crime-fighting agencies, the security industry, researchers and experts can provide a platform from which e-security can be examined from several global p- spectives.
