CyberMonday 2016: Save 50% on ebook of "Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks"

Cybermonday2016 7ducattacks 700px Today on CyberMonday you can buy “Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks” and hundreds of other ebooks and videos from O’Reilly and associated publishers at a discount of 50% off or more. Simply go to:
http://oreil.ly/CyberMonday16
and start shopping. All you do is enter “CYBER16” as the promotion code when checking out.  The deal expires on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 05:00 US Pacific Time. Do note that this sale is for ebooks and not for the print versions of the books or for print/ebook bundles. You can also go directly to the book’s page at O’Reilly and add it to your cart using that page.

Although the book was written back in 2010, it is sadly still VERY relevant to the Voice-over-IP (VoIP) systems deployed today. I would have loved it if vendors would have made systems so much more secure that this book could be forgotten about... but the security concerns have only increased in the time since the publication. Even six years later it still offers relevant advice and suggestions about how to make sure your IP communication systems are as secure as possible.

I am a big fan of buying ebooks directly from O’Reilly because doing so gets you:

  • DRM-free – no stupidity with license restrictions.
  • Free lifetime access
  • Multiple formats (ex. ePUB, PDF, Kindle, etc.)
  • Free updates
  • Sync with Dropbox, Google Drive and other similar services
… and more! FYI, I recorded a short podcast episode about this sale: P.S. My “Migrating Applications to IPv6” book is also on sale as an ebook at O’Reilly’s site… if you are interested in how to make sure your applications can work over IPv6, please do check that book out, too.

Can You Please Rate or Review 7 Deadliest UC Attacks On O’Reilly’s Site?

Oreilly-book-logoIf you have read "Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks" and found the book helpful, could you please take a moment to rate and/or review the book on O'Reilly's website?  Even if you just enter the number of stars and say something very basic it would be helpful.  All you need to do is go to this page:

In preparation for today's Cyber Monday sale, I looked at the page and noticed that ever since O'Reilly started selling the book as an ebook there have not been any reviews there.  There are a few reviews on Goodreads and several very nice reviews over on Amazon.com, but none yet on O'Reilly's site.

These kind of ratings and reviews do help people decide whether to purchase a book - and they are helpful to me as an author, too, to understand what people did (or did not) find useful and helpful.

Thank you!

Cyber Monday Deal: 50% Off Ebook of Seven Deadliest UC Attacks

oreilly.com Cyber Monday SaleWould you like to purchase the ebook of "Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks" for 50% off? or maybe even 60% off? As I mentioned before, the folks at O'Reilly are now selling the ebook of 7 Deadliest UC Attacks and they have a promotion going on today:

Save 50% on all ebooks and videos at oreilly.com - and save 60% on all orders over $100.

Here's a great chance to help learn more about how to secure Unified Communications / VoIP systems - or to buy this book for someone you think would like to learn more on the subject.

The awesome aspects about ordering ebooks directly from O'Reilly include:

  • DRM-free - you can read the ebook on as many different devices as you want... and you don't have to mess around with silly licensing systems.
  • Multiple formats - you can download the book in ePub, Kindle, PDF.
  • Free lifetime access - you don't have a limit on when you can download the book and you can always go back in and get it.
  • Free updates - whenever there are updates to a book you get a notification and can easily download the update.

All around it's just a great system for working with ebooks... and yes, I'm an author for them so you might expect me to say this, but I'm also a consumer who purchases ebooks and I like their system better than any of the other ones out there that I've tried.

I'll note on the "Free updates" part - I don't yet have any current plans to update "Seven Deadliest UC Attacks"  (unlike my "Migrating Applications to IPv6" book that will see an update in 2014) but if I do work on an update at some future point, ebook purchasers through O'Reilly would be the ones to easily get an update (versus print or ebook through other systems).  And you will get updates for any other ebooks you purchase.

It's a great deal - and I'd encourage you to stock up on ebooks from O'Reilly's site today!


P.S. To comply with full disclosure requirements: the links in this post are affiliate links - I will make a tiny amount of money if you purchase any ebooks after following these links... but that's not why I'm writing this post.

What IPv6 Migration Questions Would You Like To Know From App Developers?

Question markWhat questions would you like to ask of developers who have successfully migrated their applications to IPv6? What tips and tricks would you like to learn?

I am planning to update “Migrating Applications to IPv6” this summer to include pointers to some of the newer RFCs and transition tutorials and in doing the update I would like to add in mini-“case studies” of applications that have already made the transition to IPv6. Some of the questions I’m thinking of asking developers include:

  • How easy or difficult was the migration to IPv6 for your application?
  • What was the most challenging aspect of the migration?
  • Were there any specific tools or libraries that proved to be the most helpful?
  • Did you encounter any surprises in terms of IP address dependency? i.e. places in your code where you didn’t realize you depended upon an IP address?
  • Did you have to make any significant changes to the way you store information? i.e. configuration files, databases, etc.
  • How did you test your application in an IPv6 environment?
  • Does your app work in both an IPv6-only and dual-stack environment?
  • Is there anything you wish you’d known before you started the move to IPv6?

Do you have other questions you would like me to ask? If so, please either leave a message for me here on the site or on one of the social networks where I post this message – or send me an email.

I would also be interested to hear which of these questions above are the most important to you. What are your top 2 or 3 concerns about migrating your app to IPv6?

Also, if you are an application developer who has already ported your application to IPv6 and would be interested in being a case study in the updated book, please contact me as I am looking to get started on these updates soon.

On that note, I’m also thinking about perhaps creating some interviews in video and audio form related to these questions above… so if you would be interested in some multimedia exposure for your application please let me know that, too. (Thanks!)
