Learn to use C#´s powerful set of core libraries to automate tedious yet important tasks like performing vulnerability scans, malware analysis, and incident response. With some help from Mono, you can write your own practical security tools that will run on Mac, Linux, and even mobile devices. Following a crash course in C# and some of its advanced features, you´ll learn how to: -Write fuzzers that use the HTTP and XML libraries to scan for SQL and XSS injection -Generate shellcode in Metasploit to create cross-platform and cross-architecture payloads -Automate Nessus, OpenVAS, and sqlmap to scan for vulnerabilities and exploit SQL injections -Write a .NET decompiler for Mac and Linux -Parse and read offline registry hives to dump system information -Automate the security tools Arachni and Metasploit using their MSGPACK RPCs Streamline and simplify your work day with Gray Hat C# and C#´s extensive repertoire of powerful tools and libraries.
Get a head start with eXist, the open source NoSQL database and application development platform built entirely around XML technologies. With this hands-on guide, you?ll learn eXist from the ground up, from using this feature-rich database to work with millions of documents to building complex web applications that take advantage of eXist?s many extensions. If you?re familiar with XML?as a student, professor, publisher, or developer?you?ll find that eXist is ideal for all kinds of documents. This book shows you how to store, query, and search documents with XQuery and other XML technologies, and how to construct applications on top of the database with tools such as eXide and eXist?s built-in development environment. * Manage both data-oriented and text-oriented markup documents securely * Build a sample application that analyzes and searches Shakespeare?s plays * Go inside the architecture and learn how eXist processes documents * Learn how to work with eXist?s internal development environment * Choose among various indexes, including a full-text index based on Apache Lucene * Dive into eXist?s APIs for integrating or interacting with the database * Extend eXist by building your own Triggers, Scheduled Tasks, and XQuery extension modules
Advanced data management has always been at the core of efficient database and information systems. Recent trends like big data and cloud computing have aggravated the need for sophisticated and flexible data storage and processing solutions.This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the principles of data management developed in the last decades with a focus on data structures and query languages. It treats a wealth of different data models and surveys the foundations of structuring, processing, storing and querying data according these models. Starting off with the topic of database design, it further discusses weaknesses of the relational data model, and then proceeds to convey the basics of graph data, tree-structured XML data, key-value pairs and nested, semi-structured JSON data, columnar and record-oriented data as well as object-oriented data. The final chapters round the book off with an analysis of fragmentation, replication and consistency strategies for data management in distributed databases as well as recommendations for handling polyglot persistence in multi-model databases and multi-database architectures. While primarily geared towards students of Master-level courses in Computer Science and related areas, this book may also be of benefit to practitioners looking for a reference book on data modeling and query processing. It provides both theoretical depth and a concise treatment of open source technologies currently on the market.
