I will briefly tell you what is inside our BSD publication this time.
I collected the articles written by experts in the field to provide you with the highest-quality knowledge. In this issue, you will find articles written by David Carlier, Saumya Dwivedi and Parag Gupta, Mark Sitkowski, Mark Ryan M. Talabis, Robert McPherson, I. Miyamoto, Jason L. Martin, and Annie A. Zhang.
You will also find the monthly column by Rob Somerville. At the end, I decided to add the Presentations section that was designed for companies that want to present their profile, goals, ideas, and products. It can be interesting for you to read.

The Journey of a C Developer in the FreeBSD World
Moving from Linux to FreeBSD involves quite a number of changes; some gains and some losses. As a developer for most of the programming languages, especially the high level ones, there are no meaningful disturbing changes. But for languages like C (and its sibling C++), if you want to port your softwares, libraries, etc, some points need to be considered.
Exploits Using ICMP Protocol
Saumya Dwivedi and Parag Gupta
Internet Control Message Protocol (shorthand, ICMP) is a part of the Internet Protocol used by network devices to send error messages to other connected hosts; for example, to indicate that a requested service is not available or a router could not be reached. But many times, this protocol is abused to transfer malicious data packets.This article will discuss the vulnerabilities and security loopholes associated with these types of data transfers and potential options to prevent these security attacks. You will learn how to understand ICMP and its role in networking.
Dear JP Morgan, Target, Neiman Marcus, Michael’s, Home Depot...
If you want to design a hypothetical IT installation, which can be considered to be either a retail operation, or a financial institution, equipped with either POS or ATM terminals, operated by bank cards or store cards. The system will possibly consist of a web server, with your landing page and login page, a database server, a business server, which contains transaction records and account details, and an authentication server, which confirms the identity of each system user.
You will learn the list of all the components of a bulletproof IT system, and which one you should choose to omit various parts, if the extra risk is justifiable.

There are so many ways that malicious users can access IT systems right now. In fact, the very technologies affording us the convenience to remotely access our IT systems are the ones that are being manipulated by malicious users. In today’s IT environment, physical access is no longer a hindrance to gaining access to internal resources and data. The authors would like to provide some techniques and tools that could help you in these types of scenarios. Some of the things the authors will explore include knowledge engineering, by means of programming detection strategies. If you do not know how to program, do not worry. The authors will provide simple techniques and step-by-step, walkthrough instruction to get you going.
FreeNAS 9.3 Features - Support for VMware VAAI
Annie A. Zhang
With the recent deaths from the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in Paris, what implications does this tragic event have for freedom of speech not only for print journalists but for the Internet community at large?
At Stratoscale, the teams focused on how technology can be leveraged to help IT teams make better and more profitable usage of existing infrastructures. They know that data needs are growing at an ever-increasing pace, so they’ve build a hardware-agnostic and hyper-converged software solution that lowers the cost of scale-out and allows your IT infrastructure to keep up with business growth.
AexolGL - New 3D Graphics Engine
Aexol specialises in creating mobile applications. It was created by Artur Czemiel, a graduate of the DRIMAGINE 3D Animation & VFX Academy, who has a lifelong interest in 3D technology. He first started to realise his passion by working in the film industry. Artur is the co-creator of the special effects in the Polish production “Weekend” and the short film “Hexaemeron”, which was awarded the Finest Art award at the Fokus Festival and nominated as the best short animated film at fLEXiff 2010 Australia. The experience gained by working in the movie industry and in the mobile applications market was the basis for creating AexolGL - a tool designed to make work easier for Aexol and other programmers around the world.
