NodeJS and FreeBSD

Dear Readers,

The BSD magazine team is pleased to announce the launch of the next issue of BSD magazine. A lot of tutorials and practice rich articles are included in this issue  to help you develop your skills and knowledge. Our ultimate goal is to provide our readers with exactly the knowledge and skills they need in their IT careers. Hence, we will be very glad to receive your suggestions for workshops, tutorials, what you need most, etc...

Let's take a look at what you will learn in this issue.

NodeJS and FreeBSD - Part 1
David Carlier
Nodejs is well known to allow building server applications in full JavaScript. In this article, we’ll see how to build nodejs from source code on FreeBSD. You will need autoconf tools, GNU make, Python, linprocfs enabled and libexecinfo installed. GCC/G++ compiler suite (C++11 compliant, ideally 4.8 series or above) or possibly clang can be used to compile the whole source.

Basecamp - Project Management for the Sane
Troy Hipolito

In this tutorial, we will dive into a basic understanding of Basecamp (a project management tool we use), as well as learn how to get up to speed quickly so that you can start realizing the benefits of the program, among which are centralizing communications, reducing the frequency of meetings, facilitating team coordination on projects, and providing transparency on timelines.

A Complete Guide to FreeNAS Hardware Design, Part III: Pools, Performance, and Cache. ZFS Pool Configuration
Joshua Paetzel
ZFS storage pools are comprised of vdevs which are striped together. vdevs can be single disks, N-way mirrors, RAIDZ (Similar to RAID5), RAIDZ2 (Similar to RAID6), or RAIDZ3 (there is no hardware RAID analog to this, but it’s a triple parity stripe essentially). A key thing to know here is a ZFS vdev gives the IOPs performance of one device in the vdev. That means that if you create a RAIDZ2 of ten drives, it will have the capacity of 8 drives but it will have the IOPs performance of a single drive.

Does your information belong to the CIA triad?
Rob Somerville
Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability are the three pillars of Information Security. In this article, we pose a number of scenarios to you, the IT professional, and ask “What would you do”? Every environment is different, so we will not provide any answers. Rather, we want to stimulate thought and debate around the ethics that Donn Parker says are missing from the computer center.

Google Earth Forensics. Digital Forensics 101
Michael Harrington and Michael Cross
Digital Forensics is a branch of forensic science that focuses on the recovery, examination, and investigation of evidence stored on computers and other digital devices, as well as various media that may have been used to store data. Although it is commonly associated with criminal investigations, digital forensics has been used in civil cases, internal investigations, tribunals, and other inquiries or forums that require an exploration of data.
