Python Network Programming: Power up your network applications with Python programming
This Learning Path reviews the core elements of Python and the TCP/IP protocol suite. It highlights major aspects of Python Network Programming such as writing simple networking clients, creating and deploying SDN and NFV systems, and extending your network with Mininet. You’ll also learn how to automate legacy and the latest network devices. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll use Python for DevOps and open source tools to test, secure, and analyze your network. This Learning Path will guide you in configuring the Linux Foundation networking ecosystem and deploying automated networks in the cloud. You will gain experience in retrieving network information with flow-based monitoring, a polling mechanism, and data visualization. Toward the end, you’ll develop client-side applications, such as web API clients, email clients, SSH, and FTP, using socket programming and multithreaded or event-driven architectures.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will have learned how to analyze a network’s security vulnerabilities using advanced network packet capture and analysis techniques.
