Book Review: The Official VMware VCP5 Certification Guide
The moment we find a book that gears us for a certification, straightaway we get into ‘I need to achieve’ mode. With it comes the urge to use shortcuts and randomly ignore things that you might think are irrelevant. I have said this before and I will say it again: a certification is just one milestone in the journey to attaining expertise, it is not the endgame. In spite of the fact that this book is written for the purpose of a certification, it does much more than that.
This is tailored to make you competent on vSphere 5. I would, however, tip my hat to the author for making that task much more manageable and entertaining. He has given careful attention to the goals and has kept the journey as simple as possible. I would not waste your time extolling the need for virtualisation. That is a well established fact. What this book does is prepare you to extract the best out of some really efficient virtualisation tools brought to us by VMware, which holds the position of being pathfinder in the virtualisation industry.

Book Review: Securing Cisco IP Telephony Networks - By Akhil Behl Double CCIE (Voice & Security) #19564
Reviewer: Arani Mukherjee
The days of staring at a mess of wires under the desk coming out of a PSTN Master Socket are truly over. The advent of VoIP has broken the stranglehold of a telephone cable and the network has finally taken over. I would not say that IP Telephony has revolutionised the telephony sector. That momentous transition happened years ago. We currently are going through a phase where it is common to have IP Telephony integrated into any enterprise and network administrators are actively implementing security measures and policies to it. Network security is of paramount importance and IP Telephony is not to be left behind. The fact is that Cisco, the market leader in network technology, also happens to be leading the IP Telephony field. Hence it has rightly decided that establishing robust security architecture is core to Cisco IP Telephony.
The latest Cisco title addresses the aforementioned issue promptly and efficiently. Whenever a technology becomes efficient, scalable and portable and is seen as an improvement on the incumbent technology, it is deemed indispensable. From that moment it also becomes a point of failure that can cripple a business because it has now inherited security vulnerabilities and threats. The same can be said about Cisco IP Telephony. What this book aims to achieve is, and I quote, “to explain an End-to-End IP Telephony Security approach and architecture…” And I assure you, this title does plenty of justice to that aim. So let’s dig deeper into the way this book deals with the issues and how it tackles security policies, principles and their respective implementations.
