[PDF][EBOOK]Building Secure and Reliable Systems

Recommended Posts

Can a system be considered truly reliable if it isn't fundamentally secure? Or can it be considered secure if it's unreliable? Security is crucial to the design and operation of scalable systems in production, as it plays an important part in product quality, performance, and availability. In this book, experts from Google share best practices to help your organization design scalable and reliable systems that are fundamentally secure.

Two previous O’Reilly books from Google—Site Reliability Engineering and The Site Reliability Workbook—demonstrated how and why a commitment to the entire service lifecycle enables organizations to successfully build, deploy, monitor, and maintain software systems. In this latest guide, the authors offer insights into system design, implementation, and maintenance from practitioners who specialize in security and reliability. They also discuss how building and adopting their recommended best practices requires a culture that’s supportive of such change.

You’ll learn about secure and reliable systems through:

  • Design strategies
  • Recommendations for coding, testing, and debugging practices
  • Strategies to prepare for, respond to, and recover from incidents
  • Cultural best practices that help teams across your organization collaborate effectively

Chiar fun read, nu e hype sau buzzword. Sunt exemplificate scenarii in fiecare capitol despre cum despre cum s-au ars unii si cum face Google handle la problemele respective, adesea cu referinte catre industry standards. Cartea cred ca e mai degraba adresata "arhitectilor" de sisteme in cloud care au resursele necesare sa tina cont si de security(cu toate ca in carte se dezbat si trade-offs pentru ca e aproape imposibil sa construiesti o arhitectura 100% secure odata ce creste in complexitate - de unde si conceptul de "defense in depth"). Multe subiecte sunt common sense pentru cineva venit din pentest / linux, dar cartea asta le delimiteaza si le pune intr-un cloud context cu un emphasis pe reliability
