The Definitive Guide to Windows API Programming, Fully Updated for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista Windows System Programming, Fourth Edition, now contains extensive new coverage of 64-bit programming, parallelism, multicore systems, and many other crucial topics. Johnson Hart’s robust code examples have been updated and streamlined throughout. They have been debugged and tested in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, on single and multiprocessor systems, and under Windows 7, Vista, Server 2008, and Windows XP. To clarify program operation, sample programs are now illustrated with dozens of screenshots. Hart systematically covers Windows externals at the API level, presenting practical coverage of all the services Windows programmers need, and emphasizing how Windows functions actually behave and interact in real-world applications. Hart begins with features used in single-process applications and gradually progresses to more sophisticated functions and multithreaded environments. Topics covered include file systems, memory management, exceptions, processes, threads, synchronization, interprocess communication, Windows services, and security. New coverage in this edition includes Leveraging parallelism and maximizing performance in multicore systems Promoting source code portability and application interoperability across Windows, Linux, and UNIX Using 64-bit address spaces and ensuring 64-bit/32-bit portability Improving performance and scalability using threads, thread pools, and completion ports Techniques to improve program reliability and performance in all systems Windows performance-enhancing API features available starting with Windows Vista, such as slim reader/writer locks and condition variables A companion Web site, jmhartsoftware.com, contains all sample code, Visual Studio projects, additional examples, errata, reader comments, and Windows commentary and discussion.

The definitive guide to programming with the Windows API - now updated for Microsoft's latest APIs and best practices • •Includes extensive new coverage of Win64, parallelism, multicore system performance, source code portability, .NET coexistence, security, benchmarking, and much more. •Updated, streamlined code examples reflect today's most effective Windows programming techniques. •The perfect practical complement to Mark Russinovich's Windows Internals Windows System Programming, 4/e is the definitive developer's guide to making the most of of the core Windows API, including those introduced with Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and beyond. Thoroughly updated to reflect Microsoft's new APIs, this book focuses on essential core system services -- file system, memory, processes and threads, synchronization, communication, and security -- rather than the more commonly featured graphical user interface functions. Beginning with an examination of the features required in a single-process application, the text gradually progresses to increasingly sophisticated functions and multithreaded environments. Each chapter contains realistic examples, and this edition's code samples have been updated and streamlined to reflect today's best practices for Windows development and 64-bit code portability. This edition's extensive new coverage includes: ' An all-new chapter on parallelism and performance in multicore systems ' Detailed new coverage of source code portability across Windows, Linux, and UNIX ' New coverage of .NET and managed code impact and co-existence ' When, why, and how to use the Windows API vs. .NET ' More coverage of security, benchmarking, and other key topics. Many readers have noted that Hart's book perfectly complements Mark Russinovich's well-known Windows Internals. Hart shows us how to make the most of the features that Russinovich describes.

“When you begin using multi-threading throughout an application, the importance of clean architecture and design is critical. . . . This places an emphasis on understanding not only the platform’s capabilities but also emerging best practices. Joe does a great job interspersing best practices alongside theory throughout his book.” – From the Foreword by Craig Mundie, Chief Research and Strategy Officer, Microsoft Corporation Author Joe Duffy has risen to the challenge of explaining how to write software that takes full advantage of concurrency and hardware parallelism. In Concurrent Programming on Windows, he explains how to design, implement, and maintain large-scale concurrent programs, primarily using C# and C++ for Windows. Duffy aims to give application, system, and library developers the tools and techniques needed to write efficient, safe code for multicore processors. This is important not only for the kinds of problems where concurrency is inherent and easily exploitable—such as server applications, compute-intensive image manipulation, financial analysis, simulations, and AI algorithms—but also for problems that can be speeded up using parallelism but require more effort—such as math libraries, sort routines, report generation, XML manipulation, and stream processing algorithms. Concurrent Programming on Windows has four major sections: The first introduces concurrency at a high level, followed by a section that focuses on the fundamental platform features, inner workings, and API details. Next, there is a section that describes common patterns, best practices, algorithms, and data structures that emerge while writing concurrent software. The final section covers many of the common system-wide architectural and process concerns of concurrent programming. This is the only book you’ll need in order to learn the best practices and common patterns for programming with concurrency on Windows and .NET.

Learn the Root Causes of Software Vulnerabilities and How to Avoid Them Commonly exploited software vulnerabilities are usually caused by avoidable software defects. Having analyzed tens of thousands of vulnerability reports since 1988, CERT has determined that a relatively small number of root causes account for most of the vulnerabilities. Secure Coding in C and C++, Second Edition, identifies and explains these root causes and shows the steps that can be taken to prevent exploitation. Moreover, this book encourages programmers to adopt security best practices and to develop a security mindset that can help protect software from tomorrow’s attacks, not just today’s. Drawing on the CERT’s reports and conclusions, Robert C. Seacord systematically identifies the program errors most likely to lead to security breaches, shows how they can be exploited, reviews the potential consequences, and presents secure alternatives. Coverage includes technical detail on how to Improve the overall security of any C or C++ application Thwart buffer overflows, stack-smashing, and return-oriented programming attacks that exploit insecure string manipulation logic Avoid vulnerabilities and security flaws resulting from the incorrect use of dynamic memory management functions Eliminate integer-related problems resulting from signed integer overflows, unsigned integer wrapping, and truncation errors Perform secure I/O, avoiding file system vulnerabilities Correctly use formatted output functions without introducing format-string vulnerabilities Avoid race conditions and other exploitable vulnerabilities while developing concurrent code The second edition features Updates for C11 and C++11 Significant revisions to chapters on strings, dynamic memory management, and integer security A new chapter on concurrency Access to the online secure coding course offered through Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative (OLI) Secure Coding in C and C++, Second Edition, presents hundreds of examples of secure code, insecure code, and exploits, implemented for Windows and Linux. If you’re responsible for creating secure C or C++ software–or for keeping it safe–no other book offers you this much detailed, expert assistance.
