The control of processes and threads

The control of processes and threads are of deep concern by developers of all operating systems capable of handling “real or emulated” simultaneous computer activity. Threads are typically created by processes (initially invoked by the user or another process). Discuss how an operating system manages these processes and threads, how they are instantiated and discarded, how the activity is controlled, along with the respective advantages and disadvantages of both process and thread. Do not discuss MS Windows OS. Instead you may choose from Linux, UNIX, ROS, z/OS, or VM.

The most appropriate VPN technology

Scenario
As you are aware, many remote users will soon need access to the internal network and services. A remote access and virtual private network (VPN) plan is needed to connect it all together.

The senior network architect has asked you to create the plan that will allow secure remote access to the internal network while preventing unauthorized access. He specifically requested that all information transferred between remote users and the organizational servers be protected against snooping.

Tasks
For this part of the project, perform the following tasks:

  1. Research and recommend the most appropriate VPN technology. The most likely solution is either an Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) VPN or SSL/TLS VPN. Describe the VPN technology and explain why it is the best choice for Corporation Techs.
  2. Recommend any other forms of remote access that are relevant and describe how they would be used.
  3. Create a draft report detailing all information as supportive documentation.
  4. Cite sources, where appropriate.

Views on the Trojan War

What are your views on the Trojan War, as presented by Homer? Does the war seem to be fought for a just cause? Are we meant to take these events as seriously and solemnly as Homer and his characters seem to?
Sometimes, when comparing works of literature, we see things that we didn’t originally notice when reading the stories individually. With this in mind, think back to week 1 and the Epic of Gilgamesh. Where do you see similarities in character, theme, plot, or style between that earlier epic and the Iliad? How do you think Gilgamesh influenced Homer’s work? What are any important differences you see between the two stories?
