Mastering Python Networking - Third Edition

By: Eric Chou

Overview of this book

Networks in your infrastructure set the foundation for how your application can be deployed, maintained, and serviced. Python is the ideal language for network engineers to explore tools that were previously available to systems engineers and application developers. In Mastering Python Networking, Third edition, you’ll embark on a Python-based journey to transition from traditional network engineers to network developers ready for the next-generation of networks. This new edition is completely revised and updated to work with Python 3. In addition to new chapters on network data analysis with ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats) and Azure Cloud Networking, it includes updates on using newer libraries such as pyATS and Nornir, as well as Ansible 2.8. Each chapter is updated with the latest libraries with working examples to ensure compatibility and understanding of the concepts. Starting with a basic overview of Python, the book teaches you how it can interact with both legacy and API-enabled network devices. You will learn to leverage high-level Python packages and frameworks to perform network automation tasks, monitoring, management, and enhanced network security followed by Azure and AWS Cloud networking. Finally, you will use Jenkins for continuous integration as well as testing tools to verify your network.

Other AWS network services

There are lots of other AWS network services that we do not have the space to cover here. Some of the more ones are listed in this section:

This is a relatively new service, but it can minimize the number of connections that you need to set up and manage. This can also serve as a tool when you need to share resources between separate AWS accounts.
  • Amazon GuardDuty ( This is a managed threat detection service that continuously monitors for malicious or unauthorized behavior to help protect our AWS workloads. It monitors API calls or potentially unauthorized deployments.
  • AWS WAF ( This is a web application firewall that helps protect web applications from common exploits. We can define customized web security rules...
