Overview of this book

Jupyter has garnered a strong interest in the data science community of late, as it makes common data processing and analysis tasks much simpler. This book is for data science professionals who want to master various tasks related to Jupyter to create efficient, easy-to-share, scientific applications. The book starts with recipes on installing and running the Jupyter Notebook system on various platforms and configuring the various packages that can be used with it. You will then see how you can implement different programming languages and frameworks, such as Python, R, Julia, JavaScript, Scala, and Spark on your Jupyter Notebook. This book contains intuitive recipes on building interactive widgets to manipulate and visualize data in real time, sharing your code, creating a multi-user environment, and organizing your notebook. You will then get hands-on experience with Jupyter Labs, microservices, and deploying them on the web. By the end of this book, you will have taken your knowledge of Jupyter to the next level to perform all key tasks associated with it.

Additional practices

There are several miscellaneous steps that can be taken to further the security of your system.

How to do it...

Let us take a look at some of the ways to enhance the security of our system in the following sections.

Server IP address

You can specify the IP address to be used by your Notebook rather than using the default. Many hacking scenarios count on you using default values, such as the port, to quickly acquire targets.

The IP address used by the Notebook can be changed with this configuration command:

c.NotebookApp.port = 9732

Note that once you determine the port for Jupyter, you need to apply the filter to your firewall so that communication to the Notebook will get through.

URL prefix

The default installation for Jupyter runs at http://localhost:8888. While this is convenient for individual use, it can cause problems where other applications may be running at the same port at the server root address. One more tool available is to apply a prefix to the Notebook url using...
