Power up your network applications with Python programming
This Learning Path highlights major aspects of Python network programming such as writing simple networking clients, creating and deploying SDN and NFV systems, and extending your network with Mininet. You’ll also learn how to automate legacy and the latest network devices. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll use Python for DevOps and open source tools to test, secure, and analyze your network. Toward the end, you’ll develop client-side applications, such as web API clients, email clients, SSH, and FTP, using socket programming.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will have learned how to analyze a network’s security vulnerabilities using advanced network packet capture and analysis techniques.
