Rust Quick Start Guide
Rust is an emerging programming language applicable to areas such as embedded programming, network programming, system programming, and web development. This book will take you from the basics of Rust to a point where your code compiles and does what you intend it to do!
This book starts with an introduction to Rust and how to get set for programming, including the rustup and cargo tools for managing a Rust installation and development workﬂow.
Then you'll learn about the fundamentals of structuring a Rust program, such as functions, mutability, data structures, implementing behavior for types, and many more. You will also learn about concepts that Rust handles differently from most other languages.
After understanding the Basics of Rust programming, you will learn about the core ideas, such as variable ownership, scope, lifetime, and borrowing. After these key ideas, you will explore making decisions in Rust based on d ...
The Rust Programming Language
The Rust Programming Language is the official book on Rust an open-source, community-developed systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. This is the undisputed go-to guide to Rust written by two members of the Rust core team, with feedback and contributions from 42 members of the community. The book assumes that you've written code in another programming language but makes no assumptions about which one, meaning the material is accessible and useful to developers from a wide variety of programming backgrounds.
Known by the Rust community as "The Book", The Rust Programming Language includes concept chapters, where you'll learn about a particular aspect of Rust and project chapters, where you'll apply what you've learned so far to build small programs.
The Book opens with a quick hands-on project to introduce the basics then explores key concepts in depth, such as owners ...
Hands-On Functional Programming in Rust
Functional Programming allows developers to divide programs into smaller, reusable components that ease the creation, testing, and maintenance of software as a whole. Combined with the power of Rust you can develop robust and scalable applications that fulfill modern day software requirements. This book will help you discover all the Rust features that can be used to build software in a functional way.
We begin with a brief comparison of the functional and object-oriented approach to different problems and patterns. We then quickly look at the patterns of control flow, data the abstractions of these unique to Functional Programming. The next part covers how to create functional apps in Rust; mutability and ownership, which are exclusive to Rust are also discussed. Pure functions are examined next and you'll master closures, their various types, and currying. We also look at implementing concurrency through functional design principles and metaprogramming using m ...
Hands-On Concurrency with Rust
Most programming languages can really complicate things, especially with regard to unsafe memory access. The burden on you, the programmer, lies across two domains: understanding the modern machine and your language's pain-points. This book will teach you to how to manage program performance on modern machines and build fast, memory-safe, and concurrent software in Rust. It starts with the fundamentals of Rust and discusses machine architecture concepts. You will be taken through ways to measure and improve the performance of Rust code systematically and how to write collections with confidence. You will learn about the Sync and Send traits applied to threads, and coordinate thread execution with locks, atomic primitives, data-parallelism, and more.
The book will show you how to efficiently embed Rust in C++ code and explore the functionalities of various crates for multithreaded applications. It explores implementations in depth. You will know how a mutex works ...
Learn to program with Rust in an easy, step-by-step manner on Unix, Linux shell, macOS and the Windows command line. As you read this book, you'll build on the knowledge you gained in previous chapters and see what Rust has to offer.
Beginning Rust starts with the basics of Rust including how to name objects, control execution flow, and handle primitive types. You'll see how to do arithmetic, allocate memory, use iterators, and handle input/output. Once you have mastered these core skills, you'll work on handling errors and using the object-oriented features of Rust to build robust Rust applications in no time.
Only a basic knowledge of programming is required, preferably in C or C++. To understand this book, it's enough to know what integers and floating-point numbers are, and to distinguish identifiers from string literals.

Zero Trust Networks
Perimeter defenses guarding your network aren't as secure as you might think. Hosts behind the firewall have no defenses of their own, so when a host in the "trusted" zone is breached, access to your data center is not far behind. This practical book introduces you to the zero trust model, a method that treats all hosts as if they're internet-facing, and considers the entire network to be compromised and hostile.
Authors Evan Gilman and Doug Barth show you how zero trust lets you focus on building strong authentication, authorization, and encryption throughout, while providing compartmentalized access and better operational agility. You'll learn the architecture of a zero trust network, including how to build one using currently available technology.
Understand how the zero trust model embeds security within the system's operation, rather than layering it on top; Examine the fundamental concepts at play in a zero trust network, including network ...
Rust is a new systems programming language that combines the performance and low-level control of C and C++ with memory safety and thread safety. Rust's modern, flexible types ensure your program is free of null pointer dereferences, double frees, dangling pointers, and similar bugs, all at compile time, without runtime overhead. In multi-threaded code, Rust catches data races at compile time, making concurrency much easier to use.
Written by two experienced systems programmers, this book explains how Rust manages to bridge the gap between performance and safety, and how you can take advantage of it.
Topics include:How Rust represents values in memory (with diagrams);Complete explanations of ownership, moves, borrows, and lifetimes;Cargo, rustdoc, unit tests, and how to publish your code on crates.io, Rust's public package repository;High-level features like generic code, closures, collections, and iterators that make ...
This practical book introduces systems programmers to Rust the new and cutting-edge language. You'll learn how Rust offers the rare and valuable combination of statically verified memory safety and low-level control—imagine C++, but without dangling pointers, null pointer dereferences, leaks, or buffer overruns.
Author Jim Blandy - a former maintainer of GNU Emacs and GNU Guile - demonstrates how Rust has the potential to be the first usable programming language that brings the benefits of an expressive modern type system to systems programming. Rust's rules for borrowing, mutability, ownership, and moves versus copies will be unfamiliar to most systems programmers, but they're key to Rust's unique advantages.
This book presents Rust's rules clearly and economically; elaborates on their consequences; and shows you how to express the programs you want to write in terms that Rust can prove are free of broad classes of everyday errors. ...
