Operating System, an integral part of any computer, is the interface between the computer users and the hardware. This comprehensive book provides the readers with the basic under-standing of the theoretical and practical aspects of operating systems. The text explains the operating systems and components of operating systems including attributes of Linux and Unix operating systems. It also discusses Android operating system and Tablet computer. The book explicates in-depth the concepts of process, threads/multithreading and scheduling and describes process synchronization, deadlocks and memory management including file access methods and directory structure. In addition, it also describes security and protection along with distributed file systems. The book is designed as a textbook for undergraduate students of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Information Technology as well as post-graduate students of computer applications and computer science.

Smartphone Operating System Concepts with Symbian OS uses Symbian OS as a vehicle to discuss operating system concepts as they are applied to mobile operating systems.It is this focus that makes this tutorial guide both invaluable and extremely relevant for today's student.In addition to presenting and discussing operating system concepts, this book also includes exercises that compare and contrast Symbian OS, Unix/Linux and Microsoft Windows. These assignments can be worked on in a classroom laboratory or in a student's own time. The book is replete with examples (both conceptual and applied to handhelds) as well as: * Summaries at the end of each chapter. * Problems the students can do as homework. * Experiment-oriented exercises and questions for students to complete on a handheld device * A reading list, bibliography and a list of sources for handheld software It also contains a series of on-line laboratories based on the software developed for Symbian OS devices. Students can perform these labs anywhere, and can use printing and e-mail facilities to construct lab write-ups and hand in assignments. Students, for the first time, will be taught Symbian OS concepts so that they can start developing smartphone applications and become part of the mass-market revolution.

"Operating systems provide the fundamental mechanisms for securing computer processing. Since the 1960s, operating systems designers have explored how to build"secure" operating systems - operating systems whose mechanisms protect the system against a motivated adversary. Recently, the importance of ensuring such security has become a mainstream issue for all operating systems. In this book, we examine past research that outlines the requirements for a secure operating system and research that implements example systems that aim for such requirements. For system designs that aimed to satisfy these requirements,we see that the complexity of software systems often results in implementation challenges that we are still exploring to this day. However, if a system design does not aim for achieving the secure operating system requirements, then its security features fail to protect the system in a myriad of ways. We also study systems that have been retro-fit with secure operating system features after an initial deployment. In all cases, the conflict between function on one hand and security on the other leads to difficult choices and the potential for unwise compromises. From this book, we hope that systems designers and implementers will learn the requirements for operating systems that effectively enforce security and will better understand how to manage the balance between function and security."--BOOK JACKET.
