30. Oktober 2012 Wrox Programmer to Programmer
An in-depth look into Mac OS X and iOS kernels
Powering Macs, iPhones, iPads and more, OS X and iOS are becoming ubiquitous. When it comes to documentation, however, much of them are shrouded in mystery. Cocoa and Carbon, the application frameworks, are neatly described, but system programmers find the rest lacking. This indispensable guide illuminates the darkest corners of those systems, starting with an architectural overview, then drilling all the way to the core.
* Provides you with a top down view of OS X and iOS
* Walks you through the phases of system startup--both Mac (EFi) and mobile (iBoot)
* Explains how processes, threads, virtual memory, and filesystems are maintained
* Covers the security architecture
* Reviews the internal Apis used by the system--BSD and Mach
* Dissects the kernel, XNU, into its sub components: Mach, the BSD Layer, and I/o kit, and explains each in detail
* Explains the inner workings of device drivers
From architecture to implementation, this book is essential reading if you want to get serious about the internal workings of Mac OS X and iOS.

Peeling Apple's Operating Systems
System-level developers, kernel hackers, and intrigued Apple-lytes, take heed: This book lets you explore the nooks and crannies of Mac OS X and iOS, delving into the architecture of both systems, and picking up where the frameworks (and documentation) leave off. It offers clear, detailed explanation of the inner workings of Apple's systems, including proprietary APIs, most of which are documented for the first time.
As you traverse the architecture, moving from user to kernel mode, each layer and component is unraveled with annotated code samples and hands-on experiments, comparing and contrasting its implementation in both OSes. Topics include:
* The boot process: Mac's EFI, iOS's iBoot, and kernel startup
* Processes, threads, and virtual memory management
* Debugging and profiling, using DTrace, ptrace, and hidden system calls
* The system level APIs: POSIX calls, Mach traps, and OS X/iOS proprietary
* File system architecture, including VFS and HFS+
* Network architecture: from sockets to interfaces, and network drivers
* Kernel extensions, drivers, and a discussion of I/O Kit architecture
* Security features, Mandatory Access Control, and iOS jail
The companion web site ( includes sample programs, freely downloadable tools, updated references, and bonus additions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Long missing book about Apple's OS Internals 18. März 2013
Von Jan H.
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As the author states in the Introduction: “This book aims to do for XNU what Bovet & Cesati's Understanding the Linux Kernel does for Linux, and Russinovich's Windows Internals does for Windows.” Knowing only the latter book, I would say that authors intention have been perfectly fulfilled. For those, which also knows Russinovich's and Solomon's standard work enough said.
For those others: The author understands his matter. He not only describes, but also make understand. To make a picture, the potentially reader should go to [...]. There he can read the Contents of the book and also download a full text of ( very important ) chapter 4. There are also some little tools ( with source code ) for delving deeper into OS X and iOS. Giving the tempo with which operating systems evolve, the book is pretty actual ( Lion ). You have not to read it from page first to page last, but you will be often happy to have it in the bookshelf. And you have not to be an expert in C or Assembler to profit from it ( although having some elementary knowledge of C would enlarge the pleasure ).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome 2. November 2012
Von Daniel Zimmerman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
So I've got an entire bookshelf dedicated to lower level software books and this is by far the most versatile and most information packed. It is incredibly terse and comprehensive. I can see anyone from just an average user that wants to learn about macs to a senior developer who has much experience in c and even objective c but not necessarily the inner workings of Darwin find a lot of use from this book. I have not finished it yet (its almost 1000 pages) but I have already learned enough to fill 10 buckets. What I also love is how it refers to other books that go far more in depth on each topic. So yes in a sense this book is comprised of summaries but they still go in depth enough for one to understand the gist of whats going on. I can say from the start that the chapter on EFI is pretty phenomenal and that coupled with all the information on the mach architecture has taught me an incredible amount. Overall if you are interested in learning about macs and how they work, or are a programmer and want to learn how to take advantage of some lower level stuff or if you're more in the hacker field and enjoy seeing how things work under the hood and how you can manipulate them to your advantage (me) you will definitely enjoy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book! 11. Dezember 2012
Von rgviva - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is a result of an extensive, epic research made by the author. Yes it is all open source, you could go an read the code to understand the architecture - but this is why you have books! It covers the subject really thoroughly and written in an easy to read format. The book contains some amazing reverse engineering work which is just cool and revealing things never covered since Amit's book. I wonder what Apple engineers think of this book. I bet they could buy it for their new recruits!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Perfect Security Resource as Well 18. Dezember 2012
Von Jason Haddix - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Doing iOS and Mac OSX security research becomes pretty hairy with the mountain of code and nature of objective-c and ARM. This book provides a reference that has just simply not been available in any other book. Our mobile penetration testers at Fortify are all reading this release right now and signing it's praises. We look forward to it aiding our automation efforts in identification of security vulnerabilities of iOS code. Also, the new command line tools and descriptions of them alone are worth the book cost.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A worthy successor. 3. November 2012
Von RichL - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is best book on OS X internals since Amit Singh's Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach, and certainly a good companion to the iOS Hacker's Handbook.
It covers OS X up to Lion and iOS up to iOS 5, which is understandable as it would be almost impossible to publish an up to date book given Apple's release schedule.

I would certainly recommend this to people look for a modern OS X internals reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book to snoop under the hood of OSX and iOS 23. November 2013
Von CF - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Really well made book; started it now but it has ton of info about OSX and iOS.

If you are a regular user, this book is a waste of time, but if you work on hardware, software or you want to learn the inner mechanics of this operating system, this book will guide you trough the ton of info that nobody tells you about.

I have serious problems to understand the official docs from Apple; when I am able to find what I need of course...and this book resolve both issues. It will guide you trough the various applications running on the system, telling you what they do, then you will get your feet wet working on terminal, getting info about the kernel, Mach and the underlying structure of the OS, where each specific layer is explained.

If you do kernel programming work, this book is a bible. IF you are a beginner, this book will tell you what is going on when you run your app on iOS or OSX, using Xcode, or how to manipulate some inner mechanism of the system.

Do yourself a favor and read this book; it is for Mac/iOS developers, the equivalent of what the K&R book is, for C programmers.
