Why you should use Apache Solr

Apache Solr is a subproject of Apache Lucene, which is the indexing technology behind most recently created search and index technology.
Solr is a search engine at heart, but it is much more than that.
It is a NoSQL database with transactional support.
It is a document database that offers SQL support and executes it in a distributed manner.Sound interesting? Join me for a closer look. (Full disclosure: I work for Lucidworks, which employs many of the key contributors to the Solr project.)[ NoSQL grudge match: MongoDB and Couchbase Server go nose to nose. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s Application Development newsletter. ]You need a decent machine (or just use an AWS instance) with ideally 8GB or more RAM. You can find Solr at http://lucene.apache.org/solr. You also need the Java Virtual Machine version 8. Unzip/untar Solr into a directory, make sure JAVA_HOME is set, and that the java binary is in your path.

Change to the directory Solr is in and type bin/solr start -e cloud -noprompt.

Yandex open sources CatBoost machine learning library

Russian search engine creator Yandex has joined the ranks of Google, Amazon, and Microsoft by releasing its own open source machine learning library, CatBoost.The Apache-licensed CatBoost is for “open-source gradient boosting on decision trees,” according to its GitHub repositoryrsquo;s README.
Itnbsp;provides a way to perform classifications and rankings of data by using a collection of decision-making mechanisms, or “learners,” rather than a single one. Results generated by the learners are weighted and classified based on the strengths and weaknesses of each learner.

By combining many learners, CatBoost can yield better results than decision-making systems that rely on individual learners.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The rules for REST: How to be RESTful in HTTP/JSON APIs

Recently, I was trying to write a little client script for Apache Solr.
It was just supposed to add some data, retrieve it, and delete it.
I thought Irsquo;d just do obvious things.

But as it turns out I actually had to read carefully.You see, if I post to http://localhost:8983/solr/my_collection/update/json/docs a JSON document {"id": "1","title": "Doc 1"}, it shows up somewhere other than http://localhost:8983/solr/my_collection/update/json/docs/1.[ Get your websites up to speed with HTML5 today using the techniques in InfoWorld's HTML5 Deep Dive PDF how-to report. | Learn where HTML5 is headed next. ]Solr is essentially a search engine.
Solr has a HTTP/JSON-based API. However, it isnrsquo;t exactly a REST API because it doesnrsquo;t really follow any of the rules for a well-defined REST interface.
I whine about this sometimes. Maybe one day if I have time Irsquo;ll even fix it. (I work for Lucidworks, which does most of the development of Solr.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Free search engine tool hunts down malware-infected computers

Internet search engine Shodan provides enterprise security teams a wealth of information about open ports on servers and other internet-connected devices. Now, as part of a partnership with threat intelligence company Recorded Future, security analysts and researchers can work with Shodan to uncover systems manipulated to control malware-infected devices.Shodan’s specialized crawler doesn’t gather information about websites, but rather details about the connected devices, including servers, routers, webcams, and other internet of things devices.

The new Malware Hunter crawler takes the scanning a step further and actively hunts for computers that are acting as remote access Trojan (RAT) command-and-control servers.

As such, it is a powerful tool for threat analysts, security operations center (SOC) teams, and dedicated security personnel within the enterprise trying to proactively identify and defend against certain types of malware families, said Levi Gundert, vice president of intelligence and strategy at Recorded Future.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Microsoft’s novel approach to securing IoT

One of the main problems facing industrial internet of things deployments is that perennial issue: security. When you’re deploying and managing hundreds or thousands of devices around an organization, how can you ensure that your devices are running the right firmware, are running the right software, or even that they’re communicating with the right servers? You have only to browse Shodan, a search engine for unsecured IoT hardware endpoints, to see how insecure the devices used to build our future on have become.It’s no surprise then that Microsoft is talking about its latest updates to Azure’s IoT tools, focusing on securing and managing devices. More important, it’s testing a novel approach to IoT security that could change the game enough to remove the brakes from IoT deployments.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
