Overview

The TCP/IP protocol suite is changing dynamically to reflect advances in technology and can be considered to represent the "protocol for the new millenium." The ABCs of TCP/IP reflects these advances and includes new coverage on:

  • Secure Web transactions
  • Practical subnetting examples
  • Security threats and countermeasures
  • IPSec
  • ICMP utilization and threats

This comprehensive reference provides professionals with an overview of the TCP/IP suite and details its key components. While many books on the subject focus on the details and minutae of TCP/IP, this book covers applications, methods, concepts, and economics associated with the TCP/IP stack. It illustrates how to leverage investments in TCP/IP and how to economize network operations. The ABCs of TCP/IP examines: the manner by which various protocols and applications operate, addressing issues, security methods, routing, network design constraints, testing methods, troubleshooting, management issues, and emerging applications. It also includes separate chapters focusing on security threats and methods useful for overcoming these threats.
