The internet was created based on a design, but that design has evolved, expanded and grown to support the billions of devices that power our economy, entertainment, and almost every part of our daily lives. Through standards and protocols like TCP/IP, information of any type can be converted into packets and sent through a fault tolerant network to anyone on the globe with a connection to the internet. This course covers the basic technologies that let the internet work.
This course is divided into a number of chapters. It starts with the basics of who built the internet and how it is managed. Then the course dives into how information is addressed and routed throughout the network using protocols like TCP/IP and technologies like DNS. Then, we look at how web servers work and the technoloiges that power them like HTTP and HTML. Finally, we look at security and encryption and how that works on the public internet.
