What is the Internet?


What is the internet2 l.jpg

What is the Internet?

  • A global network of networks

What is the Internet?

  • A global network of networks, including their wires, fibers, and routers (switches)

  • The computers connected to each network


What is the internet6 l.jpg

What is the Internet?

  • A global network of networks, including their wires, fibers, and routers (switches)

  • The computers connected to each network

  • A book of “IP” addresses that tells each computer where all the others are


Slide7 l.jpg

IP???

  • IP = Internet Protocol – routes the packets

  • TCP = Transmission Control Protocol arrives in reliable order

    TCP/IP describes the rules for transmitting small packets of bits (0s and 1s) from one computer to another.


Let s try it l.jpg

Let’s Try It


What s in the packets l.jpg

What’s in the packets…

Here are the minimum things each needs:

  • An address (IP number)

  • An addressee, e.g., [email protected]

  • Something to indicate order or sequence

  • A portion of the message (Why not all?…)

    How would that work here?…


Delivering the message l.jpg

Delivering the message…

How would that work here in LC 24?…

  • We need an address: 24.2.9.7

    And right away we’re stuck. What does this mean? How do we find out?…

  • We need a DNS server, which we’ll use in reverse… going from “number” to “name”


Delivering the message11 l.jpg

Delivering the message…

How would that work here in LC 24?…

  • We need an address: 24.2.9.7

    And right away we’re stuck. What does this mean? How do we find out?…

  • We need a DNS server, which we’ll use in reverse… going from “number” to “name”


The lc dns server l.jpg

The LC “DNS” server…

Our hypothetical LC addresses, by analogy with IP addresses, are quadruples:

LC (room) # . side of room . row # . seat #

where left/right side (from front) is 1/2, row is from the front, and seat is from the aisle.

Our hypothetical LC addresses, by analogy with IP addresses, are quadruples:

where left/right side (from front) is 1/2, row is from the front, and seat is from the aisle.

So where is 24.2.9.7?…

Now…

  • You try it….


Pieces of the message l.jpg

Pieces of the message…

  • Splenda works

  • As well

  • As sugar

  • For packet

  • Switching


Slide16 l.jpg

Each computer on the Internet is uniquely identified so that it can be addressed.

It may have:

  • a name – for example, www.albany.edu

    But it must have:

  • an IP address – 169.226.1.110


Slide17 l.jpg

The translation or resolution of the name to the address is done by a “domain name server” (DNS), the white pages of the Internet.

There are thousands of DNSs around the world, and they all know that:

169.226.1.110 = www.albany.edu

and vice versa.


Slide18 l.jpg

The domain name has 2 parts – the host and top level domain (TLD).

www.albany.edu

albany = host

(really University at Albany)

.edu = top level domain= education


Domain categories l.jpg

Domain categories

Other top level domain categories in the U.S.:

  • .com – businesses

  • .edu – educational institutions

  • .gov – government agencies

  • .mil – military units

  • .net – networks

  • .org – non-profit organizations


The authority for domains l.jpg

The authority for domains…

ICANN - Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers

Newest TLDs:

.mail – a site for anti-spam community

Next question l.jpg

Next question…

When was the Internet?


When was the internet l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1961 – WOW!!

Len Kleinrock (then at MIT) developed theory of “packet switching,” describing how data could behave on a highway where collisions were not only allowed but expected!!


When was the internet23 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1965 – Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) in the Pentagon funded the first experimental connection between a computer at MIT and one in California… over a 1200 bps phone line.


When was the internet24 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1966-69 – ARPA contract awarded to an architectural consulting firm to design and build “ARPANET,” the direct ancestor of today’s Internet, with a starting configuration of four nodes!


When was the internet25 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

  • 8/30/69UCLA

  • 10/1/69SRI

  • 10/29/69

    1st message, UCLA to SRI

  • 11/1/69UCSB

  • 12/69University of Utah


When was the internet26 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

By 1971, there were 23 “hosts” (computers) at 15 “nodes” in CA, UT, IL, MI, PA, & MA


When was the internet27 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1972 @ as connector for userid and address

1973 – 75% of all ARPANET traffic is email

1975 – first mailing list, MsgGroup, forerunner of listservs

4/12/79 –the “emoticon” :-) smiles


When was the internet28 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1980 – first accidental virus shuts down ARPANET

1984 – number of hosts breaks 1000, William Gibson coins “cyberspace”

1987 – number of hosts breaks 10,000

1989 – number of hosts breaks 100,000

1992 – number of hosts breaks 1,000,000


When was the internet29 l.jpg

When was the Internet?


When was the internet30 l.jpg

When was the Internet?

1990 – original ARPANET shut down

1991 – Tim Berners-Lee invents World Wide Web, CERN releases software

1993 – First browser

1994 – Arizona law firm sends first “spam,” first Pizza Hut takes orders online
