The Internet employs several communication protocols to achieve its functionality. The two most important Internet protocols are transmission
control protocol (TCP) and the Internet protocol (1P)-collectively referred to as TCP/IP. Developed in the early 1980s, the specifications for these important protocols were finalized during a period when their use was dominated by small groups of users who (appropriately) trusted each other. As a consequence, security was not built into the specification. As a result, today’s Internet lacks even the most basic mechanisms for security, such as authentication or encryption. These have been added as an afterthought,
and the fact that these features are not built in is becoming increasingly problematic.
