INF325 Week 2 Discussion 1
Identify and discuss the two primary protocols that form the foundation of the Internet. Define and describe the purpose of DNS. Provide an example of what DNS does.
After reading chapter 8 of our text, the two primary protocols that form the foundation of the internet would be TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Instant Protocol) and the Protocol Architecture. TCP/IP is considered the internet-based standard and is needed to complete the framework for computer and systems communications [Sta13]. This type of protocol has layers as well that help to provide various communications across them to multiple networks. Protocol Architecture is considered the structure for the communication function at each layer of the structure. This can also be looked at as more than one single line of communication between the components that are in communication with each other from one server to another.
