Internetworking with TCP/IP

via openHPI


The Internet connects more than half of the world's population. The revolutionary form of transmission of all kinds of data between places on this planet has made the network of networks the indispensable backbone of societies. The number of users has exploded to four billion people.

The speed of change is dramatic and for some, breathtaking. Many well-known and even more unknown personalities shaped the development of the Internet. However, the exciting success story also shows that there are dark sides to this development. What has become of the original hope for a democratization of communication? To what extent has the Internet provided access to better educational opportunities? How do large Internet companies and governments use the Internet? How can you safely communicate over this network?
