This course covers the technologies and protocols used in the Internet, starting with the fundamental underlying transmission technologies and protocols. The design principles of Internet protocols, including the Internet Protocol (IP), Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), the Domain Name System (DNS), routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, BGP), and application-level protocols (FTP, TFTP, TELENET, SSH, HTTP, HTTPS, DNS, DHCP, SMTP) are explored. A set of laboratory exercises provide hands-on experience so as the students comprehend the operation of Internet Protocols, by capturing and analyzing traffic generated in IP networks.
