The TCP/IP protocol is becoming the world standard for network and computer communications. The number of TCP/IP applications on the Internet and in corporate networks is continually growing, with a resulting increase in network vulnerability.

This chapter also describes, in a general way, which security mechanisms are used for specific security services.
