In Computer Networks we study how information can be sent from one machine to another via communication network. We also study about various addresses like logical address (IP), physical address (MAC), service point address (Socket) etc.. How a machine can get IP address, and how packets move in network is also learnt. We also study about various models and protocols like- TCP, IP, ICMP, HTTP etc. In addition, basic cryptographic techniques and basics of firewalls are also learnt.
