 +===== Introduction ===== 
  
 The Internet can be defined as a network of computers networks (indeed a network of networks rather than a network of single computers), distributed on all the globe, that rely on a set of communication protocols collectively known as TCP/IP, that allows communication,​ exchange, storage of information for it's connected users. Figure 1-1 illustrates the worldwide distribution of the Internet network and the fact that several, often redundant communication paths are available (symbolized by the colored lines in the figure) to connect two nodes of the network. The Internet can be defined as a network of computers networks (indeed a network of networks rather than a network of single computers), distributed on all the globe, that rely on a set of communication protocols collectively known as TCP/IP, that allows communication,​ exchange, storage of information for it's connected users.
