Sample flash cards in this set:
|Internet Protocol: A set of communication protocols used for the internet and similar networks.
|Hyper Text Transfer Protocol: Used by Web Browsers and Web servers to exchange files through the WWW and intranets.
|HTTP over SSL: A secure form of HTTP that uses SSL to encrypt data before it is transmitted.
|Secure Sockets Layer: Secures messages being transmitted on the internet.
|Transport Layer Security: Ensures that messages being transmitted on the internet are private and tamper proof.
|File Transfer Protocol: Provides a generic method of transferring files. Can include security through usernames and passwords and allows file transfer between dissimilar computer systems.
|Trivial File Transfer Protocol: Similar to FTP. Lets you transfer files between a host and an FTP server.
|Secure File Transfer Protocol: A file transfer protocol that uses SSH to secure transfer data.
|Secure Copy: Associated with Unix/Linux networks and used to transfer files between systems.
|Simple Mail Transfer Protocol: Used to route electronic mail through the internetwork.
|Internet Message Access Protocol: An e-mail retrieval protocol designed to enable users to access their e-mail from various locations without the need to transfer messages or files back.
|Post Office Protocol 3: Part of the TCP/IP protocol suite and used to retrieve e-mail from a remote server to a local client over a TCP/IP connection.
|Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol: A method for automatically assigning addresses and other configuration parameters to network hosts.
|Domain Name System: A system that is distributed throughout the internetwork to provide address/name resolution.
|Network Time Protocol: Used to communicate time synchronization information between systems on a network.
|Network News Transport Protocol: The most widely-used protocol that manages notes posted on Usenet Newsgroups.
|Lightweight Directory Protocol: Used to allow searching and updating of a directory service.
|Simple Network Management Protocol: A protocol designed for managing complex networks.
|Remote Terminal Emulation: Allows an attached computer to act as a dumb terminal, with data processing taking place on the TCP/IP host computer.
|Secure Shell: Allows for secure interactive control of remote systems.
|Transmission Control Protocol: Provides services that ensure accurate and timely delivery of network communications between two hosts.
|User Datagram Protocol: A host-to-host protocol like TCP that does not include mechanisms for ensuring timely and accurate delivery.
|Internet Control Message Protocol: Works closely with IP in providing error and control information, by allowing hosts to exchange packet status information, which helps moving the packets through the internetwork.
|Internet Group Membership Protocol: A protocol for defining host groups.
