Summary of Terms

A browser is used to locate and display Web pages via a software application. The most popular browsers are Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator.

A cookie is a unique message given to a web browser by a Web server. The remote server saves it's part of the cookie and the information it contains. The message is also stored by the browser in a text file called cookie.txt. A cookie always contains the IP address of the Web server that sent it.

The primary goal of cookie technology is to identify users. When you return to the Web server that first passed you a particular cookie, the server can query your browser to see if you hold a cookie from that server. If you do, that server can retrieve the information stored in the cookie that the two of you originally exchanged.

In the UK, using cookies to obtain personal information without consent is prohibited. Sites which use cookies should inform Web users that the site, or advertisements placed on the site, use cookies. An option to decline cookies should be provided. A site using cookies will usually invite you to provide personal information such as your name, e-mail address and interests.

IP (Internet Protocol)
A network protocol that provides routing services across multiple LANs and WANs that is used in the TCP/IP protocol stack. It is a technical standard which allows data to be transmitted between two devices.

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
A set of network protocols that includes Transport Control Protocol, a connection-orientated transport protocol, and Internet Protocol, a widely used routable network protocol.

TCP/IP is more than just these two protocols; it is an entire protocol stack that includes protocols for file transfers (FTP), terminal emulation services (Telnet), electronic mail (SMTP), address resolution (ARP and RARP) error control and notification (ICMP and SNMP).

Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is used in the Internet and is responsible for making sure messages get from one host to another and that the messages are understood.

IP Address
If you are connected to the Internet you have one. The IP address represents a unique computer connected to the Internet. It is a 32-bit address, segmented into four bytes. Each byte represents the decimal numbers 0-225, and the bytes are delimited by periods. For example, the following number consists of four bytes represented in decimal numbers and period delimiters separate each byte:

Web Server
