An authoritative primer on Internet technology, protocols, and applications, this unique guide is the first to baseline the Internet engineering effort and to define the parameters of the technical environment. It explains the contributing technologies of today's Internet in relative brief and accessible terms, outlining new directions already emerging, and surveying the imminent technologies which will shortly create an environment quite different from today's ``best effort'' paradigm.
