A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.
Computer programming is the process of building and designing an executable computer program for accomplishing a specific computing task.
Cybersecurity, computer security or IT security is the protection of computer systems from theft of or damage to their hardware, software or electronic data, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.
A computer virus is a type of malicious software program ("malware") that, when executed, replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code.
A computer worm is a standalone malware computer program that replicates itself in order to spread to other computers.
Computing is any goal-oriented activity requiring, benefiting from, or creating computers.
Data transmission (also data communication or digital communications) is the transfer of data (a digital bitstream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.
In computer networking, encapsulation is a method of designing modular communication protocols in which logically separate functions in the network are abstracted from their underlying structures by inclusion or information hiding within higher level objects.
A data unit on an Ethernet link transports an Ethernet frame as its payload.
In computer networking, a Fibre Channel frame is the frame of the Fibre Channel protocol.
A frame is a digital data transmission unit in computer networking and telecommunication.
A frame check sequence (FCS) refers to the extra error-detecting code added to a frame in a communications protocol.
In telecommunication, frame synchronization or framing is the process by which, while receiving a stream of framed data, incoming frame alignment signals (i.e., a distinctive bit sequences or syncwords) are identified (that is, distinguished from data bits), permitting the data bits within the frame to be extracted for decoding or retransmission.
In information technology, header refers to supplemental data placed at the beginning of a block of data being stored or transmitted.
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) develops and promotes voluntary Internet standards, in particular the standards that comprise the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP).
Link Access Procedure for Modems (LAPM) is part of the V.42 error correction protocol for modems.
Malware (a portmanteau for malicious software) is any software intentionally designed to cause damage to a computer, server or computer network.
Metadata is "data that provides information about other data".
In computer science, overhead is any combination of excess or indirect computation time, memory, bandwidth, or other resources that are required to perform a specific task.
Payload is the carrying capacity of an aircraft or launch vehicle, usually measured in terms of weight.
In computer networking, Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) is a data link layer (layer 2) communications protocol used to establish a direct connection between two nodes.
In Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) terminology, a service data unit (SDU) is a unit of data that has been passed down from an OSI layer or sublayer to a lower layer.
Telecommunication is the transmission of signs, signals, messages, words, writings, images and sounds or information of any nature by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic systems.
Transport or transportation is the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another.
The term web service is either.
