Computer Security in the Virtual World
In this Webcast, the presenter describes about computer security in the virtual world. The virtual world exists online on networks, peer to peer, from computer to computer, from server to server; basically anything that's not in the tangible world, but the world of binary code and packets. Binary code is a series of ones and zeroes. It's basically the language that a computer understands and can hear. Packet switching was a technology that, in one sense, allowed the Internet to exist, in order to move large pieces of information by sending small packets of information that are then assembled at the receiving end, instead of trying to send everything at once.
