The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is combination of different protocols at various layers. TCP/IP is the basic communication language or protocol of the internet and private networks either an intranet or an extranet. The TCP/IP suite has many design weaknesses so far as security and privacy are concerned. Some of these are protocol design weaknesses, whereas rest is defects in the software that implements the protocols. In this paper, the author focused mainly on protocol level issues, rather than implementation flaws.
