Abstract

In Chapter 1, the idea of a networked system was introduced as a mechanism intended to enable computers to be connected together so that resources could be shared. Resources in this context consist of processing power, computer memory, secondary data storage, the data itself and peripheral devices. This chapter covers both wide area networks (WANs) and local area networks (LANs), and then introduces the concept of distributed systems. It ends with a brief coverage of the security issues associated with networked systems.
