In 1973, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

(DARPA) initiated a research program to investigate techniques and

technologies for interlinking packet networks of various kinds. The

objective was to develop communication protocols which would allow

networked computers to communicate transparently across multiple,

linked packet networks. This was called the Inter-netting project

and the system of networks which emerged from the research was

known as the "Internet." The system of protocols which was

developed over the course of this research effort became known as

the TCP/IP Protocol Suite, after the two initial protocols

developed: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet

Protocol (IP).
