Third edition of the Internet from the Inside book is out
The Internet from the Inside: Architecture of the Internet Ecosystem.

Sending a letter, browsing cinema listings, viewing latest news, commenting on friends’ photos, booking flight tickets – every day, hundreds of millions of people across the globe do all this and much more, without even thinking about a complex infrastructure behind the ordinary actions.

How can valuable information be protected on the web? Where is data transferred and how is it done? How were protocols, technologies and connections created that form the foundation of the World Wide Web, and why is everything so complicated while being so simple?

An actual guide to the internet architecture, The Internet from the Inside offers answers to this and many other questions.

The book will be of interest to network operators, developers and administrators of internet services and applications, as well as all those willing to learn more about internet technologies.

The book tells about internet architecture and technologies, focusing on its main components such as global addressing and IP protocol, domain name system, and global internetwork routing. It also examines aspects and principles of the World Wide Web operation, as well as issues of standardization, development and security of the main internet systems, and explores architectural evolution of the internet as a whole and the related issues of introducing new protocols and technologies.

Particular focus is placed on the internet ecosystem and its history, as well as major internet decision-making organizations.

Due to changes and additions regularly made to each new edition of the book, the work remains relevant. The e-book is available on the foundation’s website.
