Just as TCP/IP is a central protocol for the Internet, HTTP is a central protocol for the web. They are both critical for web networking. Web Protocols and Practice is the most authoritative and comprehensive guide to the Web's technical underpinnings. Authored by legendary AT&T Labs researcher Bala Krishnamurthy and renowned Web networking expert Jennifer Rexford, this book offers exceptionally thorough coverage of core Web protocols-including the most detailed discussion of HTTP /1.1 and its relationship to TCP/IP networking ever presented. The authors begin with a broad overview of the evolution of the Web, including its naming infrastructure, HTML document language, and HTTP message exchange protocol. Next, they introduce the inner workings of clients, proxies, and servers, as well as scripts, handlers, search engines, cookies, and authentication. The heart of the book is a detailed discussion of the core Web protocols DNS, TCP/IP, and HTTP. An essential resource for all networking and Internet professionals, and for all developers building Internet applications.
