The real story of how the Internet became so vulnerable
Vinton G. Cerf, now a Google executive, says he wishes that he and fellow computer scientist Robert E. Kahn had been able to build encryption into TCP/IP from the beginning. Widely known as a “Father of the Internet,” Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. In December 1997, President Bill Clinton presented the U.S. National Medal of Technology to Cerf and his colleague, Robert E. Kahn, for founding and developing the Internet.
A internet moderna, da forma como a utilizamos hoje, baseada no protocolo TCP/IP, completou 30 anos, ontem, dia 1 de janeiro de 2013. Para celebrar a data, o Google convidou seu vice-presidente e evangelista da web, Vicent Cerf, para contar a história. Cerf foi um dos criadores do protocolo TCP/IP ao lado de Robert Kahn e Jon Postel.
