Cerf and Khan, inventors of the Internet

The invention of the Internet is credited to computer scientists Fenton Cerf and Bob Kahn who invented the Internet communication protocols in use today, a complex set of protocols and rules;[١] These protocols allowed for widespread use of the Internet, and these two worlds are referred to as the fathers of the Internet.[٢]

Teaching Inventors Cerf and Khan

Cerf holds a BA in Mathematics from Stanford University; Where he joined the College of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering in 1972, worked as an assistant professor at Stanford, and worked with Robert Khan at the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the US Department of Defense, to create the Transmission Control Protocol, which specifies the way data packets are transmitted over the Internet,[٣] Robert Kahn was an American electrical engineer; He received his engineering degree at City College of New York, his master’s and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and both won the Turing Prize, the highest-ranking computer science award for their pioneering work in networking including the design and implementation of the Internet’s basic communications protocols.[٤]

invention of the internet

Cerf and Khan developed a set of guidelines for transmitting data using the packet-switched method in the 1980s, which they called Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP). When it arrives, the Internet protocol acts as a coordinator for this stage, and determines the movement of information from the start point to the end point, and the experience of the scientist Kleinrock has proven that it is possible to make a single network between two computer systems, and thus the protocols invented by Serf and Khan became the backbone of an effective and large network It is an interconnected network, and they called it the Internet, and although other protocols were developed and used before, such as: File Transfer Protocols and Network Control Protocol, the Internet is built on the fundamentals of Serv and Khan.[١]
