View Full Version : Packet encryption and compression

06-02-2003, 10:37 AM
I am doing some research for a report that I have to do involving the comparison of WAN technologies, which also include the use of packet compression and encryption. I have come to a brick wall on the packet compresion and encryption technologies part (A+ doesn't cover packet compression and encryption, which is unfortunate). I need to find out what they are and how they work. If anyone knows of a website that they can point me towards, that would be of a great help. I need to know the source of the data to put in a biblography, to keep on the legal side of things.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't know if it is of any help, but Google (www.google.com) have several pages that seem to be the subject of 'packet compression'.

Good luck.

A fairly good spot to look at would be the Requests For Comments archive here (http://isc.faqs.org/rfcs) as they cover quite a few standards.
