Abstract

SECURITY ISSUES ON THE INTERNET by Carl Stephen Guynes Richard G. Vedder Michael T. Vanecek all of The University of North Texas College of Business Administration Business Computer Information Systems Department networks. Private individuals also provide funding through investments, either channeling them through one of the large telecommunications companies or directly to a substrata of data service providers. [2] The number of people currently accessing the Internet each day is increasing rapidly. Current estimates of the number of computers using the Internet infrastructure runs is between 20 and 30 million. [9] Because of the unregulated nature of the global inter-network getting an accurate count may be impossible. Background and Funding The Security Issue The Internet is a collection of networks originally paid for by the U.S. Department of Defense. Its purpose was to provide a communications infrastructure more resilient to attack than the public communications channels in the event of war.
