Alice and Bob know nothing about these packets and TCP/IP communication since their software takes care of it all. Alice only sees the transmitted data before it is split into packets, and Bob only sees the reassembled message on his screen. 3 Security only came later The original TCP/IP protocols were very elementary Like the Internet itself, TCP/IP didn't fall out of the sky overnight.

For the latter Mallory will need a protocol analyser that converts the intercepted streams into data. Apparatus of this type can be purchased quite legally from various suppliers (for test and maintenance purposes only, of course).
