CSF1 – Unit 6 Networks and Internet: Addressing


Janeal Tyler, Computer Science Teacher

Unit 6 is designed to introduce you to how networks and the internet do addressing. You will learn what the protocols of the internet are and the balance between usability vs security.

At the beginning of every topic, students are STRONGLY encouraged to write down all of the vocabulary words and definitions found on the Introduction page.  These notes will help students a lot to complete assignments and tests.


Students are learning how to:

  • Evaluated the scalability and reliability of networks, by describing the relationship between routers, switches, servers, topology, and addressing
  • Give examples to illustrate how sensitive data can be affected by malware and other attacks
  • Recommend security measures to address various scenarios based on factors such as efficiency, feasibility, and ethical impacts
