Networks and Data Communications;The primary objective of this assignment is to ensure that students learn the concepts of networking and;data communications. This includes topology concepts and related technologies that are inter-woven;together in an intricate manner. The manner and methods of data transmission, internetworking concepts;as well as protocols used in data communications.;TASK LIST;The assignment consists of three tasks, which require students to carry out research, write a report on;their findings as well as analyse the techniques used in data communication.;Task 2 - IPv4;The network layer protocol in the TCP/IP protocol suite is currently IPv4 (Internet Protocol, version 4).;IPv4 provides the host-to-host communication between systems in the Internet. Although IPv4 is well;designed, data communication has evolved since the inception of IPv4 in the 1970s. IPv4 has some;deficiencies that make it unsuitable for the fast-growing Internet.;To overcome these deficiencies, IPv6 (Internet Protocol, version 6), also known as IPng (Internetworking;Protocol, next generation) was proposed and is now a standard.;***Write a report on IPv4. Your report should include;- An introduction to IPv4;- Description of IPv4 with a diagram of the IPv4 architecture.;- Disadvantages and issues of IPv4 that led to the development of IPv6.;Your report should consist of a minimum of 750 words.;If the word count exceeds 10% of the stated word limit, 10% of the total marks of the paper will be deducted from the total marks obtained.;Task 3 - Data encryption Techniques;Data encryption is one of the main techniques used in network security. Data encryption can be;classified into 2 types Asymmetric Encryption and Symmetric Encryption. With the aid of diagrams;show how RSA Asymmetric and AES Symmetric encryptions work.;***Your report should include;- Introduction to Network Security;- Characteristics of RSA and AES encryption.;- Diagram of RSA Asymmetric encryption.;- Diagram of AES Symmetric encryption.;Your report should consist of a minimum of 750 words.;If the word count exceeds 10% of the stated word limit, 10% of the total marks of the paper will be deducted from the total marks obtained.
