The Handbook provides practical advice based upon experience, standards, and theory. It examines all aspects of Internet computing in wide-area and enterprise settings, ranging from innovative applications to systems and utilities, enabling technologies, and engineering and management. Content includes articles that explore the components that make Internet computing work, including storage, servers, and other systems and utilities. Additional articles examine the technologies and structures that support the Internet, such as directory services, agents, and policies.
The volume also discusses the multidimensional aspects of Internet applications, including mobility, collaboration, and pervasive computing. It concludes with an examination of the Internet as a holistic entity, with considerations of privacy and law combined with technical content.
