Storyboard Text

  • It's September 20, 2019, and it's Ted's first day of work at Area 51.
  • The raid is real! There are thousands of people outside!
  • Those teenagers are spreading information about the raid online, via a network of servers and devices called the internet!
  • If we disrupt the protocol, or directions, used to move information around, we can stop it from spreading further!
  • How can we stop it?
  • The protocol we're dealing with is the Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP. It handles small pieces of information called packets.
  • Let's get to work!
  • Sooo if we tamper with the protocol so that packets containing information about the raid are dropped and never reach their destination, we can stop the raid from growing!
  • Exactly! The destination of a packet is identified using an IP address, a unique number assigned to a device.
  • With the civilians gone, the aliens lived happily ever after...
