8 Bit Bytes Complement in TCP and UDP Connections

Question

UDP and TCP use the 1s complement for their check sums. Suppose you have the following three 8-bit bytes: 10011001, 01010010, and 01011001.
a. What is the 1s complement of the sum of these 8-bit bytes? Show all your work.
b. Why is it that UDP takes the 1s complement of the sum; that is, why not just use the sum?
c. With the 1s complement scheme, how does the receiver detect errors?
d. Is it possible that a l-bit error will go undetected? How about a two-bit error? (Note that although UDP and TCP use 16-bit words to compute the checksum, for this problem you are being asked to consider 8-bit summands.)

Summary

The question belongs to Computer Science, particularly to Networking and it is about 8-bit bytes complement in TCP and UDP. The difference in complement of the sums has been given in the solution.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
