A network protocol is a description of digital message formats and the standards for transmitting those messages between computers or over IP/TCP networks. Protocols can use signals for managing communications as well as authentication methods, such as utilising a captcha or confirmation e-mail to verify users. The Generic Route Encapsulation (GRE) protocol 47 is used for creating virtual private networks between clients and client servers.
