What is a protocol?


In the computing space, protocols are essentially a set of rules and/or procedures that establish how data transfers should be made between devices using telecommunication networks.

As information is being sharing between different machines, for example, a set of computers, protocols help insure that data is treated equally when it is being shared and once it reaches its final destination.

In a very basic way, we could say that protocols exist to make interoperability be part of the digital world.
