8-bit is a measure of computer information generally used to refer to hardware and software in an era where computers were only able to store and process a maximum of 8 bits per data block. This limitation was mainly due to the existing processor technology at the time, which software had to conform with. This resulted in blocky graphics and slow...
Network identity (network ID) is a portion of the TCP/IP address that is used to identify individuals or devices on a network such as a local area network or the Internet. Network ID is designed to ensure the security of a network and related resources.
Network IDs are critical to the management and tracking of user resources, including data, applications, devices and equipment.

Single sign-on (SSO) - a more sophisticated version - synchronizes all applications and systems with a universal username and password combination and is a critical authentication component that prevents malicious network usage. Conversely, SSO is required for network system and application access. The reverse of SSO is single sign-off, which terminates user access.
