From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Internet Protocol
      (IP) The network layer for the TCP/IP
     protocol suite widely used on Ethernet networks, defined
     in STD 5, RFC 791.  IP is a connectionless,
     best-effort packet switching protocol.  It provides
     packet routing, fragmentation and re-assembly through
     the data link layer.
     IPv4 is the version in widespread use and IPv6 was just
     beginning to come into use in 2000 but is still not widespread
     by 2008.
