Checksum

A checksum is a count of the number of bits in a transmission unit that is included with the unit so that the receiver can check to see whether the same number of bits arrived. If the counts match, it’s assumed that the complete transmission was received. Both TCP and UDP communication layers provide a checksum count and verification as one of their services.
