What is a Common Internet File System (CIFS)

I need to describe what CIFS is, but even with the all mighty powerful Google I am not having very much luck. It redirects me to Server Message Block (SMB) and I don't think that is what I'm looking for.

If someone could please help me out here I would really appreciate it

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply.

I had found this link already but it says:

CIFS currently redirects here, even though CIFS and SMB do not exactly equate to each other.

Will this still work as a definition?

Does your class use text books? What did the teacher talk about in class? Maybe ask some other students where they found the info. You could even ask the teacher to help you with it.

There is a text book, but not with these terms in them. The idea of the class is to make us research via the internet (I include hak5 forums as research haha). Another opstical is that it is all an online program, so I cant exactly lean over and tap my neighbor on the shoulder lol. Also this is one of our finale projects so the instructor wont just give me the definition.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

OOOOOO.... I found it....

It is a file sharing protocol used widely for windows and unix systems, which is really an extension of the SMB protocol. That's why the search keep redirecting me.

Thanks for the help and suggestions!
