His main point was that in formal Formal Computer Science education, one 
comes across the OSI model:

Of course, nobody really uses OSI, real world people use the defacto 
TCP/IP model:

Both layers have a "Link Layer", a low hardware level layer where things 
like MAC addresses are handled.

Both layers place TLS encryption in a higher level layer.

Both models are educational models and don't always fit real-world 
implementations perfectly.
