       pppd - Point to Point Protocol daemon

       Pppd provides the basic LCP, authentication support, and an NCP for
       establishing and configuring the Internet Protocol (IP) (called the IP
       Control Protocol, IPCP).

from "man pppd".  (ie, it's the program that connects your system to the net)
