DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 27 pages
Contains a list of selected acronyms and abbreviations for system and network security terms with their generally accepted or preferred definitions. The capitalization, spelling, and definitions of acronyms and abbreviations vary among publications. It is easy to understand why this happens. While some acronyms and abbreviations (e.g., WWW) have one universally recognized and understood definition within the domain of system and network security, others (e.g., IA, MAC) have multiple valid definitions depending upon the context in which they are used. This report is meant to help reduce these errors and confusion by providing the generally accepted or preferred definitions of a list of frequently used acronyms and abbreviations.
