Glossary

  • CEH:
  • Compromised Servers:
  • CSRF:
    Common Source Route File
  • DDoS:
    Distributed Denial of Service (network attack; also seen as DDSA)
  • DoS:
  • DR:
    Is disaster recovery, which (to start) involves off-site data replication. The idea is to get your data center up and running as quickly as possible, even if it's in a temporary or minimal configuration, while your real data center is repaired or rebuilt following the disaster. Many service providers offer DR, and just like all services you'll want to test it now and then.
  • IoT Vulnerability Assessment:
  • Managed Hosting:
    An IT provisioning model in which a service provider leases dedicated servers and associated hardware to a single client. The equipment is at the hosting provider's facility and managed there by the service provider.
  • Managed Services:
    A managed services provider manages and assumes responsibility for assets or objects on behalf of a customer.
  • N+1 Redundancy:
    A measure of redundancy where additional “spare” components are available in the event of a failure in one of the main critical components. N is the “Needed” components and +1 represents the spare component that is on hand for emergency use. N+1 safeguards against lost productivity if one component fails.
  • OWASP:
    Open Web Application Security Project To evaluate existing software security practices use a systematic approach.
  • Pre-Actioin Fire Sprinkler:
    A fire sprinkler system that employs the basic concept of a dry pipe system in that water is not normally contained within the pipes. Water is held from piping by an electrically operated valve, known as a pre-action valve. Valve operation is controlled by independent flame, heat, or smoke detection. Two separate events must be required to initiate sprinkler discharge. First, the detection system must identify a developing fire and then open the pre-action valve. This allows water to flow into system piping, which effectively creates a wet pipe sprinkler system. Second, individual sprinkler heads must release to permit water flow onto the fire.
  • Private Cloud (Internal):
    A proprietary computing architecture that provides hosted services to a limited number of people behind a firewall.
  • Ransomware:
  • SAN:
    Storage Area Network.
  • Shared Hosting:
    Customers share server capacity.
  • SQL Injection Attacks:
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN):
    Extends a private network across a public network and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network.
  • Virtualization:
    Virtualization is a framework or methodology of dividing the resources of a computer into multiple execution environments, by applying one or more concepts or technologies such as hardware and software partitioning, time-sharing, partial or complete machine simulation, emulation, quality of service, and many others.
  • Virus Infections:
  • VMware Backup:
    VMware backup is the copying of data on a virtual machine (VM) in a VMware environment to prevent data loss. VMware backup, and virtual server backup in general, is a common challenge for storage and backup administrators.
  • WAF:
    Web Application Firewall
  • WAVA:
    Web Application Vulnerability Assessment
  • Worms:
  • XSS:
    Cross-Site Scripting
