    Hey Hey,

    If you are looking for definitions and explanations of terms, then you are definately looking for Webopedia. It's a great site..

    Examples:

    Telnet Last modified: Monday, July 26, 2004

    (tel´net) (n.) A terminal emulation program for TCP/IP networks such as the Internet. The Telnet program runs on your computer and connects your PC to a server on the network. You can then enter commands through the Telnet program and they will be executed as if you were entering them directly on the server console. This enables you to control the server and communicate with other servers on the network. To start a Telnet session, you must log in to a server by entering a valid username and password. Telnet is a common way to remotely control Web servers.

    router Last modified: Tuesday, August 03, 2004

    (row´ter) (n.) A device that forwards data packets along networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISP’s network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect.
    Routers use headers and forwarding tables to determine the best path for forwarding the packets, and they use protocols such as ICMP to communicate with each other and configure the best route between any two hosts.

    Very little filtering of data is done through routers.


    Some of the definitions are rather basic... but they'll at least give you the general idea.

    Peace

    Hi

    For additional information, on top of webopedia, you should check wikipedia[1].

    Example telnet. After the description of what it is, you'll find
    [quote]
    There are three main problems with Telnet, making it a bad choice for modern systems from the point of view of security:

    * Commonly used telnet daemons have several vulnerabilities discovered over the years, and probably several more still exist.
    * Telnet does not encrypt any data sent over the connection (including passwords), and so it is trivial to eavesdrop on the communications and use the password later for malicious purposes.
    * Telnet lacks an authentication scheme that makes it possible to ensure that communication is carried out between the two desired hosts, and not intercepted in the middle.
    [/qoute]

    For some examples what you could do, about 10 years ago, see [2]


    Cheers

    Yeah, I thought it would be a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the terminology of one of a few Internet Security Glossaries.
    But I think you will be better off by running any acronym through this site http://homepage.mac.com/antallan/gista.html
