Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Standard Image
Standard Description:
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specifies a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that can encrypt (encipher) and decrypt (decipher) information. Encryption converts data to an unintelligible form called ciphertext; decrypting the ciphertext converts the data back into its original form, called plaintext. The AES algorithm is capable of using cryptographic keys of 128, 192, and 256 bits to encrypt and decrypt data in blocks of 128 bits.

Ethernet (IEEE 802.3)

Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) Standard Image
Standard Description:
Ethernet is a physical and data link layer technology for local area networks (LANs). Ethernet was invented by engineer Robert Metcalfe. In late 1972, Metcalfe and his Xerox PARC colleagues developed the first experimental Ethernet system to interconnect the Xerox Alto, a personal workstation with a graphical user interface. Through the efforts of Digital, Intel and Xerox, 'DIX' Ethernet became the standard model for LAN's worldwide. Since then, speeds and media types have consistently increased. In April 2013, IEEE launched a study group to explore development of a 400 Gbps Ethernet standard to support booming demand for network bandwidth.

H.264

H.264 Standard Image
Standard Description:
H.264 is a next-generation video compression format. H.264 is also known as MPEG-4 AVC. Developed for use in high definition systems such as HDTV, Blu-ray and HD DVD as well as low resolution portable devices such as Sony’s PSP and Apple’s iPod, H.264 offers better quality at lower file sizes than both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 ASP (DivX or XviD).

Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI)

Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) Standard Image
Standard Description:
The iSCSI protocol describes a means of transporting SCSI packets over TCP/IP (see [RFC791], [RFC793],[RFC1035], [RFC1122]), providing for an interoperable solution which can take advantage of existing Internet infrastructure, Internet management facilities, and address distance limitations.

Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI)

Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) Standard Image
Standard Description:
SCSI is a standard for parallel interfaces that transfers information at a rate of eight bits per second and faster, which is faster than the average parallel interface. SCSI-2 and above supports up to seven peripheral devices, such as a hard drive, CD-ROM, and scanner, that can attach to a single SCSI port on a system's bus. SCSI ports were designed for Apple Macintosh and Unix computers, but also can be used with PCs. Although SCSI has been popular in the past, today many users are switching over to SATA drives.
