Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an networking protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over TCP/IP.
Is is often use to verify a login/username against a central directory to allow/reject login and then maybe obtain more detailed information on the user (firstname, lastname, etc.)
Frame-based computer networking technology used in local area networks (LANs). Ethernet defines wiring and signaling for the physical layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control (MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized as IEEE 802.3.
It has become the most widespread LAN technology since the 1990s.
A bitmapped image format used internally by the Microsoft Windows graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file format on Windows.
Term used for a toner usage measurement on laser printing. For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
The Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an non-profit organisation involved in advance development of all technologies related to electricity.
An Intranet is a network using the same protocols of the public Internet but on a private scale, within an organization.
For example a company may have an intranet for sharing informations between employees. That information would not be accessible outside of the company.
The Bit depth describes the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for a color map.
1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black & white.
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of network protocols developed by Apple. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) but is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP.
The Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a non compressed bitmap image format, typically produced by scanners.
TIFF images typically include tags defining the characteristics of the image that is included in the file.
