Phew… How many ACRONYMS?

Here i am putting up list of new acronyms learned while studying/preparing for SNRS. Don't know how many more will follow & when dictionary will run out of acronyms but for now they seem to be coming along steadily apart from regular (not so acronym anymore) TCP,UDP, IP, FTP, SSH, HTTPS, SMTP, SNMP etc

So here we go
AAA ► Authentication, Authorization, Accounting
AES ► Advanced Encryption Standard 
CBAC ► Context Based Access Control
CEF ► Cisco Express Forwarding
CSACS ► Cisco Secure Access Control Server [aka ACS]
CPPr ► Control Plane Protection
CoPP ► Control Plane Policing
CIFS ► Common Internet File System 
CRL ► Certification Revocation List
DPD ► Dead Peer Detection 
DH ► Diffie-Hellman 
DMVPN ► Dynamic Multipoint VPN
DES ► Data Encryption Standard
3DES ► Triple-DES
EAP ► Extensible Authentication Protocol
                 {{ Challenge Response based }}
    EAP-MD5 ► EAP Message Digest 5
    EAP-MSCHAPv2 ► EAP-Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol
    LEAP ► Cisco Lightweight EAP
                 {{ Tunneling methods }}
    PEAP ► Protected EAP
    EAP-FAST ► EAP Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunnelling
    EAP-TTLS ► EAP Tunneled Transport Layer Security
                 {{ Cryptographic based }}
    EAP-TLS ► EAP Transport Layer Security
                 {{ Generic Token based }}
    EAP GTC ► EAP-Generic Token Card
ESP ► Encrypted Security Payload
FPM ► Flexible Packet Matching
GPI ► Granular Protocol Inspection
GRE ► Generic Route Encapsulation
