I recently created email security glossary out of the smaller one that was 
included in mta-signatures paper (its now > 5 times larger with almost 300 
terms and abbreviations!), it includes primarily email and cryptography 
abbreviations and terms but number of related network and dns terms are 
also there. This glossary will be shared among several of my projects and 
websites, but currently its first official location is:

Feel free to check this out and if you find any terms that you do not 
believe are accurately described, let me know.

P.S. I sent the above info on Friday on couple other mail lists, but forgot
to do this on nanog even though I did mention here before that I was working 
on this glossary when we were talking about botnets and even used portions
of text that were sent to me when defining that term (and I would like to 
thank all those  who answered me and helped with the glossary).
