AH

 

The Authentication Header protocol provides connectionless integrity, data origin authentication, and an optional anti-replay service. Unlike ESP, AH secures parts of the IP header such as the source and destination addresses.

alarm

 

An alarm is an abnormal condition and is thus a special case of a condition.

ALG

 

The Application Level Gateway is a module used together with NAT to support protocols that embed address information in the payload data. An ALG is sometimes also called application proxy.

alpha blending

 

Alpha blending is a process where multiple graphics planes are combined to produce the displayed image. Often the planes are blended with varying degrees to produce visual effects of translucency.

apartment-threading model

 

Describes how interface calls are made to an object and defines the rules for passing interface pointers between threads. In the Apartment-threading model, one or more threads in a process can use OLE, and calls to OLE objects are synchronized by OLE. Objects can only be called from the thread that created them.
