EAP

 

Extensible Authentication Protocol

Explicit Congestion Notification

Editor

 

The Editor is a visual component within Wind River Workbench. It is typically used to edit or browse a file or other resource. Each Workbench perspective displays the Editor area even when no files are open. Modifications made in the Editor follow an open-save-close life cycle model. Multiple instances of an Editor type may exist within a Workbench window.

EGP

 

Exterior Gateway Protocol

egress filtering

 

Egress filtering is a method of securing a network by monitoring and filtering packets that leave an internal network to external networks (internet) via a router. Egress filtering makes a system less prone to attack from hackers by ensuring that spoofed packets never leave an internal network. See also ingress filtering.

EGRESS interface

 

The EGRESS interface is the mobile router's interface that moves, meaning, that may change its attachment point to the internet, in contrast with the INGRESS interface. The mobile node uses the EGRESS interface to properly register to the home agent. See also INGRESS interface.

element

 

An element is an entity that holds source analysis information of any kind, standing for a declaration or occurrence of a constant, preprocessor option, variable, function, method, type, or namespace in a parsed source code file.

enable

 

To enable a USB device is to bring it up in such a way that it becomes visible to and able to respond to a USB host.

encapsulation

 

The process of wrapping data in a protocol header. Specifically, the header and payload of one type of packet become the payload of another type of packet. For example, network traffic is wrapped in an Ethernet header before being transmitted over the network. When bridging dissimilar networks, the entire frame from one network is placed in the header used by the link layer protocol of the other network. See also tunnel mode.
