or has been created and stored by another unit of an information processing system
File transfer protocol is a standard network protocol used to transfer files
between two computers on the internet which is built on a client-server architecture and utilises separate control and data connections between the client and server
Hardware abstraction layer is a layer of programming that allows a computer operating system to interact with a hardware device at a general or abstract
level rather than at a detailed hardware level

High speed broadband is a broadband service that offers bandwidth delivered at network speeds of 10 megabits per second and above. Unlike normal broadband connections which deliver bandwidth at network speeds ranging between 384kilobits per second and 4 megabits per second, basic high speed broadband packages allow Malaysians to experience high speed internet of up to 100 times faster than the usual rate wbile businesses will be able to have maximum speeds of up to 1,000 megabits per second
Memory management unit is a computer hardware component responsible for handling accesses to memory requested by the central processing unit
Next generation network is a broad terms used to describe key architectural
evolutions in telecommunication core and access networks. The general idea
behind the next generation network is that the network transports all information and services (voice, data, and all sorts of media such as video) by encapsulating these into packets, similar to those used on the internet.
Examples of NGN include telecommunication network equipments such as

internet multimedia subsystem, element management system, signaling gateway, media gateway and access gateway
An operating system is a software, consisting of programs and data, that runs on computers, manages computer hardware resources, and provides common services for execution of various application software. Operating system is the
most important type of system software in a computer system. Without an
operating system, a user cannot run an application program on their computer,
unless the application program is self-booting
P3 stands for personalisation preparation process which is a personal
computer-based application that runs in conjunction with Thales e-Security Cryptographic Modules (Crypto Module) for the generation of smart card data
for smart card personalisation

Polycarbonate datapage is the second page in the new ICAO compliant eĀ­Passport document. Polycarbonate was chosen as opposed to polyvinyl chloride, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or polyethylene terephthalate because of the ability to support laser engraving. The polycarbonate datapage will carry the passport holder’s detail, photo and the machine readable zone including other security features like kinegram, ultraviolet, invisible personal

Rivest, Shamir and Adleman is an algorithm for public-key cryptography. It is the first algorithm known to be suitable for signing as well as encryption, and was one of the first great advances in public key cryptography. It is widely used in electronic commerce protocols, and is believed to be sufficiently secure given sufficiently long keys and the use of up-to-date implementations
