AES (Advanced Encryption Standard)
The Client is a computer program that runs on terminal devices of a network and is connected to the server. It is able to use some services of the server and serves as an interface for communication between the program and the server.
Coda is a distributed file system that is based in one network and allows many computers to work with it simultaneously. The collected data is saved on a number of servers which adjust and assimilate the date between each other. You can then access the data with local and mobile computers.
Command line parameters
The CPU usage shows the percentage of the calculating time of a computer. It describes the current state of the processors of a computer. If the computer needs a lot of calculating time for the coping of ongoing processes the CPU usage is very high. So the CPU usage is low if the calculating time is low.
Drag & Drop Upload
FAUbox base folder
The folder rights are describing which rights every single member has to the folder. The owner or admin for example is able to delete top level folders, send invitations, remove members and send links to other users. Meanwhile folder-members without quota cannot do anything except for reading and downloading documents they have access to.
HTTP is the short term for ‘hypertext transfer protocol’. It’s a protocol that divides different requests into independent transactions and is used for the data transmission to the application layer of a computer network. It is often used for the transmission of websites from the World Wide Web into a web browser.
Multi source download
It describes the process of concurrently downloading file parts from multiple sources for a single file. By using this download method the client is able to reduce the time required to download the file.
NAT traversal connection
A path is a string of characters that denotes a file, a directory, or other resources on a computer system, depending on the platform. The path length is then composed of the actual filename and the path of the directories.
The path will look like this:
Windows : d:\Program Files\ImageMagik\Photo\DSC.jpg
Mac/Linux : /home/nutzername/medien/photo/Ausspieler/REDT/DSC.jpg
SHA (Secure Hash Algorithm)
SHA is a cryptologic hash-function that is used for data processing and the checking of the integrity of an information. The algorithm leads to a precised test value of digital data. This test value serves as a digital signature and guarantees the integrity of the data.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
UNC (Universal Naming Convention)
The Universal Naming Convention is a network path one can use to get access to the network of a computer without having to use a drive letter. It makes the direct connection to a network drive unnecessary.
On a Windows system it is possible to compress files and folders to ZIP folders. These ZIP folders have a space-saving file format and can be transferred very fast. Because of the compression the bytes that are included in the file are reduced while the content stays the same. To change the file to the original state the ZIP file has to be extracted.
