What is a DMZ?
"DMZ" is short for demilitarized zone and is a military term meaning "is an area, usually the frontier or boundary between two or more military powers (or alliances), where military activity is not permitted, usually by peace treaty, armistice or other bilateral or multilateral agreement." In the world of computer networking and security the term DMZ refers to a network zone that sits between the internal (trusted network) and external (untrusted network). The external or untrusted network is typically the Internet (or an extranet) and the internal or trusted network would be the corporate intranet.
