I want “The Devil’s Infosec Dictionary” to be funnier. And I wish the entry that mentions me — “Cryptography: The science of applying a complex set of mathematical algorithms to sensitive data with the aim of making Bruce Schneier exceedingly rich” — were more true.
In any case, I’ll bet the assembled here can come up with funnier infosec dictionary definitions. Post them as comments here, and — if there are enough good ones — I’ll collect them up on a single page.

Arizona Man Steals Bush’s Identity, Vetoes Bill, Meets with Mexican President
WASHINGTON, DC–Confusion and disbelief reigned at the White House after President Bush announced Monday that an Arizona man, known to authorities only as H4xX0r1337, stole his identity and used it to buy electronic goods, veto a bill, and meet with Mexican President Vicente Fox.
“This is incredibly frustrating,” Bush told reporters Tuesday. “Not only does this guy have my credit-card information, he has my Social Security number, all my personal information, and the launch codes for a number of ballistic intercontinental nuclear missiles. I almost don’t want to think about it.”
For those readers who don’t know, The Onion publishes fake funny news items.
