SaaS stands for Software As A Service or Security As A Service.


SLAT SLAT (Second Level Address Translation) is also known as nested paging. It is a hardware-assisted virtualization technology which makes it possible to avoid the overhead associated with software-managed shadow page tables. SLAT is implemented by AMD via the Rapid Virtualization Indexing (RVI) technology as well as by Intel via the Extended Page Table (EPT) ... Read more


Software constitutes the set of computer programming code alongside other utility and dependency files and tools which provide a unified application experience to end users and application programming interface (API) consumers. Software can be created in any computer programming language, markup language or scripting language by using one or more algorithms, and can generally be ... Read more

Standard deviation

A standard deviation (or σ) is a statistical metric (measure) of how dispersed the data is in relation to the mean. It if frequently used in machine learning data preparation and in machine learning model training.


In machine learning, standardization is a feature engineering technique by which the dataset features are re-scaled to achieve zero-mean value (μ=0) and unit standard deviation value (σ=1). Each x value in the dataset gets a corresponding x' standardized value, which is calculated as follows. , where μ is the x variable mean and σ is ... Read more

stratified cross validation

Stratified cross validation is a data validation technique used when splitting the ML dataset into k subsets, of which k-1 subsets are used as training subsets (folds) and one (1) is used as the test subset (fold). This process is repeated k times. Stratified cross validation uses stratified sampling in the dataset, in order to ... Read more

Strong Authentication

Strong Authentication (SA) Strong authentication assumes the usage of Multi-factor authentication (MFA) as a baseline, but goes beyond that with other authentication means. Strong authentication employs National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) assurance level-2 or assurance level-3. More details about strong authentication can be found at:
