Perhaps the term "lobby" has been used elsewhere, but I usually see this
function described as "DMZ." I like "lobby" very much, because we have,
in international work, run into cultural sensitivities about the term DMZ.
People that have dealt with DMZ's on real territories have complained
about it as an unpleasantly warlike, or politically incorrect, term.
Non-US readers of firewalls, does "lobby" have any negative connotations
that might not be obvious in the states? If not, I at least am grateful
to Lars for bringing my attention to a term that might help some users
focus on security technologies/requirements rather than security politics.
