device transport key
The device transport key (formerly known as the master encryption key) is unique to a BlackBerry device. The BlackBerry device and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server use the device transport key to encrypt the message keys.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DMZ
A demilitarized zone (DMZ) is a neutral subnetwork outside of an organization's firewall. It exists between the trusted LAN of the organization and the untrusted external wireless network and public Internet.
DNS
A Domain Name System (DNS) is an Internet database that translates domain names that are meaningful and recognizable by people into the numeric IP addresses that the Internet uses.

gateway message envelope
The gateway message envelope protocol is a Research In Motion proprietary protocol that allows the transfer of compressed and encrypted data between the wireless network and BlackBerry devices. The protocol defines a routing layer that specifies the types of message contents allowed and the addressing information for the data. Gateways and routing components use this information to identify the type and source of the BlackBerry device data, and the appropriate destination service to route the data to.
