Hi,

The IETF OpSec WG has published an excellent overview document
of standards organizations addressing network security and their 
online security glossaries in:

ftp://ftp.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-opsec-efforts-00.txt
- "Security Best Practices Efforts and Documents"
- Abstract
   "This document provides a snapshot of the current efforts to define or
   apply security requirements in various Standards Developing
   Organizations (SDO)."

See also the companion document:

ftp://ftp.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-opsec-current-practices-00.txt
- "Operational Security Current Practices"
- Abstract
   "This document is a survey of the current practices used in today's
   large ISP operational networks to secure layer 2 and layer 3
   infrastructure devices.  The information listed here is the result of
   information gathered from people directly responsible for defining
   and implementing secure infrastructures in Internet Service Provider
   environments."


Recommended reading for anyone working on security issues.

Cheers,
- Ira
