Dictionary of Security aspects

For those like me who do not understand clearly english words related to security, here they are defined by questions:

Confidentiality: Can prying eyes see it?
Authentication: Are you who you say you are?
Trust: Have I agreed to work with you?
Non-repudiation: Can you claim that you didn't send or receive it even if you did?
Integrity: Was it altered before I got it?
Authorization: Are you allowed to have it?
Auditing: Can I prove what happened?

(On "::Manageability::": “Security in Plain English”)
