dlp definitionDLP may refer to any of the following:

1. DLP (Data loss prevention) to a computer is an approach to computer security in which a specialized system detects and prevents data breaches by monitoring sensitive data while it is in use.

2. DLP (Data level parallelism), also known as data parallelism, a technique for parallelizing data across multiple processors. It is achieved when different processors (or different threads on a single processor) perform the same task on different pieces of distributed data.

3. A DLP (discrete logarithm problem) is a problem in mathematics that is important in public-key cryptography.

4. DLP (Digital Light Processing) is a digital projection technology first developed at Texas Instruments in 1987, which uses an optical semiconductor known as a digital micromirror.
