White pages

A directory service for locating individuals by name (by analogy with the telephone directory). The Internet supports several databases that contain basic information about users, such as electronic mail addresses, telephone numbers and postal addresses. These databases can be searched to get information about particular individuals. See Knowbot, Netfind, whois, X.500, finger.

(1) (Directory Information Base) Also called "white pages," a database of names in an X.500 system.

(2) (Device Independent Bitmap) An internal data structure in Windows for creating graphics that are not tied to a particular output device. DIBs contain more information than a BMP file so that they can be displayed or printed on any device. When stored on disk, however, they become BMP files. See BMP file.

(3) (Dual Independent Bus) An enhanced bus architecture from Intel first implemented on the Pentium Pro chip. It provided two buses; one for connecting the CPU to system memory and another for the cache. The DIB enabled Pentium II CPU bus speeds to jump from 66 MHz to 100 MHz.

Web white pages

websites that provide searchable databases of individual email addresses and other "people-finding" tools. They typically include residential telephone numbers and street addresses. However, unlike phone company white pages, there is no single source for this information, some of them charge a small fee, and you may have to try several sources. There is no guarantee that a person's email address is available in any of these directories. Following are some of the popular white pages sites. See Web yellow pages and Web search engines.
