    Sure it’s not ELANs? My job involves network security, I’m not familiar with the term, ETAN.

    ELANs have evolved to where VLANs are more common today.

    They are talking about one of two things depending on the bent of their emphasis:
    (1) For policy and “import/export” issues, “ETANS” are science and technology policies associated with “ETAN” which is the European Technology Assessment Network. Here is their website:

    (2) Or, a very fast and flexible “electrically trainable analogy neural network” which usually is “ETANN” which allows for a trainable security system. If you are going for a technical position, this is probably what the human resources folks were trying to say.

    That might have some import/export issues associated with it because it is high level technology.

    Best of luck with your interview!
