16. What is a DMZ? Is this really an appropriate name for the technology, considering the function this type of subnet performs? A DMZ, or Demilitarized Zone, in computer security is an unsecured section of a network between a secured trusted network and an untrusted outside network. This area is created to provide filtering for firewalls and servers. This is an appropriate name because neither the secured or outside network is fully in control but the name is slightly inaccurate because in a real demilitarized zone no attacks or battle take place. It is a no man’s land where nothing happens. 17. What questions must be addressed when selecting a firewall for a specific organization? 3

Elizabeth Faux CIT-181-Z04N: Principles of Information Security Chapter 6 Review Questions 3/4/2020 1. Which type of firewall technology offers the right balance between protection and cost for the organization? 2. What features are included in the base price? What features are available at extra cost? Are all cost factors known? 3. How easy is it to set up and configure the firewall? Does the organization have staff on hand that are trained to configure the firewall, or would the hiring of addition employees or contractors be required? 4. Can the firewall adapt to the growing network in the target organization? 18. What is RADIUS? What advantage does it have over TACACS? RADIUS stands for Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service. This is a computer connection system that centralizes the management of user authentication by placing the responsibility for authenticating each user on a central authentication server. The major advantages of RADIUS over TACACS is that it is a simpler and easier system to use and it is faster because it has fewer internal steps. It is not more secure. 19. What is a content filter? Where is it placed in the network to gain the best result for the organization? A content filter is a software program or hardware/software appliance that allows administrators to restrict content that comes into or leaves a network. The best placement for a content filter is between internal outgoing traffic and the external network. 20. What is a VPN? Why is it becoming more widely used? A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a private, secure network connection operated over a public and insecure network. It keeps the content of network messages hidden from observers on the public network. VPNs are becoming more widely used because the need for secure network connections is increasing as the use of networks continues to grow. People working from home or remote location and increased use of video and teleconferencing has increased the use of VPNs. 4

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
