Applied Knowledge Questions

The following questions are designed to test your knowledge of teleworker secure network design and sometimes build on knowledge found elsewhere in the book. You might find that a question has more than one possible answer. The answers provided in Appendix B are intended to reinforce concepts that you can apply in your own networking environment.

Questions 5, 6, and 7 are exercises for you and have no single answer.


What are some features to look for in software IPsec clients?


What are some features to look for in hardware IPsec clients?


Are there any physical security issues associated with hardware VPN devices in general?


Are all the host security protections recommended in the "Network Design Considerations" section required if you should provide mobile users with only traditional dial-up access direct to your organization?


Based on your understanding of this chapter, which teleworker design is most appropriate for your organization?


Do you anticipate the need for some hardware access if you think that the software design is most appropriate?


Look back over the teleworker-tuned threats in Table 15-1. Find at least one place where you disagree with my selections. Would it change anything about the teleworker design you might use?
