The following questions are designed to test your knowledge of supporting-technology design considerations 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.
In the transparent cache deployment, WCCP is generally used to redirect web queries from a router to the cache. Assuming the cache is on a dedicated router interface and is properly filtered with ACLs, what is the most likely way a determined attacker could try to compromise the cache?
Considering the techniques used to load balance security devices in this chapter, are there any unique considerations when attempting to load balance IPsec devices?
In a teleworker environment, are there any unique security considerations for WLANs?
Why are some of the 802.1x concerns discussed in Chapter 9 lessened in a WLAN environment?
Are there any security considerations for using IPsec and IPT together?
