2. What are the three main functions of a secure VPN? (Choose three.)




data availability

data confidentiality

data integrity


3. Data confidentiality through a VPN can be enhanced through the use of which three encryption protocols? (Choose three.)








4. While monitoring traffic on a cable network, a technician notes that data is being transmitted at 38 MHz. Which statement describes the situation observed by the technician?

Data is being transmitted from the subscriber to the headend.

Data is flowing downstream.

Cable television transmissions are interfering with voice and data transmissions.

The system is experiencing congestion in the lower frequency ranges.

digital certificates






7. What two protocols provide data authentication and integrity for IPsec? (Choose two.)







8. Which two methods could an administrator use to authenticate users on a remote access VPN? (Choose two.)

digital certificates


hashing algorithms

Refer to the exhibit. A teleworker is connected over the Internet to the HQ Office. What type of secure connection can be established between the teleworker and the HQ Office?

a GRE tunnel

a site-to-site VPN

a remote-access VPN

the user must be at the office location to establish a secure connection


11. After conducting research to learn about common remote connection options for teleworkers, a network administrator has decided to implement remote access over broadband to establish VPN connections over the public Internet. What is the result of this solution?

A reliable connection is established at greater speeds than what is offered from dialup over POTS. Security is increased, but username and password information are sent in plain text.

The connection has increased security and reliable connectivity. Users need a remote VPN router or VPN client software.

Security and reliability are increased at a substantial loss in throughput, which is considered acceptable when supporting a single user environment.

Reliability and security are increased without the need for additional equipment, when compared to dialup connections using POTS.


12. Which two statements about DSL are true? (Choose two.)

users are on a shared medium

uses RF signal transmission

local loop can be up to 3.5 miles (5.5km)

physical and data link layers are defined by DOCSIS

user connections are aggregated at a DSLAM located at the CO


13. A company is using WiMAX to provide access for teleworkers. What home equipment must the company provide at the teleworker's site?

a WiMAX tower

a one-way multicast satellite

a WiMAX receiver

an access point connected to the company WLAN


14. A technician has been asked to configure a broadband connection for a teleworker. The technician has been instructed that all uploads and downloads for the connection must use existing phone lines. Which broadband technology should be used?






15. Which two Layer 1 requirements are outlined in the Data-over-Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS)? (Choose two.)

channel widths

access method

maximum data rate

modulation techniques

compression techniques

Refer to the exhibit. All users have a legitimate purpose and the necessary permissions to access the Corporate network. Based on the topology shown, which locations are able to establish VPN connectivity with the Corporate network?

Locations C, D, and E can support VPN connectivity. Locations A and B require an additional PIX Firewall appliance installed on the edge of the network.

Locations C and E can support VPN connectivity. Locations A, B, and D require an additional PIX Firewall appliance installed on the edge of the network.

Locations A, B, D, and E can support VPN connectivity. Location C requires an additional router on the edge of the network.

All locations can support VPN connectivity.


17. Which two features can be associated with the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) telecommunication technology? (Choose two.)

supports municipal wireless networks utilizing mesh technologies

covers areas as large as 7,500 square kilometers

supports point-to-point links, but not full mobile cellular-type access

connects directly to the Internet through high-bandwidth connections

operates at lower speeds than Wi-Fi, but supports many more users

Refer to the exhibit. A VPN tunnel has been established between the HQ Office and the Branch Office over the public Internet. Which three mechanisms are required by the devices on each end of the VPN tunnel to protect the data from being intercepted and modified? (Choose three.)

The devices must use a dedicated Layer 2 connection.

The devices must have the VPN client software installed.

The two parties must inspect the traffic against the same ACLs.

The two parties must establish a secret key used by encryption and hash algorithms.

The two parties must agree on the encryption algorithm to be used over the VPN tunnel.

The devices must be authenticated before the communication path is considered secure.


19. Which statement describes cable?

Delivering services over a cable network requires downstream frequencies in the 50 to 860 MHz range, and upstream frequencies in the 5 to 42 MHz range.

The cable subscriber must purchase a cable modem termination system (CMTS)

Each cable subscriber has dedicated upstream and downstream bandwidth.

Cable subscribers may expect up to 27 Mbps of bandwidth on the upload path.
