QUESTION: 1

 Network layer firewall works as a

Solution:

Answer: b
Explanation: As you know, firewalls are available as hardware appliances, as software-only, or a combination of the two. In every case, the purpose of a firewall is to isolate your trusted internal network (or your personal PC) from the dangers of unknown resources on the Internet and other network connections that may be harmful. The firewall prevents unauthorized access to your internal, trusted network from outside threats.

QUESTION: 2

 Network layer firewall has two sub-categories as

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: Most network layer firewalls can operate as stateful or stateless firewalls, creating two subcategories of the standard network layer firewall. Stateful firewalls have the advantage of being able to track packets over a period of time for greater analysis and accuracy — but they require more memory and operate more slowly. Stateless firewalls do not analyze past traffic and can be useful for systems where speed is more important than security, or for systems that have very specific and limited needs. For example, a computer that only needs to connect to a particular backup server does not need the extra security of a stateful firewall.

QUESTION: 3

A firewall is installed at the point where the secure internal network and untrusted external network meet which is also known as __________

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: A firewall can be a PC, a router, a midrange, a mainframe, a UNIX workstation, or a combination of these that determines which information or services can be accessed from the outside and who is permitted to use the information and services from outside. Generally, a firewall is installed at the point where the secure internal network and untrusted external network meet, which is also known as a chokepoint.

QUESTION: 4

 Which of the following is / are the types of firewall?

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: A firewall can be a PC, a midrange, a mainframe, a UNIX workstation, a router, or combination of these. Depending on the requirements, a firewall can consist of one or more of the following functional components: Packet-filtering router

QUESTION: 5

A proxy firewall filters at?

Solution:

Answer: d
Explanation: The application firewall is typically built to control all network traffic on any layer up to the application layer. It is able to control applications or services specifically, unlike a stateful network firewall, which is – without additional software – unable to control network traffic regarding a specific application. There are two primary categories of application firewalls, network-based application firewalls and host-based application firewalls.

QUESTION: 6

A packet filter firewall filters at?

Solution:

Answer: c
Explanation: In computing, a firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.[1] A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another outside network, such as the Internet, that is assumed not to be secure or trusted.[2] Firewalls are often categorized as either network firewalls or host-based firewalls.

QUESTION: 7

What is one advantage of setting up a DMZ with two firewalls?

Solution:

Answer: c
Explanation: In a topology with a single firewall serving both internal and external users (LAN and WAN), it acts as a shared resource for these two zones.

QUESTION: 8

What tells a firewall how to reassemble a data stream that has been divided into packets?

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: source routing future.

QUESTION: 9

A stateful firewall maintains a ___________ which is a list of active connections?

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: Routing table with best performance

QUESTION: 10

Solution:

Answer: b
