Question No: 881 – (Topic 5)

A system administrator has noticed that users change their password many times to cycle back to the original password when their passwords expire. Which of the following would BEST prevent this behavior?

  1. Assign users passwords based upon job role.

  2. Enforce a minimum password age policy.

  3. Prevent users from choosing their own passwords.

  4. Increase the password expiration time frame.

Answer: B Explanation:

A minimum password age policy defines the period that a password must be used for before it can be changed.

Question No: 882 – (Topic 5)

During the information gathering stage of a deploying role-based access control model, which of the following information is MOST likely required?

  1. Conditional rules under which certain systems may be accessed

  2. Matrix of job titles with required access privileges

  3. Clearance levels of all company personnel

  4. Normal hours of business operation

Answer: B Explanation:

Role-based access control is a model where access to resources is determines by job role rather than by user account.

Within an organization, roles are created for various job functions. The permissions to perform certain operations are assigned to specific roles. Members or staff (or other system users) are assigned particular roles, and through those role assignments acquire the computer permissions to perform particular computer-system functions. Since users are not assigned permissions directly, but only acquire them through their role (or roles), management of individual user rights becomes a matter of simply assigning appropriate roles to the user#39;s account; this simplifies common operations, such as adding a user, or changing a user#39;s department.

To configure role-based access control, you need a list (or matrix) of job titles (roles) and the access privileges that should be assigned to each role.

Question No: 883 – (Topic 5)

Which of the following types of authentication packages user credentials in a ticket?

  1. Kerberos

  2. LDAP



Answer: A Explanation:

The basic process of Kerberos authentication is as follows: The subject provides logon credentials.

The Kerberos client system encrypts the password and transmits the protected credentials to the KDC.

The KDC verifies the credentials and then creates a ticket-granting ticket (TGT-a hashed form of the subject’s password with the addition of a time stamp that indicates a valid lifetime). The TGT is encrypted and sent to the client.

The client receives the TGT. At this point, the subject is an authenticated principle in the Kerberos realm.

The subject requests access to resources on a network server. This causes the client to request a service ticket (ST) from the KDC.

The KDC verifies that the client has a valid TGT and then issues an ST to the client. The ST includes a time stamp that indicates its valid lifetime.

The client receives the ST.

The client sends the ST to the network server that hosts the desired resource.

The network server verifies the ST. If it’s verified, it initiates a communication session with the client. From this point forward, Kerberos is no longer involved.

Question No: 884 – (Topic 5)

A group policy requires users in an organization to use strong passwords that must be changed every 15 days. Joe and Ann were hired 16 days ago. When Joe logs into the network, he is prompted to change his password; when Ann logs into the network, she is not prompted to change her password. Which of the following BEST explains why Ann is not required to change her password?

  1. Ann’s user account has administrator privileges.

  2. Joe’s user account was not added to the group policy.

  3. Ann’s user account was not added to the group policy.

  4. Joe’s user account was inadvertently disabled and must be re-created.

Answer: C Explanation:

Group policy is used to manage Windows systems in a Windows network domain environment by means of a Group Policy Object (GPO). GPO’s include a number of settings related to credentials, which includes password expiration. Because Anne was not prompted to change her password, it could only mean that her user account was not added to the group policy.

Question No: 885 – (Topic 5)

The system administrator is tasked with changing the administrator password across all 2000 computers in the organization. Which of the following should the system administrator implement to accomplish this task?

  1. A security group

  2. A group policy

  3. Key escrow

  4. Certificate revocation

Answer: B Explanation:

Group policy is used to manage Windows systems in a Windows network domain environment by means of a Group Policy Object (GPO). GPO’s include a number of settings related to credentials, such as password complexity requirements, password history, password length, account lockout settings.

Question No: 886 – (Topic 5)

Which of the following is an example of multifactor authentication?

  1. Credit card and PIN

  2. Username and password

  3. Password and PIN

  4. Fingerprint and retina scan

Answer: A Explanation:

A credit card is a memory card that functions a type of two-factor authentication. The card is something you have, and its PIN is something you know. Multifactor authentication requires a user to provide two or more different types of authentication factors to prove their identity.

Question No: 887 – (Topic 5)

A security administrator is reviewing the below output from a password auditing tool:


@pW1. S3cU4

Which of the following additional policies should be implemented based on the tool’s output?

  1. Password age

  2. Password history

  3. Password length

  4. Password complexity

Answer: C Explanation:

The output shows that all the passwords are either 4 or 5 characters long. This is way too short, 8 characters are shown to be the minimum for password length.

Question No: 888 – (Topic 5)

A company wants to ensure that all credentials for various systems are saved within a central database so that users only have to login once for access to all systems. Which of the following would accomplish this?

  1. Multi-factor authentication

  2. Smart card access

  3. Same Sign-On

  4. Single Sign-On

Answer: D Explanation:

Single sign-on means that once a user (or other subject) is authenticated into a realm, re- authentication is not required for access to resources on any realm entity. Single sign-on is able to internally translate and store credentials for the various mechanisms, from the credential used for original authentication.

Question No: 889 – (Topic 5)

In Kerberos, the Ticket Granting Ticket (TGT) is used for which of the following?

  1. Identification

  2. Authorization

  3. Authentication

  4. Multifactor authentication

Answer: C Explanation:

An authentication ticket, also known as a ticket-granting ticket (TGT), is a small amount of encrypted data that is issued by a server in the Kerberos authentication model to begin the authentication process. When the client receives an authentication ticket, the client sends the ticket back to the server along with additional information verifying the client#39;s identity. The server then issues a service ticket and a session key (which includes a form of password), completing the authorization process for that session.

In the Kerberos model, all tickets are time-stamped and have limited lifetimes. This

minimizes the danger that hackers will be able to steal or crack the encrypted data and use it to compromise the system. Ideally, no authentication ticket remains valid for longer than the time an expert hacker would need to crack the encryption. Authentication tickets are session-specific, further improving the security of the system by ensuring that no authentication ticket remains valid after a given session is complete.

Question No: 890 – (Topic 5)

A system administrator needs to ensure that certain departments have more restrictive controls to their shared folders than other departments. Which of the following security controls would be implemented to restrict those departments?

  1. User assigned privileges

  2. Password disablement

  3. Multiple account creation

  4. Group based privileges

Answer: D Explanation:

Group-based privileges assign privileges or access to a resource to all members of a group. Group-based access control grants every member of the group the same level of access to a specific object.
