Essay Questions

41. (p. 182-183) Explain a simple way to combat boot disks.
Physically remove or disable them in the BIOS, floppy, and CD-ROM drives.

Difficulty: Hard

42. (p. 201-203) Explain very simply how biometrics works
Biometrics takes an analog item, such as a picture of a retina, and converts it to a number that can then be compared to a previously stored number. If these numbers are the same, then access will be granted.

Difficulty: Hard

43. (p. 203) What is multiple-factor authentication?
Multiple-factor authentication is simply the combination of two or more types of authentication. Three broad categories of authentication can be used: what you are (for example, biometrics), what you have (for instance, tokens), and what you know (passwords and other information). Two-factor authentication combines any two of these before granting access. An example would be a card reader that then turns on a fingerprint scanner—if your fingerprint matches the one on file for the card, you are granted access. Three-factor authentication would combine all three types, such as a smart card reader that asks for a PIN before enabling a retina scanner. If all three correspond to a valid user in the computer database, access is granted.

Difficulty: Hard

44. (p. 197) What are the types of fire, and their suppression methods?
Class A-common combustible; wood, paper, cloth, plastics; water or dry chemical. Class B-Combustible liquids, petroleum products, organic solvents; C02 or dry chemical. Class C-Electrical wiring and equipment, power tools; CO2 or dry chemical. Class D-Flammable metals, magnesium, titanium; copper metal or sodium chloride.

Difficulty: Hard

45. (p. 181-182) Why is the statement “Physical access negates all other security measures” true?
No matter how impenetrable the firewall and intrusion detection system (IDS), if an attacker can find a way to walk up to and touch a server, he can break into it. Physical access to a corporation’s systems can allow an attacker to perform a number of interesting activities, starting with simply plugging into an open Ethernet jack. The advent of handheld devices with the ability to run operating systems with full networking support has made this attack scenario even more feasible.

Difficulty: Hard
