QUESTION 1
An RSA key pair consists of a public key and a private key and is used to set up PKI. Which statement applies to RSA and PKI?

A. The public key must be included in the certificate enrollment request.
B. The RSA key-pair is a symmetric cryptography.
C. It is possible to determine the RSA key-pair private key from its corresponding public key.
D. When a router that does not have an RSA key pair requests a certificate, the certificate request is sent, but a warning is shown to generate the RSA key pair before a CA signed certificate is received.

Answer: A

Explanation:
An RSA key pair consists of a public key and a private key. When setting up your PKI, you must include the public key in the certificate enrollment request. After the certificate has been granted, the public key will be included in the certificate so that peers can use it to encrypt data that is sent to the router. The private key is kept on the router and used both to decrypt the data sent by peers and to digitally sign transactions when negotiating with peers.

QUESTION 2
Refer to the exhibit.


Which three descriptions of the configuration are true? (Choose three.)

A. The configuration is on the NHS.
B. The tunnel IP address represents the NBMA address.
C. This tunnel is a point-to-point GRE tunnel.
D. The tunnel is not providing peer authentication.
E. The configuration is on the NHC.
F. The tunnel encapsulates multicast traffic.
G. The tunnel provides data confidentiality.

Answer: A,F,G


QUESTION 3
Which two values you must configure on the Cisco ASA firewall to support FQDN ACL? (Choose two.)

A. a DNS server
B. an FQDN object
C. a policy map
D. a class map
E. a service object
F. a service policy

QUESTION 4
Which set of encryption algorithms is used by WPA and WPA2?

A. Blowfish and AES
B. CAST and RC6
C. TKIP and RC6
D. TKIP and AES

Answer: D


QUESTION 5
What are two enhancements in WCCP V2.0 over WCCP V1.0? (Choose two.)

A. support for HTTP redirection
B. multicast support
C. authentication support
D. IPv6 support
E. encryption support

Answer: B,C

Explanation: WCCP V2.0 supports the following enhancements to the WCCP V1.0
Protocol:
* Multi-Router Support.
WCCP V2.0 allows a farm of web-caches to be attached to more than one router.
* Multicast Support.
WCCP V2.0 supports multicasting of protocol messages between web-caches and routers.
* Improved Security.
WCCP V2.0 provides optional authentication of protocol packets received by web-caches and routers.
* Support for redirection of non-HTTP traffic.
WCCP V2.0 supports the redirection of traffic other than HTTP traffic through the concept of Service Groups.
* Packet return.
WCCP V2.0 allows a web-cache to decline to service a redirected packet and to return it to a router to be forwarded. The method by which packets are returned to a router is negotiable.
