Security+ Exam Prep Question of the Week

Author: James Michael Stewart 7 December 2012 1,225 views No Comments

When network access control is used to maintain patch levels and configurations, a system returning from weeks in the field is often placed where?

  1. In quarantine with a remediation server
  2. In a VPN
  3. In an extranet
  4. In the intranet

The correct answer is 1.

The purpose of NAC is to automate the enforcement of patch/update application and required configuration settings. When a device is not in compliance with the stated current network requirements, which can occur due to a system being away from the network for weeks, a NAC service can isolate or quarantine until compliance is achieved.
