confidential files over the network. The files must not be altered by unauthorized
users as the files traverse the network.

accounting department. You also need to be able to monitor the traffic on the
network and report to IT management the percentage of bandwidth used for each
protocol. Your action to be?
A. Use IPSec encryption

Hello Kunalclk,

That question looks like it's from an exam. I recently had very good luck with the free test simulators on www.examcollection.com. They have literally thousands of virtual exam sims that are very accurate.

I'm pretty sure it's Kerberos, since it's a windows network and you want to be able to monitor the traffic (port 88). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerberos_(protocol)

Yes, IPSEC (A answer) is correct. To monitor traffic Microsoft Network Monitor can be used.
IPSec allows for
Authentication Header (AH) which tells that packet sent from client wasn't tampered but data is not encrypted
Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) tells the same but additionally encrypts data, so it cannot be intercepted (because of unreadable content)

Regards,
Krzysztof
