Question #1 Topic 1

Which of the following is NOT an integral part of VPN communication within a network?

  • A. VPN key
  • B. VPN community
  • C. VPN trust entities
  • D. VPN domain
Reveal Solution Hide Solution   Discussion  

Correct Answer: A
✑ VPN key (to not be confused with pre-shared key that is used for authentication).
✑ VPN trust entities, such as a Check Point Internal Certificate Authority (ICA). The ICA is part of the Check Point suite used for creating SIC trusted connection between Security Gateways, authenticating administrators and third party servers. The ICA provides certificates for internal Security Gateways and remote access clients which negotiate the VPN link.
✑ VPN Domain - A group of computers and networks connected to a VPN tunnel by one VPN gateway that handles encryption and protects the VPN Domain members.
✑ VPN Community - A named collection of VPN domains, each protected by a VPN gateway.

Question #2 Topic 1

Two administrators Dave and Jon both manage R80 Management as administrators for ABC Corp. Jon logged into the R80 Management and then shortly after,
Dave logged in to the same server. They are both in the Security Policies view. From the screenshots below, why does Dave not have the rule no.6 in his
SmartConsole view even though Jon has it his in his SmartConsole view?

  • A. Jon is currently editing rule no.6 but has Published part of his changes.
  • B. Dave is currently editing rule no.6 and has marked this rule for deletion.
  • C. Dave is currently editing rule no.6 and has deleted it from his Rule Base.
  • D. Jon is currently editing rule no.6 but has not yet Published his changes.
Reveal Solution Hide Solution   Discussion  

Correct Answer: D
When an administrator logs in to the Security Management Server through SmartConsole, a new editing session starts. The changes that the administrator makes during the session are only available to that administrator. Other administrators see a lock icon on object and rules that are being edited. To make changes available to all administrators, and to unlock the objects and rules that are being edited, the administrator must publish the session.

Question #3 Topic 1

Vanessa is firewall administrator in her company; her company is using Check Point firewalls on central and remote locations, which are managed centrally by
R80 Security Management Server. One central location has an installed R77.30 Gateway on Open server. Remote location is using Check Point UTM-1 570 series appliance with R71. Which encryption is used in Secure Internal Communication (SIC) between central management and firewall on each location?

  • A. On central firewall AES128 encryption is used for SIC, on Remote firewall 3DES encryption is used for SIC.
  • B. On both firewalls, the same encryption is used for SIC. This is AES-GCM-256.
  • C. The Firewall Administrator can choose which encryption suite will be used by SIC.
  • D. On central firewall AES256 encryption is used for SIC, on Remote firewall AES128 encryption is used for SIC.
Reveal Solution Hide Solution   Discussion   5

Correct Answer: A
Gateways above R71 use AES128 for SIC. If one of the gateways is R71 or below, the gateways use 3DES.

Question #5 Topic 1

Which of the following is NOT a SecureXL traffic flow?

  • A. Medium Path
  • B. Accelerated Path
  • C. High Priority Path
  • D. Slow Path
Reveal Solution Hide Solution   Discussion  

Correct Answer: C
SecureXL is an acceleration solution that maximizes performance of the Firewall and does not compromise security. When SecureXL is enabled on a Security
Gateway, some CPU intensive operations are processed by virtualized software instead of the Firewall kernel. The Firewall can inspect and process connections more efficiently and accelerate throughput and connection rates. These are the SecureXL traffic flows:
Slow path - Packets and connections that are inspected by the Firewall and are not processed by SecureXL.
Accelerated path - Packets and connections that are offloaded to SecureXL and are not processed by the Firewall.
Medium path - Packets that require deeper inspection cannot use the accelerated path. It is not necessary for the Firewall to inspect these packets, they can be offloaded and do not use the slow path. For example, packets that are inspected by IPS cannot use the accelerated path and can be offloaded to the IPS PSL
(Passive Streaming Library). SecureXL processes these packets more quickly than packets on the slow path.

Question #6 Topic 1

Which of the following Automatically Generated Rules NAT rules have the lowest implementation priority?

  • A. Machine Hide NAT
  • B. Address Range Hide NAT

Question #8 Topic 1

In R80 spoofing is defined as a method of:

  • A. Disguising an illegal IP address behind an authorized IP address through Port Address Translation.
  • B. Hiding your firewall from unauthorized users.
  • C. Detecting people using false or wrong authentication logins
  • D. Making packets appear as if they come from an authorized IP address.
Reveal Solution Hide Solution   Discussion  

Correct Answer: D
IP spoofing replaces the untrusted source IP address with a fake, trusted one, to hijack connections to your network. Attackers use IP spoofing to send malware and bots to your protected network, to execute DoS attacks, or to gain unauthorized access.
