  12. Refer to the exhibit. The Fa0/2 interface on switch S1 has been configured with the switchport port-security mac-address 0023.189d.6456 command and a workstation has been connected. What could be the reason that the Fa0/2 interface is shutdown?

    CCNA Security Chapter 6 Exam Answer v2 001

    CCNA Security Chapter 6 Exam Answer v2 001

    • The connection between S1 and PC1 is via a crossover cable.
    • The Fa0/24 interface of S1 is configured with the same MAC address as the Fa0/2 interface.
    • S1 has been configured with a switchport port-security aging command.

  14. What is the behavior of a switch as a result of a successful CAM table attack?

    • The switch will forward all received frames to all other ports.*
    • The switch will drop all received frames.
    • The switch interfaces will transition to the error-disabled state.
    • The switch will shut down.
  15. What additional security measure must be enabled along with IP Source Guard to protect against address spoofing?

    • port security
    • BPDU Guard
    • root guard
    • DHCP snooping*
  16. What are three techniques for mitigating VLAN hopping attacks? (Choose three.)

    • Disable DTP.*
    • Enable Source Guard.
    • Enable trunking manually.*
    • Enable BPDU guard.
