This IDS defeating technique works by splitting a datagram (or packet) into multiple fragments and the IDS will not spot the true nature of the fully assembled datagram. The datagram is not reassembled until it reaches its final destination. It would be a processor-intensive task for IDS to reassemble all fragments itself, and on a busy system the packet will slip through the IDS onto the network. What is this technique called?


A.     IP Routing or Packet Dropping

B.     IDS Spoofing or Session Assembly

C.     IP Fragmentation or Session Splicing

D.     IP Splicing or Packet Reassembly

Anonymizer sites access the Internet on your behalf, protecting your personal information from disclosure. An anonymizer protects all of your computer’s identifying information while it surfs for you, enabling you to remain at least one step removed from the sites you visit. You can visit Web sites without allowing anyone to gather information on sites visited by you. Services that provide anonymity disable pop-up windows and cookies, and conceal visitor’s IP address. These services typically use a proxy server to process each HTTP request. When the user requests a Web page by clicking a hyperlink or typing a URL into their browser, the service retrieves and displays the information using its own server. The remote server (where the requested Web page resides) receives information on the anonymous Web surfing service in place of your information. In which situations would you want to use anonymizer? (Select 3 answers)


A.     Increase your Web browsing bandwidth speed by using Anonymizer.

B.     To protect your privacy and Identity on the Internet.

C.     To bypass blocking applications that would prevent access to Web sites or parts of sites that you want to visit.

D.     Post negative entries in blogs without revealing your IP identity.
