True

With Diffie-Hellman, asymmetric encryption is used to exchange __session__ keys.

Timing

In a(n) ____ attack, the attacker eavesdrops during the victim’s session and uses statistical analysis of the user’s typing patterns and inter-keystroke timings to discern sensitive session information.

True

In 1917, Gilbert S.Vernam, an AT&T employee, invented a polyalphabetic cipher machine that used a non-repeating random key.

True

The encapsulating security payload protocol provides confidentiality services for IP packets across insecure networks.

True

A(n) __man-in-the-middle__ attack attempts to intercept a public key or even to insert a known key structure in place of the requested public key.

True

Internet Protocol __Security__ is designed to protect data integrity, user confidentiality, and authenticity at the IP packet level.

False

ESP in __transport__ mode can be used to establish a virtual private network, assuring encryption and authentication between networks communicating across the Internet.

True

Julius Caesar was associated with an early version of the transposition cipher.

True

A(n) __distinguished__ name uniquely identifies a certificate entity, to a user’s public key.

False

A(n) __response__ attack is an attempt to resubmit a recording of the deciphered authentication to gain entry into a secure source.
