(iii) Initiates all internet activities requested by clients and monitors them
(iv) prevents outsiders from accessing IP addresses within the intranet
a. i, ii
b. i, ii, iii

b. a software which runs on a special reserved computer on the intranet
c. a stripped down computer connected to the intranet
d. a mainframe connected to the intranet to ensure security

29 By encryption of a text we mean
a. compressing it
b. expanding it
c. scrambling it to preserve its security
d. hashing it

30 Encryption is required to
(i) protect business information from eavesdropping when it is transmitted on internet
(ii)efficiently use the bandwidth available in PSTN
(iii) to protect information stored in companies databases from retrieval
(iv) to preserve secrecy of information stored in databases if an unauthorized person
retrieves it
a. i and ii
b. ii and iii
c. iii and iv
d. i and iv

31 Encryption can be done
a. only on textual data
b. only on ASCII coded data
c. on any bit string
d. only on mnemonic data

32 By applying permutation (31254) and substitution by 5 characters away from current
character (A ?? F , B ?? G etc..) the following string ABRACADABRA becomes
a. FGWCAAADRBF
b. RABCAAADRBF
c. WFGHFFFIWGF
d. None of the above

33 The following ciphertext was received. The plaintext was permuted using
permutation (34152) and substitution. Substitute character by character +3 (A ?? D,
etc). The plain text after decryption is: Cipher text : PDLJDLXHVQC
a. MAIGAIUESNZ
