    The following security protocol uses AES for encryption as well as EAP for authentication. Of the choices below, which answer is most likely correct?

    1. 802.1x
    2. L2TP
    3. MS-CHAPv1
    4. MS-CHAPv2
    5. WPAv1
    6. WPAv2
    7. WEP
    8. SSL

    Answer later.

    Maybe I should wait on this but it's been over 12 hours and it's the middle of the night where most of your live. The correct answer is:

    drumroll please...

    6: WPAv2

    1 is incorrect because 802.1x is used to pass EAP across networks that do not use the PPP protocol to provide authentication services.

    2 is incorrect because L2T2 is a combination of Microsoft's PPTP tunneling protocol and Cisco's Layer 2 Forwarding.

    3 and 4 are incorrect because CHAP versions 1 and 2 are authentication protocols that work with RAS servers on Microsoft networks.

    5 is incorrect because while both WPA versions 1 and 2 use 802.1x and EAP, only WPAv2 uses AES as well as EAP.

    7 is incorrect because only uses either 64 or 128 bit encryption.

    8 is incorrect because SSL uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection. The HTTPS protocol uses SSL for security.

    Hope this was a good question. It was taken right out of the 2005 objectives for the Network+ exam. More later.
