CISSP quiz: Access control models and components

Test your knowledge of the CISSP exam's Access Control Domain by taking this practice quiz, which covers topics including access control models, one-time passwords, IPS/IDS and more.

This quiz is part of SearchSecurity's CISSP Essentials Security School lesson on the Access Control Domain within the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK).

Created by expert trainer Shon Harris of Logical Security to help students prepare for the Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP) exam, this quiz offers free questions similar to those that will be seen on test day.

Take the quiz now to assess your knowledge of the four core components of access control (identification, authentication, accountability, authorization); access control models, including DAC, MAC and RBAC; smart card technology and security tokens; one-time passwords; the Kerberos authentication standard; and intrusion detection and prevention systems.

This multimedia quiz features interactive components designed to resemble the interactive questions on the CISSP exam. Question types include multiple-choice/single-response, multiple-choice/multiple-response, drag-and-drop pair matching, and "hot zone" questions that require selecting the appropriate area in a graphical image. An 80% score is considered a passing grade. Use the question list menu just above the quiz area to go back to view previous questions or skip ahead.
