I know to study cryptology, port usage, remote access, etc...

Anything I should be particularly wary about?

    I didn't get any questions on remote access (except for the obligatory VPN questions), specific password crackers (John the Ripper, etc.), specific port scanners (SAINT, etc.) or the CA structures (bridge CA, etc.).

    There was quite on a bit on port mappings (DNS=53, etc.); user education; certificates; examples of confidentiality, integrity, authentication; L2TP, IPSec and PPTP; and attacks (espectially the types of ICMP attacks).

    Make sure you understand the importance of user education and making users knowledgeable.

    Make sure you know what a digital signature is for and how it is created.

    I got one question on the specific areas of responsibility for ISAKMP. I'd recommend looking that that a 2nd time.

    That's about it. Good luck!

    know that the wording is going to be pretty quirky at times. My advice: zip through the exam by answering all the questions you know first and marking those that give you pause. Then come back and finish it off, knowing that you have plenty of time left.

    This test is not hard, just badly worded...

    Best of luck :)
