Security protocols and encryption protocols

Anyone have a good resource for getting complete details on these? This is not my strongest area and I know the exam will hit this:

As far as I know now the security protocols supported by XP are:
PAP, SPAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP, MS-CHAPv2 (strongest)

WEP, WPA (with SP2)

Every man dies, not every man really lives.

    I havent seen many questions on protocols on the exam... just one.

    You'll wanna know what the strongest forms are....



    And how they are used. Really basic you wont need to spend more than 10-15mins learning it.

    I think the biggest thing to know is EAP is required when you use smart cards and that MS-CHAPv2 is the highest in security. I studied the security protocols until I knew them every direction but only had one question on it.

    I agree you don't need to know them inside out untill you hit 70-291, just know those 2 mentioned above and you should be fine.

    I don't think I even had 1 question on them when I took mine.. icon_eek.gif

    Lol, way to put it more bluntly... I tried to be subtle.

    be sure to know the defaults though, and what protocol is used with smart cards (EAP-TLS).

    and remember its better to know too much rather than too little.
