Question 1

What is the definition of a zero-day threat?



Answer : B

A zero-day threat is an attack that takes advantage of a security vulnerability that does not have a fix in place. It is referred to as a ''zero-day'' threat because once the flaw is eventually discovered, the developer or organization has ''zero days'' to then come up with a solution. A zero-day threat can compromise a system or network by exploiting the unknown vulnerability, and can cause data loss, unauthorized access, or other damages. Zero-day threats are difficult to detect and prevent, and require advanced security solutions and practices to mitigate them.Reference:

Question 2

You have been invited to a public cloud design and architecture session to help deliver secure east west flows and secure Kubernetes workloads.

What deployment options do you have available? (Choose two.)



Answer : B, D

To deliver secure east-west flows and secure Kubernetes workloads in a public cloud environment, you have two deployment options available: VM-Series and CN-Series.

VM-Seriesis a virtualized form factor of the Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall that can be deployed in public cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Oracle Cloud. VM-Series provides comprehensive network security and threat prevention capabilities for protecting your cloud workloads and applications from cyberattacks. VM-Series can also integrate with native cloud services and third-party tools to enable automation, orchestration, and visibility across your cloud environment.VM-Series supports various deployment scenarios, such as securing internet-facing applications, protecting hybrid connectivity, segmenting internal networks, and enabling secure DevOps12.

CN-Seriesis a containerized form factor of the Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall that can be deployed in Kubernetes environments. CN-Series provides granular network security and threat prevention capabilities for protecting your Kubernetes pods and namespaces from cyberattacks. CN-Series can also integrate with Kubernetes network plugins and services to enable dynamic policy enforcement, service discovery, and visibility across your Kubernetes clusters.CN-Series supports various deployment scenarios, such as securing ingress and egress traffic, enforcing microsegmentation, and enabling secure DevSecOps34.

What type of DNS record maps an IPV6 address to a domain or subdomain to another hostname?



Answer : C

An AAAA record is a type of DNS record that maps a domain name or a subdomain to an IPv6 address. IPv6 is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP) that uses 128-bit addresses to identify devices on the internet. An AAAA record is similar to an A record, which maps a domain name or a subdomain to an IPv4 address, but with a different format and length. An example of an AAAA record is:

example-website.com. IN AAAA 2001:db8::1234

In the example above, the record is made up of the following elements:

example-website.com.: The domain name or the subdomain that is mapped to an IPv6 address.

IN: The class of the record, which indicates that it is on the internet.

AAAA: The type of the record, which indicates that it is an IPv6 address record.

2001:db8::1234: The IPv6 address that is mapped to the domain name or the subdomain. The address is written in hexadecimal notation, with colons separating each 16-bit segment. Double colons (::) can be used to compress consecutive zero segments.
