Discuss authentication methods

Part 1


Part of your network design for the U.S. Navy project will include a design of a plan that focuses on authentication issues. The overall design will be for a network that includes Windows server active directory and Unix servers. Discuss authentication methods that could be used in this environment. Do you think that biometrics could be useful for this situation?

Outline your ideas in a 3–5-paragraph posting. Study the postings of at least 2 other classmates, and respond to them with comments and questions. Ask for clarifications of their ideas if necessary.

Be sure to document your references using APA format.

Part 2


One of the concerns for the network project is ensuring secure e-mail and any documents sent through e-mail. Prepare a paper that explains how e-mail messages can be securely sent. The paper should include the features of secure e-mail and how secure e-mail works. Include a discussion of vulnerabilities involved in e-mail and how they can be countered. The paper should include the following:

  • The 4 main features of secure e-mail
  • Discussion of the 5-step process for handling secure e-mail with PGP and S/MIME
  • Discussion of the vulnerabilities of e-mail
  • Discussion of countermeasures that address the vulnerabilities

Be sure to document your references using APA format.
