This chapter is supplemental to and coordinated with the Access Control chapter in the CISSP Prep Guide. The fundamentals of access control are covered in Chapter 2 of the CISSP Prep Guide at a level commensurate with that of the CISSP Examination.
This chapter includes advanced material relative to trusted networks, remote access, biometrics, database security (including relational and object models), operating system security, Kerberos, single sign-on, authentication (including mobile authentication) and Enterprise Access Management (EAM).
It is assumed that the reader has a basic knowledge of the material contained in Chapter 2 and has the CISSP Prep Guide available to provide background information for the advanced questions pertaining to access control. These questions and answers build upon the questions and answers covered in Chapter 2 of the CISSP Prep Guide.
