Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The attack type that sends database commands from external web pages to execute on the back-end database is called:

    • A.

      DBA substitution

    • B.

      SQL injection

    • C.

      Malware attack

    • D.

      DB Flooding

    Correct Answer
    B. SQL injection
    Explanation
    SQL injection is the correct answer because it involves sending malicious SQL commands through external web pages to execute on the back-end database. This attack allows the attacker to manipulate or retrieve data from the database, bypassing any security measures in place. It is a common and dangerous attack that can lead to unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security vulnerabilities.

    The SecureSphere Web App Firewall automatically learns application URLs, directories, HTTP methods, parameters, cookies, form fields, and expected user behavior. This patent pending capability is called:

    • A.

      Attack Aware

    • B.

      SQL Barrier

    • C.

      SecureApp

    • D.

      Dynamic Profiling

    Correct Answer
    D. Dynamic Profiling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Dynamic Profiling. The SecureSphere Web App Firewall has a patent pending capability called Dynamic Profiling, which allows it to automatically learn various aspects of an application such as URLs, directories, HTTP methods, parameters, cookies, form fields, and expected user behavior. This enables the firewall to better understand and protect the application against potential attacks.

    Because SecureSphere integrates with vulnerability assessment tools, it can instantly patch vulnerabilities. This eliminates the window of exposure and impact of manual fix-and-test methods.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    SecureSphere integrates with vulnerability assessment tools, allowing it to quickly identify and patch vulnerabilities. This capability eliminates the time gap between identifying a vulnerability and fixing it manually, reducing the window of exposure to potential attacks. Additionally, manual fix-and-test methods can be time-consuming and may not catch all vulnerabilities, whereas SecureSphere's integration with vulnerability assessment tools ensures a more comprehensive and efficient approach to vulnerability management. Therefore, the statement is true.

    What is the main purpose of the Imperva Application Defense Center (ADC)?

    • A.

      Update sales and marketing documents with the latest SecureSphere features

    • B.

      Catch attacks as they occur and phone DB administrators to notify them that a threat exists

    • C.

      Analyze attacks as they occur and automatically distribute defense solutions to SecureSphere installations

    • D.

      Handle customer support calls on configuring SecureSphere

    Correct Answer
    C. Analyze attacks as they occur and automatically distribute defense solutions to SecureSphere installations
    Explanation
    The main purpose of the Imperva Application Defense Center (ADC) is to analyze attacks as they occur and automatically distribute defense solutions to SecureSphere installations. This means that the ADC actively monitors and analyzes incoming attacks in real-time, and then deploys appropriate defense measures to protect the SecureSphere installations. This proactive approach helps to ensure the security and integrity of the systems, as well as minimize the impact of potential threats.

    What is the name of the Imperva product that globally tracks and blocks known malicious users and sites?

    • A.

      EarlyWarning Service (EWS)

    • B.

      ThreatJammer 3000

    • C.

      ThreatRadar Reputation Services

    • D.

      PingBlocker

    Correct Answer
    C. ThreatRadar Reputation Services
    Explanation
    ThreatRadar Reputation Services is the correct answer as it is the Imperva product that globally tracks and blocks known malicious users and sites. The other options, EarlyWarning Service (EWS), ThreatJammer 3000, and PingBlocker, are not mentioned or known for performing this specific function.

    SecureSphere cannot be “dropped in” to an existing, running network — it must first be manually trained before it can begin working.

    • A.

      True. SecureSphere requires days or weeks to learn application traffic and prevent attacks.

    • B.

      False. SecureSphere immediately stops attacks with multiple layers of defense including attack signatures, user reputation controls, protocol validation and bot mitigation rules. SecureSphere also learns application structure and user behavior; this patented learning capability is completely automated and takes effect after several days of initial deployment.

    Correct Answer
    B. False. SecureSphere immediately stops attacks with multiple layers of defense including attack signatures, user reputation controls, protocol validation and bot mitigation rules. SecureSphere also learns application structure and user behavior; this patented learning capability is completely automated and takes effect after several days of initial deployment.
    Explanation
    SecureSphere does not require manual training before it can begin working. It immediately stops attacks using multiple layers of defense such as attack signatures, user reputation controls, protocol validation, and bot mitigation rules. It also has an automated learning capability that learns application structure and user behavior, which takes effect after several days of initial deployment.
