Single Answer, Multiple Choice
What does Cisco recommend when implementing Cisco lightweight extensible authentication protocol (LEAP)?
- Server certificates
- Client certificate
- Strong passwords
- Password expiration
C. Strong passwords
Cisco LEAP should be deployed in conjunction with a strong password policy because it is highly vulnerable to brute force or dictionary attacks. Brute force and dictionary attacks are methods of attempting to guess passwords to gain access to a network. Strong passwords are passwords that are created to be difficult to guess.
LEAP is a password algorithm; therefore, server certificates do not apply.
Password expiration is not supported with Cisco LEAP. Therefore, this is an incorrect option.
