Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

A network administrator is responsible for configuring a newly-installed switch to heighten its security posture. Understanding the risks associated with the initial setup, which action should the administrator take to protect against attacks that exploit switch default configurations?

  • Implement strict segmentation policies that separate switch ports into various subnetworks based on departmental requirements.

  • Apply stringent access policies on all new switch ports to limit cross-network communications.

  • Configure all unused switch ports to dynamically decide whether to use trunk or access mode based on connected device type.

  • Reassign all unused switch ports to an isolated VLAN that serves no hosts and is configured to not forward traffic.
