Which of the following best describes the process Alice should implement to meet this requirement?

  • Configuring the servers to enable remote wiping in case they fail a security check

  • Implementing a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to perform remote attestation of the servers during boot-up

  • Setting BIOS passwords to prevent unauthorized changes to hardware settings

  • Hashing system files at startup and sending the hashes to a central server for comparison
