CompTIA Security Plus Mock Test Q162

An organization does not want the wireless network name to be easily discovered. Which of the following software features should be configured on the access points?

A. SSID broadcast
B. MAC filter
C. WPA2
D. Antenna placement

Correct Answer: A
Section: Network Security

Explanation:
Numerous networks broadcast their name (known as an SSID broadcast) to reveal their presence.

Incorrect Answers:
B: A MAC filter is a list of authorized wireless client interface MAC addresses that is used by a WAP to block access to all unauthorized devices. It does not, however, make finding the
wireless network name any easier.
C: WPA2 deals with encryption, not the wireless network name.
D: This will increase or decrease signal strength and availability, but has nothing to do with the wireless network name being discovered.
