It is based on the learning content provided in the Intro to LAN room.
Task 1 - Introducing LAN Topologies
An interactive lab is provided to highlight each of the network topologies and their respective vulnerabilities. But besides the chance to break them, you are provided with nice graphical demos depicting the various topologies at work. The flag is only shown, after all the various networks are taken down.
Question 1: What does LAN stand for?
Local Area Network
Question 2: What is the verb given to the job that Routers perform?
Question 3: What device is used to centrally connect multiple devices on the local network and transmit data to the correct location?
Question 4: What topology is cost-efficient to set up?
Question 5: What topology is expensive to set up and maintain?
Question 6: Complete the interactive lab attached to this task. What is the flag given at the end?
Task 2 - A Primer on Subnetting
Get a basic idea about subnetting and it’s obvious advantages before moving to the next task.
Question 1: What is the technical term for dividing a network up into smaller pieces?
Question 2: How many bits are in a subnet mask?
Question 3: What is the range of a section (octet) of a subnet mask?
Question 4: What address is used to identify the start of a network?
Question 5: What address is used to identify devices within a network?
Question 6: What is the name used to identify the device responsible for sending data to another network?
Task 3 - The ARP Protocol
Check out how devices use the address resolution protocol to identify themselves on a network before proceeding to the next task.
Question 1: What does ARP stand for?
Address Resolution Protocol
Question 2: What category of ARP Packet asks a device whether or not it has a specific IP address?
Question 3: What address is used as a physical identifier for a device on a network?
Question 4: What address is used as a logical identifier for a device on a network?
Task 4 - The DHCP Protocol
Discover, how a device on a network without an IP address may request one from the DHCP server, and how that IP address get’s assigned to it.
Question 1: What type of DHCP packet is used by a device to retrieve an IP address?
Question 2: What type of DHCP packet does a device send once it has been offered an IP address by the DHCP server?
Question 3: Finally, what is the last DHCP packet that is sent to a device from a DHCP server?
Task 5 - Continue Your Learning: OSI Model
By finishing this room, you can head over and check out the next room in the module.
Question 1: Join the OSI Model room room.
