    • Describe the typical components of a modern network that contain an access control process.
    • Describe the various forms of operating systems that are components of a modern network, including:
      • Memory (real, virtual, and management).
      • Object based versus object oriented.
      • Privileged and non-privileged states.
      • Processes and threads, along with their management (National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense, 2013).
    • Explain the role that virtual and real memory play in the overall security profile of an operating system.
    • Discuss the role of cloud computing and virtualization in operating system security.
    • Explain how operating system and application security impact the overall security of modern, including:
      • DMZs and proxy servers.
      • Honeypots and honeynets.
      • Firewalls and VPNs.
      • IDS/IPS.
