Easy Networking and Security Worksheet

Question Description

I’m working on a computer science discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Q1: Explain briefly the six network topologies: P2P, Bus, Ring, Star, Hybrid and Mesh. (Use the video linked in the chapter slide for reference) 

Q2: Explain under what circumstances does the IP address of a machine change. If you had planned to track a user based on his/her IP address, what alternative option (that does not change) can you use? (Refer to the class lecture).

Q3: You are the Chief Information Security Officer of a company. Obviously, you are concerned about security the most. You need to make a choice between (a) hosting an information system on-premise, (b) use infrastructure as a service (Iaas), or (c) use software as a service on the public cloud. Explain what will you choose and why?
