In answering this question, be sure to highlight both correct and incorrect dependencies (by an incorrect dependency, I mean one where many systems make assumptions that are not true, and as a result leave themselves vulnerable to attack). Be sure to discuss the domain name system and X.500.
The report must be submitted by 11:00 p.m. on October 29th. Students may receive an automatic extension of 48 hours total that may be applied across the four homework assignments (note that you do not get to use this to extend the due date of the research paper). If you turn in one of your assignment 8 hours late, then you will only have 40 hours remaining in extensions to use on subsequent assignments.
The report should be approximately 3 pages, or roughly 1200 to 1500 words.
To submit your report, please email a word or PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a lot to cover in so few words - so our advice is to write a first pass at your answer that is longer, and then edit out material that is redundant or not to the point. The use of tables can be very effective in conveying your ideas in a small area, but the tables must be integrated with your textual discussion, and not the only item in your submission.
