CISSP quiz: System architecture, security models, system evaluation

Test your knowledge of the CISSP exam's Security Architecture and Design domain by taking this practice quiz that covers topics including system architecture, security models and more.

This quiz is part of SearchSecurity's CISSP Essentials Security School lesson on the Security Architecture and Design domain within the Common Body of Knowledge, or CBK.

Created by expert trainer Shon Harris, CEO and founder of Logical Security, to help students prepare for the Certified Information Security Systems Professional certification exam, this quiz offers free questions similar to those that will be seen on test day.

This quiz will help you assess your knowledge of critical components within the Security Architecture and Design domain, including formal architectures, system architectures, security models and system evaluation. Topics covered include the trusted computing base, CPU, access control models (e.g., the Bell-LaPadula and Biba models) and more.

This multimedia quiz features multimedia components designed to resemble the interactive questions on the CISSP exam. Question types include multiple-choice/single-response, multiple-choice/multiple-response, drag-and-drop pair matching, and "hot zone" questions that require selecting the appropriate area in a graphical image. An 80% score is considered a passing grade. Use the question list menu just above the quiz area to go back to view previous questions or skip ahead.
