There are three levels of information access: no access, read access, and read-write access. Use a business of your choice to answer the criteria for this assignment.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:Identify the business you have selected.Create five (5) cases in which the no-access level should be applied within the selected business environment. Explain the reasons for no access.Provide five (5) cases in which the read-access level should be applied within a business environment. Explain the reasons for read access.Provide five (5) cases in which the read-write level should be applied within the selected business. Explain the reasons for read-write access.Determine the type of access levels you would provide to a contractor or consultant.Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment.Note:Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. CIS 560 Case Study 2: Cisco’s Remote AccessGo to Cisco’s Website and read, “How Cisco IT Provides Remote Access for Small Offices and Teleworkers”, located at http://bit.ly/MkvlbA. According to the study, an IDC forecast from December 2007, expected the global mobile worker population to increase from 758.6 million in 2006 to more than 1.0 billion in 2011. Cisco had a significant number of telecommuting employees and faced three challenges: provide network access features that cannot be supported on a software VPN client, automate and simplify router provisioning and updates, and enable a scalable VPN solution to support up to 30,000 workers.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:1.Evaluate the deployment cost savings realized by Cisco, and determine if it was significant.2.Analyze how the solution deployed by Cisco improved:a.employee productivityb.satisfactionc.retention3.Discuss how Cisco was able to achieve VPN scalability to support thousands of users.4.When thousands of employees telecommute and work in virtual offices, there are benefits to the environment. Discuss the environmental impact of the Cisco telecommuting and virtual offices solution.5.Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

 CIS 560 Assignment 2: Single Sign-On Access Some business and organizational network infrastructures consist of multiple systems from the same or different vendors to provide, conduct, process, and execute various business functions. Some employees must access one or more of these systems using valid access credentials (username and password). Logging in and out of each system whenever access is desired can become a problem for most users. Businesses and organizations have resorted to using Single Sign-On (SSO) for user authentication and authorization.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:Analyze at least five (5) problems experienced by employees in an enterprise where Single Sign-On (SSO) has not been implemented.Some businesses and organizations use Active Directory (AD) to provide SSO access to the enterprise. Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of using AD for SSO access.Some businesses and organizations use Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LADP) to provide SSO access to the enterprise. Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of using LADP for SSO access.Compare and contrast a Kerberos-based SSO configuration to a smart card based configuration in terms of:configurabilityestablished standardsimplementation challengescostUse at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment.Note:Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.

In some cases it is required, especially when personally identifiable information is being transmitted. Credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, online purchases, business orders, and so on must all be transmitted over secure communication channels. The Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) provides the most widely used secure communications technology. PKI relies on encryption.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:
  1. Compare and contrast symmetric encryption to asymmetric encryption.
  2. PKI uses digital certificates to encrypt / decrypt data. Analyze the process of encrypting and decrypting data using a digital certificate.
  3. Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using digital certificates.
  4. Evaluate the challenges related to public and private key management when using PKI.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
