Cisco SDM (Security Device Manager) is a Web-based device management tool for Cisco routers that can simplify router deployments and reduce ownership costs. Select two protocols from the following to enable Cisco SDM to pull IPS alerts from a Cisco ISR router. (Choose two)






Answer: B D


We must also enable HTTP or HTTPS on the router when we enable SDEE. The use of HTTPS ensures that data is secured as it traverses the network.

Question 7

Refer to the exhibit. You are the network security administrator responsible for router security. Your network uses internal IP addressing according to RFC 1918 specifications. From the default rules shown, which access control list would prevent IP address spoofing of these internal networks?



A. SDM_Default_196

B. SDM_Default_197

C. SDM_Default_198

D. SDM_Default_199


Answer: C


Click on each access-list, in the SDM_DEFAULT_198 you will see something like this


To mitigate IP address spoofing, do not allow any IP packets containing the source address of any internal hosts or networks inbound to our private network. The SDM_DEFAULT_198 denies all packets containing the following IP addresses in their source field:

+ Current network (only valid as source address)

+ Any local host addresses (

+ Any reserved private addresses (RFC 1918, Address Allocation for Private Internets)

+ Any addresses in the IP multicast address range (

Note: addresses in this block refer to source hosts on “this” network.

For your information, we will apply this access list to the external interface of the router.
