Which of the following statements about multi-or authentication is true?
It uses a Key Distribution Center (KDC).
It protects a computer from malicious software such as worms.
It involves two or more methods as part of the authentication process.
It is a process in which a client process and a server are required to prove theiridentities to each other before performing any application function.

Mutual authentication is a process in which a client process and server are required to prove their identities to each other before performing any application function. The client and server identities can be verified through a trusted third party and use shared secrets as
in the case of Kerberos v5. The MS-CHAP v2 and EAPTLS authentication methods support mutual authentication. Answer option A is incorrect. Kerberos authentication uses a Key Distribution Center (KDC).Answer option B is incorrect. The multi-or authentication method cannot protect a computer from malicious software such as worms.

Identify the S-Video port in the image given below.
S-Video, also known as Y/C video, stands for Super-Video. It is a technology for video transmission.
Using this technology, the video is transmitted into two separate signals. One is used forcolor, and the other for brightness. Sometimes S-Video signals are considered as a type of component video signal. However, its quality is inferior to other complex component video schemes such as RGB. This technology produces sharper images than those produced by composite video, which carries the entire set of signals in a single line. For using S-Video, the device sending the signal must support SVideo output and the device receiving the signal needs to have an S-Video input jack.
