Which method is a permissive security control in which only specified applications can run on an end host, while all other applications are prevented?
- application blocked lists
- application allowed lists
- application deep packets inspection
- application recognition and detection
|Explanation & Hint:
The method that represents a permissive security control in which only specified applications can run on an end host while all other applications are prevented is:
Application allowed lists.
In this approach, a list of approved or allowed applications is defined, and only those applications on the list are permitted to run. All other applications are blocked or prevented from executing on the end host. This is also sometimes referred to as an “application whitelist.”
