Almost 2 years ago I took the CISSP. I have to admit I have no test taking abilities, and the proctor staring at me for 6 hours killed me. I failed with a 685. This was a very tragic moment on my life; knowing that the pass rate is 70%, I felt the stupidest person on the world. After a couple of weeks of “in the fuck it” mode I decided to do something about it. That is when I started my Masters on Information Assurance. I work for the Federal Government; and for some reason you could have all the experience in the world, but if you do not have a Cert or Credentials to back it up you do not get the job.
So here I am again, a couple of years after at it again. The reason I did not take it again quickly was because of the 500 dollars lost. I wanted to make sure I would not fail again. Now I want to review and help other people review for the exam.
This Blog for now is about CISSP but first I want to talk about other credentials in the market and their standing from my very personal point of view.

SSL is a secure protocol used for transmitting private information over the Internet. It works by using a public key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection. SSL provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication.
TLS – upgrade to SSL, resides on application layer and can secure other protocols/applications, such as SMTP, IMAP, POP3, and HTTP.
SET (Secure Electronic Transaction) protocol originated by VISA and MasterCard as an Internet credit card protocol using digital signatures; makes USE of an electronic wallet on a customer’s PC and sends encrypted credit card information to merchant’s Web server, which digitally signs it and sends it on to its processing bank. It is comprised of three different pieces of software, running on the customer’s PC (an electronic wallet), on the merchant’s Web server and on the payment server of the merchant’s bank. The credit card information is sent by the customer to the merchant’s Web server, but it does not open it and instead digitally signs it and sends it to its bank’s payment server for processing.

This Model should be learned and memorized, if asked you should not have to think about them. These links will guide you to their wikis for easy study access.

The The Open System Interconnection Reference Model is some thing that should be completely learned and memorized. Pretty much just read the chart a couple of times and try to learn it so that when you are asked you can have a quick response.
