Q: The phenomenon known as ________ occurs when NAT obscures the source IP address of an originating device.

  • port forwarding
  • routing
  • switching
  • IP masquerading¬†

Explanation:¬†“Source NAT” or “SNAT” (Source Network Address Translation) is the name given to the process by which NAT conceals the source IP address of a device that is the originator of the network. Before the data is sent to the external network, the private IP address of the device that initiated the transmission is changed to a public IP address via the use of SNAT. This contributes to the protection of the confidentiality and safety of the internal configurations of the network.
