    One-way CHAP
    In one-way CHAP authentication, also called unidirectional, the target authenticates the initiator, but the initiator does not authenticate the target.
    Mutual CHAP
    In mutual CHAP authentication, also called bidirectional, an additional level of security enables the initiator to authenticate the target. VMware supports this method for software and dependent hardware iSCSI adapters only.

    For software and dependent hardware iSCSI adapters, you can set unidirectional CHAP and bidirectional CHAP for each adapter or at the target level. Independent hardware iSCSI supports CHAP only at the adapter level.

    The answer is… time is over. The average test is about one question per minute. So you cannot think when you are doing the vmware freak quiz certification test.

    You must memorize all this crazy stuff and pray for they dont change the test version.
