CompTIA Security+ Question K-23

A security administrator wants to implement a solution which will allow some applications to run under the user’s home directory and only have access to files stored within the same user’s folder, while other applications have access to shared folders. Which of the following BEST addresses these requirements if the environment is concurrently shared by multiple users?

A. OS Virtualization
B. Trusted OS
C. Process sandboxing
D. File permission

Answer: C

Sandboxing involves running applications in restricted memory areas. It limits the possibility of an application crash, allowing a user to access another application or the data associated with it.
