Which one of the following protocols is an open, industry standard protocol for the exchange of network flow records?

A. IPFlow

B. Netflow v5

C.   Netflow v9


Correct Answer: D

The commonly used NetFlow standard is a proprietary Cisco standard, making both NetFlow v5 and NetFlow v9 incorrect answers. IPFlow is a NetFlow collector and not a standard for exchanging flow records. The Internet Protocol Flow Information Export (IPFIX) standard is an open alternative made available by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), making it our correct answer.
