Forgive me if this is a ridiculous question but I am looking for some clarification on these 2 terms and how each one differs in term of security.
My understanding is that a federated network is where separate networks share resources and allows them to be used and accessed as if they were a single entity.
And a segmented network is simply one that has been 'split' into smaller networks.
So my question is, practically, how are they different? (One is a big network being broken into smaller ones, the other is smaller networks forming a larger one) Especially when it comes to security: If a sub network is compromised on a federated network, is the entire network compromised and the same for segmentation?
