Hi, Avi.
In HFSJ 2nd Edition, it is stated that

Confidentiality means that nobody else can see the data along the way.


One of the option's of Q.no 3 is

Confidentiality can be defined as information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorized persons or processes


I think it indirectly says, information is made available or disclosed to authorized persons or processes. During data transmission i.e from client to server or server to client, I am not getting, who is authorized persons or processes they can see data/information? Can you please explain? Thankyou.

i also think , it is correct.

because in Mikalai Zaikin's notes , it says


Confidentiality means used to ensure that information is made available only to users who are authorized to access it.
