This path will help prepare you for the Cisco CCNA Security (210-260) IINS exam.
This course covers the fundamentals of network security. Is designed to take you through not only the fundamentals of security but also some of the most common threats that are seen in our networks today. In this course, you'll also learn fundamentals of cryptography and also look at a brief history of crypto. You'll also learn about various network security devices and how they're used in our network topologies today.
Our networks are faced with a number of threats that we must protect against. Among them are threats against the network devices themselves. This course, Securing Network Devices for CCNA Security (210-260) IINS, is one in a series of courses that meet all the objectives of the CCNA Security (210-260) IINS exam. In it, you'll learn important techniques used to mitigate these threats, including Control Plane Protection (CPPr) and Routing Protocol Authentication. In addition, you'll learn how 802.1X protects access to the network and how you can implement BYOD to onboard employees that would like to use their personal devices in the workplace. By the end of this course, you'll know how to better protect your networks and you'll be more prepared for the 210-260 IINS exam.
This course is designed to help you learn the CCNA Security Firewall topics for both Cisco IOS and Cisco ASA. Each device has a different approach to configuring firewall policy and this course will cover both. First, you'll learn about the ASA and ASAv platforms and you'll configure the ASAv for firewall services using the Cisco VIRL learning platform. Next, you'll discover how to use a Cisco IOS router as a Zone-based firewall platform which is ideal for branch offices. Each module addresses topics found on the CCNA Security exam.
This course is designed to help you learn the CCNA Security VPN topics. In this course, you'll be introduced to VPN concepts including IPSec and SSL encryptions. You'll learn about the building blocks of a VPN policy and configure VPN on the Cisco ASA and Cisco IOS routers. You will configure both site-to-site as well as remote-access VPN in this course and learn how to test and verify.
In networks today, you deal with a number of advanced threats, and that's why next-generation technologies are so popular. However, while many people spend a great deal of time and money using them to secure against these threats, it's easy to overlook the infrastructure and local area network. In this course, Layer 2 Security for CCNA Security (210-260) IINS, you'll learn all you need to know about the subset of the 210-260 CCNA Security exam. First, you'll learn about the threats seen at Layer 2. Next, you'll learn common mitigation techniques that are known for Layer 2. Finally, you'll see demonstrations of these techniques and how they are configured and tested. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to secure your network infrastructure.
This course is designed to introduce you to some of the advanced topics of the CCNA Security certification exam. These topics are a precursor to the CCNP Security are are touched on in theory in this course. You'll learn about Cisco FireSIGHT, Cisco Email Security, and Cisco Web Security. Each module addresses topics found on the CCNA Security exam.
