Seven comprehensive CCIE security labs to hone configuration and troubleshooting skills
Prepare for the CCIE Security lab exam and hone your security
configuration and troubleshooting skills with seven complete
practice scenarios that cover:
Basic device configuration
Cisco PIX Firewall configuration
VPN configuration, including IPSec, GRE, L2TP, and PPTP
VPN-3000 Concentrator configuration
Intrusion Detection System (IDS) 42xx Appliance configuration
Cisco IOS Firewall configuration
Advanced security issues
IP services and protocol-independent features
The explosive growth of the Internet economy over the past several years and new IP-based enterprise applications has heightened requirements for continuous availability of mission-critical data. Today's network administrators and managers are under big pressure to satisfy ever-increasing demands from customers, suppliers, and employees for 100 percent network resource availability and access to applications and data. The end result is that the cost of a network security breach has never been higher. Accordingly, the demand for networking professionals with expert-level network security configuration and troubleshooting skills is also great. The Cisco Systems CCIE Security certification is a prestigious program that sets the professional benchmark for internetworking expertise, validating proficiency with advanced technical skills required to design, configure, and maintain a wide range of network security technologies.
CCIE Security Practice Labs provides a series of complete practice labs that mirror the difficult hands-on lab exam. Written by a CCIE Security engineer and Cisco Systems CCIE proctor, this book lays out seven end-to-end scenarios that are both complex and realistic, providing you with the practice needed to prepare for your lab examination and develop critical-thinking skills that are essential for resolving complex, real-world security problems. While many engineers are able to configure single technologies in standalone environments, most will struggle when dealing with integrated technologies in heterogeneous environments.
CCIE Security Practice Labs consists of seven full-blown
labs. The book does not waste time covering conceptual knowledge
found in other security manuals, but focuses exclusively on these
complex scenarios. The structure of each chapter is the same,
covering a broad range of security topics. Each chapter starts with
an overview, equipment list, and general guidelines and
instructions on setting up the lab topology, including cabling
instructions, and concludes with verification, hints, and
troubleshooting tips, which highlight show and debug commands. The
companion CD-ROM contains solutions for all of the labs, including
configurations and common show command output from all the devices
in the topology.
"Security is one of the fastest-growing areas in the industry. There is an ever-increasing demand for the experts with the knowledge and skills to do it."
-Gert De Laet, Product Manager, CCIE Security, Cisco Systems
CCIE Security Practice Labs is part of a recommended study program from Cisco Systems that includes simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners and self-study products from Cisco Press.
The CD-ROM contains the solutions to the seven complete lab scenarios in the book including configurations and show command output.
This volume is part of the Cisco Press Practical Studies Series, which offers readers a means to apply their theoretical knowledge through hands-on lab scenarios for key networking technologies. This unique approach enables readers to practice and hone their internetworking skills while preparing for Cisco certification exams.
