The Securing Cisco Routers and Switches (SECURE) course aims to provide network security engineers with the knowledge and skills needed to secure Cisco Router and Switch based IOS Software networks using security services based on Cisco IOS Software.
Delegates will be able to secure the network environment using existing Cisco IOS Software features, and install and configure components of the Cisco IOS Software. Components include the Zone-Based Policy Firewall, Cisco IOS Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), user-based firewall, and secure tunnels using IP Security (IPsec) virtual private network (VPN) technology including public key infrastructure (PKI). Other components include virtual tunnel interface/dynamic virtual tunnel interface (VTI/DVTI), Group Encrypted Transport VPN (GET VPN), Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Network (DMVPN), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN, and advanced switch security features. The course focuses on the implementation and troubleshooting aspects of the lifecycle services approach, adding some elements of the design phase as well.
