Cisco - FIREWALL: Securing Networks with ASA Fundamentals

Duration: 5 Days
Course Price: $3,495

Deploying Cisco ASA Firewall v2.0 featuring ASA Software v8.3 aims at providing network security engineers with the knowledge and skills needed to configure Cisco ASA Firewalls and Firewall Features as well as manage an upgrade to ASA version 8.3.

Our students will learn the skills they need to implement and maintain Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance-based perimeter solutions. Successful graduates will be able to reduce risk to the IT infrastructure and applications using Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance features, and provide detailed operations support for the Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance.

Learn the skills needed to configure, maintain, and operate the firewall features of the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs).  This course prepares our students for the Cisco exam 642-618 FIREWALL which tests a candidate's knowledge and skills needed to implement and maintain Cisco ASA-based perimeter solutions. Candidates are expected to be ale to reduce risk to the IT infrastructure and applications using Cisco ASA features, and provide detailed operations support for the Cisco ASA.

Objectives

  • Technology and features of the Cisco ASA
  • Cisco ASA product family
  • How ASAs and Cisco PIX Security Appliances protect network devices from attacks
  • Bootstrap the security appliance
  • Prepare the security appliance for configuration via the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM)
  • Launch and navigate ASDM
  • Perform essential security appliance configuration using ASDM and the CLI
  • Configure dynamic and static address translations
  • Configure access policy based on Access Control Lists (ACLs)
  • Use object groups to simplify ACL complexity and maintenance
  • Use the Modular Policy Framework to provide unique policies to specific data flows
  • Handle advanced protocols with application inspection
  • Deep packet inspection of application layer traffic
  • Troubleshoot with Syslog, Packet Tracer, and packet capture
  • Configure access-control based on authenticated users
  • Configure threat detection to meet security policy requirements
  • Configure the security appliance to run in transparent firewall mode
  • Enable, configure, and manage multiple contexts to meet security policy requirements
  • Select and configure the type of failover that best suits the network topology
  • Monitor and manage an installed security appliance
  • Initialize ASA Security Service Modules including the AIP-SSM and CSC-SSM

Who Should Attend

  • Anyone who implements and maintains Cisco ASA firewalls
  • Network security specialists and technicians
  • Candidates seeking a CCNP Security certification
