The Cisco 642-648 VPN v2.0 exam is focused on VPN technologies supported by Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Firewall. The exam takes a relatively complete tour into enterprise-level IKEv1 IPsec Remote Access and Site-to-Site VPNs as well as clientless SSL VPNs and AnyConnect SSL VPNs. Topics with less focus but still present on the exam are IKEv2 Site-to-Site VPNs, IKEv2 Remote Access VPNs and IPv6 VPN features. It covers both configuration related topics as well as general VPN technology aspects.

Cisco includes the VPN v2.0 exam as a requirement in achieving the new CCNP Security professional level certification, rest of the three exams being 642-637 SECURE v1.0, 642-618 FIREWALL v2.0 and 642-627 IPS v7.0. As the name suggests, these are scoped for Securing Networks with Cisco Routers and Switches, Deploying Cisco ASA Firewall and Implementing Cisco IPS.
