Lesson 1

Lesson 1: Hardening Network Devices with Cisco Configuration Professional (CCP), Downloadable Version

Routers, without special configuration are susceptible to many types of attacks and misuse. By implementing a better than default security posture on the first day the router is deployed is a much needed first step in building a secure infrastructure for our data networks today. This lesson will assist in teaching you how to improve your initial security posture.

Duration: 00:26:56  File Size: 81 MB

Lesson 2

Lesson 2: Implementing Secure Management and Monitoring, Downloadable Version

Accurate and centralized reporting regarding the activities of your network devices is critical, especially when making sense of an attack that effected multiple network devices. Limiting the damage that can be done by a single administrator is good policy. This lesson addresses both of these issues with best practices for monitoring and role based access control

Duration: 00:34:49  File Size: 94 MB

Lesson 3

Lesson 3: Using a Central Access Control Server (ACS) Using TACACS+, Downloadable Version

Managing user accounts is tedious enough, without having to manually administer them on dozens or even hundreds of network devices. This lesson teaches you how to centralize your user database of names, passwords and authorizations to a single server or set of servers using AAA

Duration: 00:32:13  File Size: 86 MB

Lesson 4

Lesson 4: Implementing Layer 2 Protection for Switches, Downloadable Version

There are many types of attacks that can cause our switches to be compromised, and act differently than expected. In this lesson you will learn how to control Spanning Tree using the BPDU Guard command, and mitigate a CAM table overflow by using the feature of Port Security.

Duration: 00:19:51  File Size: 35 MB

Lesson 5

Lesson 5: Packet Filtering ACLs to Reduce Riak, Downloadable Version

Using basic packet filtering can stop unwanted or unauthorized traffic, as well as protect against many types of network based attacks. In this lesson you will learn how to create and implement both IPv4 and IPv6 packet filters.

Duration: 00:26:28  File Size: 70 MB

Lesson 6

Lesson 6: Cisco IOS Zone Based Firewall (ZBF), Downloadable Version

Stateful filtering firewalls are one of the most common, and useful firewalls today. In this lesson you will learn how to configure the stateful filtering feature called the Zone Based Firewall on a Cisco IOS router.

Duration: 00:27:19  File Size: 85 MB

Lesson 7

Lesson 7: Cisco ASA Firewall, Downloadable Version

The dedicated ASA firewall appliance is a purpose built network device that allows stateful filtering, NAT, VPN services and much more. In this lesson you will learn how to initialize an ASA, using its management tool ASDM, and configure and verify policy on the firewall.

Duration: 00:40:54  File Size: 124 MB

Lesson 8

Lesson 8: Adding the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) to the Cisco Router, Downloadable Version

For small offices that don’t have the budget for a dedicated IPS appliance, the IOS IPS feature can be used on an existing router to add the functionality to the router. In this lesson, you will learn how to configure and manage the IOS based IPS.

Duration: 00:18:48  File Size: 67 MB

Lesson 9

Lesson 9: IPsec Site to Site VPN Tunnels on Cisco IOS Routers, Downloadable Version

Connecting over an untrusted network such as the Internet has inherent security risks, such as eavesdropping. IPsec can be used to protect the data as it crosses public networks. In this lesson you will learn how to configure and verify IPsec VPN tunnels.

Duration: 00:47:20  File Size: 133 MB

Lesson 10

Lesson 10: Implementing SSL VPNs on the Cisco ASA Firewall, Downloadable Version

SSL is a feature that is supported, by default, by most Internet browser software today. Levering the SSL, a VPN can be created to allow remote users to access their data over protected VPNs, offering similar functionality to IPsec. In this lesson you will learn how to configure SSL VPN support on the ASA firewall.

5+ Hours of Video Instruction

CCNA Security 640-554 LiveLessons helps you develop the hands-on knowledge and skills you need to secure Cisco networks and prepare for the CCNA Secuirty IINS 640-554 exam.

In this video training, CCIE-certified expert trainer Keith Barker provides you 5 hours of hands-on, step-by-step video training on common Cisco network security configuration and troubleshooting tasks. These hands-on video lessons cover hardening network devices with Cisco Configuration Professional (CCP), implementing secure management and monitoring, using ACS and TACACS+, implementing layer 2 protection for switches, packet filtering ACLs, configuring Cisco IOS zone-based firewalls and Cisco ASA firewalls, adding IPS to Cisco routers, connecting IPsec site to site VPN tunnels on Cisco routers, and implementing SSL VPNs on the Cisco ASA. Through this collection of 10 video training lessons, divided into 29 sublessons, you will gain insight into the hands-on configuration and troubleshooting skills needed to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. 

Skill Level

Beginner

What You Will Learn

  • Harden network devices with CCP
  • Implement secure management and monitoring
  • Use a central ACS with TACACS+
  • Implement Layer 2 protection for switches
