Course Description:
The class generally takes 4 days in order to complete, but the individual will come away with skills needed to operate these firewall features with confidence. There are, however, a few prerequisites required before the class can be taken. The individuals taking this class must have completed ICND2 – Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices 2, as well as IINS – Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security. Those who should attend the class include anyone who has the responsibility of implementing and maintaining a Cisco ASA firewall, network security specialists and technicians, as well as candidates who are in pursuit of CCNP Security certification.

The class has recently been enhanced to provide a greater learning experience for the students. Each of the labs has been revamped in order to provide a greater depth of learning for the students and from this, students will learn to use the ASA 5520 appliances to work through configuring access control to and from the network. Also examined is the PIX firewall and the Firewall Services Module, which only further expands on the knowledge needed to setup and maintain a functional and efficient firewall using the Cisco ASA product family.

There are a number of different aspects covered throughout this class. Some of the important information that will be presented and taken away throughout the course are the technology and features of the Cisco ASA. The Cisco ASA product family is covered extensively throughout the course. Also covered is how ASAs and Cisco PIX Security Appliances help protect network devices from attack. Students within the class are instructed in the steps necessary in order to bootstrap the security appliance. Utilizing the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), students are instructed on how to prepare the security appliance for configuration, while steps in how to launch and navigate the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager are also covered as well. Combining the ASDM and CLI in order to perform essential security appliance configuration is another topic of the class. Address translations, both of the dynamic and static type, are also concentrated on. Access Control Lists (ACLs) are touched upon and students will feel comfortable with configuring the access policy based on these, while also using object groups to simplify the complex steps that accompany ACL maintenance.

At the end of the class students will be able to use the Modular Policy Framework to supply unique policies to specific data flows, while also using application inspection in order to deal with advanced protocols. Students will be instructed in the correct steps needed in order to carry out a deep packet inspection of application layer traffic. Also covered throughout the class is an in-depth look at how to troubleshoot Syslog, Packet Tracer, and packet capture. Students will be proficient in configuring access-control based on authenticated users while also being able to configure threat detection in order to meet security policy requirements. Considerable time will be spent in configuring the security appliance while in transparent mode and students should be feel very comfortable at the end of the class with this aspect of the Cisco Firewall.

See what our students are saying about our training:

The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

- Samuel Angura
World Bank

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.
