FIREWALL 2.0 - Deploying Cisco ASA Firewall Solutions

Course Description/Agenda

Gain the skills needed to configure, maintain, and operate the firewall features of the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs).

We have enhanced this course and added depth to the standard labs, using a topology that simulates a typical production network. You'll use ASA 5520 appliances to work through configuring access control to and from your network.

A Global Knowledge Exclusive: Bonus Lab Credits

You'll receive five extra e-Lab credits (good for 30 days) to review a topic after class, refine your skills, or get in extra practice-whatever lab activities complete your training.

What You'll Learn

  • 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
  • Integrate the ASA with Cisco Secure ACS for TACACS+ command authorization
  • Integrate the ASA with Cisco Secure ACS for RADIUS network access control
  • Configure auto and manual network address translation (NAT)
  • Configure access policy based on the Global Access Control List (ACL)
  • Configure access policy based on interface 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 TCPping, Syslog, Packet Tracer, and packet capture
  • Configure access control based on authenticated users
  • 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
