VPN 2.0 - Deploying Cisco ASA VPN Solutions

Course Description/Agenda

Learn to configure, maintain, and operate VPN solutions based on the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) including:

  • Site-to-site IPSec VPN
  • Remote access IPSec VPN
  • Remote access SSL VPN with AnyConnect 3.0
  • Load balancing VPN clusters
  • AAA for VPNs using Cisco ACS 5.2

We have enhanced the standard Cisco labs to run on our expanded topology to better simulate a typical production network. Using an ASA 5520, our expert instructors will guide you through exercises such as:

  • Managing digital certificates for IPSec and SSL VPNs
  • Implementing both site-to-site and remote access VPN
  • Implementing VPN access policies for corporate employees, contractors, and partners

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

  • Implement site-to-site IPSec VPN
  • Implement remote access IPSec and SSL VPNs
  • Work with both the legacy Cisco IPSec VPN client and the AnyConnect 3.0 VPN client
  • Deploy clientless SSL VPN access, including portal customization, smart tunnel access, and web-type ACLs
  • Implement single sign-on for clientless VPN access to internal resources
  • Deploy full tunnel SSL VPN using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client
  • Determine and enhance the security posture of remote SSL VPN systems using Cisco Secure Desktop
  • Use digital certificates and PKI infrastructure for peer identity management in all classes of VPN
  • Configure the ASA as a Certificate Authority for SSL VPN access
  • Configure the ASA as a SCEP proxy for remote access VPN
  • Configure access control policies to implement your security policy across all classes of VPN
  • Use Dynamic Access Policies (DAP) to adapt a remote user's VPN policy to the user's current situation
  • Implement High Availability and scalability features for Cisco ASA VPN solutions
