Implementing Cisco Network Security Training (IINS) v3.0 Course Description

This is a five-day instructor-led Implementing Cisco Network Security Training (IINS) v3.0 course that focuses on the design, implementation and monitoring of a comprehensive security policy, using Cisco IOS security features and technologies. All IOS examples and hands on experience is done using the IOS CLI. IPS is covered at the theoretical level from the perspective of FirePower technologies.

Site-to-Site VPN configuration is covered on both IOS and the Cisco ASA . Modern malware examples are provided, cryptographic techniques use stronger hashing and encryption algorithms, and current versions of IOS, Cisco ASA and Cisco AnyConnect are highlighted.

More labs have been incorporated to ensure the maximum amount of hands on experience possible. There are two types of labs: Discovery and Challenge. A discovery is a guided lab exercise. Explicit directions are provided to the student to guide them through the activity. Along with the directions are scenarios and explanations specifying why the student is implementing the subject technology and the results after configuration are demonstrated.

Challenges, on the other hand, are evaluation labs. The set of tasks is provided to the student, but directions are not provided. There are job aids which the student may utilize, providing information such as IP addresses and command syntax, but no specific description of procedures. An answer key is available for students who wish to verify their techniques. The instructors will of course be on hand to revisit any areas that may need further clarification.
