Description

In this five-day bundle course, you will learn the basic concepts and skills necessary to configure Check Point Security Gateway and Management Software Blades, as well as how to effectively build, modify, deploy, and troubleshoot Check Point Security systems on the GAiA OS. You will configure a Security Policy and learn about managing and monitoring a secure network. In addition, you will learn how to upgrade and configure a Security Gateway and implement a virtual private network (VPN). We will examine firewall processes and as well as user and kernel processing and stateful inspections. Labs include configuring security gateways, implementing VPNs, and performing advanced troubleshooting tasks on the firewall.

Objective

  • Describe Check Point’s unified approach to network management, and the key elements of it
  • Design a distributed environment
  • Install the Security Gateway in a distributed environment
  • Perform a backup and restore the current Gateway installation from the command line
  • Identify critical files needed to purge or backup, import and export users and groups and add or delete administrators from the command line
  • Deploy Gateways using the GAiA web interface Create and configure network, host and gateway objects
  • Verify SIC establishment between the Security Management Server and the Gateway using SmartDashboard
  • Create a basic Rule Base in SmartDashboard that includes permissions for administrative users, external services, and LAN outbound use
  • Configure NAT rules on Web and Gateway servers
  • Evaluate existing policies and optimize the rules based on current corporate requirements
  • Maintain the Security Management Server with scheduled backups and policy versions to ensure seamless upgrades with minimal downtime
  • Use Queries in SmartView Tracker to monitor IPS and common network traffic and trouble-shoot events using packet data
  • Use packet data to generate reports, troubleshoot system and security issues, and ensure network functionality
  • Using SmartView Monitor, configure alerts and traffic counters, view a Gateway’s status, monitor suspicious activity rules, analyze tunnel activity and monitor remote user access
  • Monitor remote Gateways using SmartUpdate to evaluate the need for upgrades, new installations, and license modifications
  • Use SmartUpdate to apply upgrade packages to single or multiple VPN-1 Gateways
  • Upgrade and attach product licenses using SmartUpdate
  • Centrally manage users to ensure only authenticated users securely access the corporate network either locally or remotely
  • Manage users to access the corporate LAN by using external databases
  • Use Identity Awareness to provide granular level access to network resources
  • Acquire user information used by the Security Gateway to control access
  • Define Access Roles for use in an Identity Awareness rule
  • Implement Identity Awareness in the Firewall Rule Base
  • Configure a pre-shared secret site-to-site VPN with partner sites
  • Configure permanent tunnels for remote access to corporate resources
  • Configure VPN tunnel sharing, given the difference between host-based, subunit-based and gateway-based tunnels
  • Perform a backup of a Security Gateway and Management Server using your understanding of the differences between backups, snapshots and update-exports
  • Upgrade and troubleshoot a Management Server using a database migration
  • Upgrade and troubleshoot a clustered Security Gateway deployment
  • Use knowledge of Security Gateway infrastructures, chain modules, packet flow and kernel tables to perform debugs on firewall processes
  • Build, test, and troubleshoot a ClusterXL Load Sharing deployment on an enterprise network
  • Build, test, and troubleshoot a ClusterXL High Availability deployment on an enterprise network
  • Build, test, and troubleshoot a management HA deployment on an enterprise network
  • Configure, maintain, and troubleshoot SecureXL and CoreXL acceleration solutions on the corporate network traffic to ensure noted performance enhancement
  • Using an external user database such as LDAP, configure User Directory to incorporate user information for authentication services on the network
  • Manage internal and external user access to resources for Remote Access or across a VPN
  • Troubleshoot user access issues found when implementing Identity Awareness
  • Troubleshoot a site-to-site or certificate-based VPN on a corporate gateway using IKE View, VPN log files and command-line debug tools
  • Optimize VPN performance and availability by using Link Selection and Multiple Entry Point solutions
  • Manage and test corporate VPN tunnels to allow for greater monitoring and scalability with multiple tunnels defined in a community including other VPN providers
  • Create events or use existing event definitions to generate reports on specific network traffic using SmartReporter and SmartEvent to provide industry compliance information to management
  • Troubleshoot report generation given command-line tools and debug-file information
