Cisco IINS 3.0: Site-to-Site VPN
This course is directed towards networking professionals who need to understand common security concepts and deploy basic security techniques using a variety of popular security solutions including IOS routers, IOS switches, Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances and Windows and Linux hosts. This course is also designed for security practitioners who want to pass the IINS 3.0 exam.
Like routers, both Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches have their own security requirements. Switch access is a common entry point for crackers who are intent on gaining illegal access to a corporate network. An attacker can then introduce rogue access points and protocol analyzers and launch all types of attacks from within the network. Attackers can also spoof the MAC and IP addresses of critical servers and do significant damage. In this course, you will examine various Layer 2 attacks and strategies to mitigate them.
