Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Routers and Routing Protocol Hardening
Anyone wishing to obtain real-world routing knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCIP certification. This learning path’s discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates. Students completing the ROUTE 2.0 learning path should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.
This course consists of two parts. The first part explains how to secure Cisco routers using recommended practices. The second part explains the benefits of routing protocol authentication and shows how to configure routing authentication for different routing protocols. It is important to be aware that router security is critical to network security. This course lists recommended steps for securing a Cisco router. This course then focuses on configuring authentication for the routing protocols: EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP. You can prevent your router from receiving false route updates by configuring routing protocol authentication. Authentication options are examined before going into configuration of authentication options for each routing protocol.
