Cisco SECURE 1.0: Deploying Advanced Management Plane Security Controls

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


The management plane performs all the management functions for a device and coordinates functions between the control and the data planes. These functions make the management plane a prime target for attacks. This course introduces you to some strategies for protecting the management plane by limiting access to it, limiting access to its individual features, and using role-based access control (RBAC). You can also configure security features of Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3), use digitally signed software images, and configure the detection of resource exhaustion denial-of-service attacks.

Target Audience

Network professionals responsible for securing and managing their network infrastructures, who have CCNA certification, CCNA Security certification (IINS), and a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows operating systems
