Cisco SISAS 1.0: Identity Services Overview and 802.1X
This course is for anyone wishing to obtain the Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (SISAS) v1.0 300-208 certification; one of four designed for the CCNP Security track from Cisco. Knowledge of Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification is required and knowledge of Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Security certification and Knowledge of Microsoft Windows Operating System are helpful.
The most secure solution at the access edge is to leverage the intelligence of the network. Cisco offers a host of services designed to enable secure user and host access to enterprise networks. It provides standards-based network access control at the access layer by using the 802.1X protocol to secure the physical ports where end users connect. 802.1X is an IEEE standard for media-level access control, offering the capability to permit or deny network connectivity, control VLAN access and apply traffic policy, based on user or machine identity. In this course, you will learn about the secure access solution and its key components, such as authentication, authorization, accounting, the identity stores, as well as the main authentication proxy protocols: RADIUS and TACACS+. Additionally, you will explore the 802.1X framework. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (SISAS) v1.0 (300-208 SISAS) exam.
