CompTIA Security+ 2008: Authentication Methods
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Developing authentication methods that ensure that a user is who they claim to be has been a challenge for administrators since shared networking was first introduced. There are many authentication models and strategies available today. This course introduces the learner to the concepts of AAA, hashing, multi-factor authentication, Kerberos, and domain security. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Security+ (2008 Edition) certification exam.
Organizations involved in IT services or training that need to have personnel qualified for onwards delivery of IT support or training; businesses that will need up-to-date Security+ training for their own internal networking support purposes; individuals who are personally interested in establishing credentials for the benefit of their own career prospects.
Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Security+ candidates have at least two years on-the-job networking experience with an emphasis on security. The CompTIA Network+ certification is also recommended.
