Explore advanced network security concepts as you prepare for the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP): Security certification.
You'll first review basic SCOR concepts and why they are important. Next, you'll move on to explore common language when it comes to securing your lT architecture and how to correctly use this language when discussing your security environment. You'll examine common attack methods in order to properly secure your on-prem IT environment. With the popularity of the cloud, computer criminals have begun targeting these areas with more and more frequency. To wrap up this course, you'll learn about some of the most common attacks against the cloud. This course can be used in preparation for the 350-701: Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR) certification exam.
There are many common vulnerabilities in software and systems and you must understand them to effectively secure your network systems. In this course, you'll learn about some of these vulnerabilities, as well as common attack mitigation techniques for network application style attacks. Before reviewing cybersecurity technologies in greater detail, you'll first look at the basics of cryptography and the critical role it plays in computer and network security. Finally, you'll explore some current cryptographic solutions and what they are used for. This course can be used in preparation for the 350-701: Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR)
A major aspect of Internet-based security these days hinges upon the Public Key Infrastructure. In this course, you'll learn the basics of this critical set of technologies. PKI is the magic behind the use of seamless SSL/TLS authentication and encryption on the public Internet and this clever implementation of asymmetric encryption algorithms can also be used in your private enterprise. You'll continue your exploration of PKI by learning how to fulfill a certificate request. Finally, you'll learn about the Internet Key Exchange, including the differences between IKE v1 and v2. This course can be used in preparation for the 350-701: Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR) certification exam.
