Course Description

This 14-video course explores the key concepts for designing and implementing a secure network. Continue preparations for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam by exploring physical network design, including the location of the network, wired and wireless networks, and infrastructure devices. You will examine local network infrastructure device management, and logical network design, such as VLANs (virtual local area networks), virtual network switches, and software-defined networking. Next, learners observe how to enable HTTPS for a network printer. You will explore types of firewalls, the placement of firewall solutions, and ACLs (access control lists), and how to configure a firewall rule. Then learn how to configure cloud-based firewalls by using the AWS (Amazon Web Services) console, and to configure a firewall rule on a Linux host. You will learn to configure IDS (intrusion detection systems) and IPS (intrusion prevention systems), and placement of intrusion and prevention systems. Finally, this course discusses Bluetooth, NFC (near field communication), and how to configure Wi-Fi security settings on wireless router.
