BECSN Building Enhanced Cisco Security Networks


Duration: 5 Day Hands-On Lab & Lecture Course  


Studies have shown that over recent years there have been increases in the number of network attacks and the number of simplified tools available to carry out such attacks. Although the number of attacks has increased, the skill required to launch network attacks has decreased. For this reason, the need to secure corporate networks has grown exponentially. Building Enhanced Cisco Security Networks Version 2.0 focuses on securing access to the enterprise network and on securing the data that flows through it. Students who attend the course will configure Layer 2 network security; Layer 3 network security; IP Security (IPsec) VPNs for Cisco® IOS® Software routers; Cisco Secure PIX®; Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs); Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Firewall Services Modules (FWSMs); Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC); IPsec VPNs using Cisco firewalls and Cisco VPN concentrators; Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPNs on Cisco ASAs using the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM); Cisco intrusion prevention system (IPS) network devices; and Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (MARS).

Please note: Students need to provide their own Windows-based laptops and 15-ft-or longer ethernet cables.


Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe common network security threats to a given enterprise network at Layer 2, Layer 3, and Layer 7
  • Identify components of and configure Cisco Catalyst Integrated Security Features (CISF) throughout the Layer 2 infrastructure
  • Describe and deploy Layer 3 network security methods
  • Deploy NAC using the Cisco Clean Access platform
  • Configure IPsec to secure communications on a network infrastructure that also utilizes Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Deploy Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) using routing protocol methods and Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHR)P to provide a dynamic encryption framework
  • Deploy SSL VPNs using the Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance
  • Use the Cisco firewall platforms to secure enterprise network segments and provide VPN network termination
  • Deploy Cisco IPS network platforms in the given network environment and make sure the device is deployed using Cisco best practices
  • Deploy Cisco Security MARS for the given enterprise network and tie in Cisco routers, switches, firewalls, and IPS network platforms for monitoring and correlation
