This Hands-On course is designed to expand an attendees general knowledge of networking into leading edge technologies. Attendees will learn about the security risks all networks present and some of the key security solutions to meet these challenges needed for new and old technologies in service today. Specifically, the student will learn about secure networking via VLANs and VPNs delivered by tunneling or the hot new concept of MPLS VPNs.
Security inevitably involves trade-offs in practice. Real systems need to provide reliable operation while still offering sufficient effective system power.
Designing secure systems involves building systems that are difficult for an attacker to defeat. To understand this well, the course first demonstrates the most popular hacking techniques for compromising systems and then teaches how these techniques can be defeated by good design and security features.
