Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security (IINS) Foundation Learning Guide Second Edition
Foundation learning for the CCNA Security IINS 640-554 exam
Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security (IINS) Foundation Learning Guide, Second Edition, is a Cisco-authorized, self-paced learning tool for CCNA® Security 640-554 foundation learning. This book provides you with the knowledge needed to secure Cisco® networks. By reading this book, you will gain a thorough understanding of how to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats.
This book focuses on using Cisco IOS routers to protect the network by capitalizing on their advanced features as a perimeter router, firewall, intrusion prevention system, and site-to-site VPN device. The book also covers the use of Cisco Catalyst switches for basic network security, the Cisco Secure Access Control System (ACS), and the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA). You learn how to perform basic tasks to secure a small branch office network using Cisco IOS security features available through web-based GUIs (Cisco Configuration Professional) and the CLI
on Cisco routers, switches, and ASAs.
Whether you are preparing for CCNA Security certification or simply want to gain a better understanding of Cisco IOS security fundamentals, you will benefit from the information provided in this book.
