Hello everyone,

We know that many of our CCIE Security customers are waiting for the updates of IEWB-SC VOL1 (technology labs) and VOL2 (full-scale labs). Like we mentioned before, the first update (about 50 ASA Firewall focused labs) is coming on the last week of March. Just to warm up your appetite, here is a small excerpt of the updated workbook (the final edition of VOL1 might look slightly different, but the teaser would give you a general idea of the workbook style):

IEWB-SC VOL1: ASA Firewall Teaser

In addition to covering the new blueprint topics, updated VOL1 will include all relevant labs from the previous release rewritten to match our new standards. Of course, per our Investment Protection program, all owners of the current VOL1 version will get the updates absolutely free of charge. For more information on IEWB-SC products and updates, please refer to the following links:

Migrating to CCIE Security v3.0 Blueprint

Oh, just in case if you’re wondering about IEWB-SC VOL2 updates, we plan to start releasing them on 2nd week of April!

    Nice breakdowns. Don’t forget please to add updated urls for further readings.

    Just a question, “Petr Lapukhov” is your name or an alias for a group of engineer at IE ?

    If I scheduled a security Lab by the end of June, can I finished all of the ten full scale labs before I take the exam?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Yes; VOL2 labs upgarde is not going to be a forklift; it is mostly about changing some of the tasks to match updated technologies (e.g. VTI) and adding the new topics such as SSL VPN in IOS, GET VPN, AD, Threat Detection, ZFW.
