Posts from ‘CCNA Security’
With the recent advent of the new 2.0 version CCNA, CCNP and CCIE Wireless certifications, as well as the (probably more notable) CCIE Data Center being announced this week (something that we reported to you first 8 months ago), INE is proud to announce that we are developing training for both of these prestigious Cisco certification tracks. We should have CCNA, CCNP and CCIE Wireless products all covering the new 2.0 version by this summer, and we will be purchasing at least one complete Data Center rack and develop courseware surrounding that new CCIE as well. We will evaluate the market, and our costs to asses if it is feasible to procure more CCIE Data Center racks for rental at that time.
Also we should note that we have just finished up 62 hours of a brand new CCNP Voice v8 bootcamp that will be available for stream or download next week, and that our new CCNP Security bootcamp is being filmed beginning on Monday, April 30, and should be available for stream or download the following week. Also that we will be adding 2 new CCIE Voice labs to our Volume II workbook here in the next month (one in about a week and one in about 3 weeks), and lastly (but by no means even close to least) that we are on track to release the new CCIE SPv3 workbook by the end of next week.
We look forward to working with all of you in your certification endeavors!
Just ahead of our brand new CCNA Voice live online bootcamp beginning this Monday, I thought it might be nice to provide an easy-to-follow graphic for those starting out in Voice (or on any other Cisco networking track). This graphic was from last year, but remains quite easy to follow for each and every Cisco track.
Be sure you have a high resolution set if you wish to see the entire thing, otherwise scrolling may be necessary.
We have a new feature on our All Access Pass streaming video playlists that we believe will help tremendously help you in your studies – but we’ll leave you to be the judge of that. We have added the ability for you to save unlimited bookmarks (and take notes on those bookmarks) for each video playlist you have in your online, streaming All Access Pass. Please login to your members account, then navigate to one of the streaming video playlists in order to access the new bookmark feature (i.e. you won’t see it on the sample video playlists).
Here is a sample screenshot of the new feature in action. Click to see it larger.
By the way, one other important thing to note about this new feature is that if you take a bookmark, it is not specific to the streaming quality that you chose when saving the bookmark. So if you were watching in the “High” quality, and save a bookmark for a specific spot, you can always choose a different quality level (e.g. “HD”) and then click your bookmark, or vice-versa, to watch that bookmark at the different streaming quality. Also, you will be able to copy the links from those bookmarks, and send them to your peers studying with you, that also have an INE AAP membership, and they will be able to access that same spot to comment on something important that you found, and would like to share with them. You will find the appendix to the existing video URL very
similar to that of the way YouTube codes theirs, for easy use.
Enjoy, and be sure to tell us how you like the new feature and if or how it is helping you in your studies, in the comments section!
A while back, in May, we asked you all what you thought of adding closed captioning to all of our videos, and your response – both in comments and private emails – was overwhelmingly positive. This functionality would not only provide better assistance for those with difficulty hearing, but also give everyone the incredible ability to search anywhere within any video for a particular topic or keyword that had been spoken about in the audio track, and immediately jump to that timecode spot in the video. This would every single minute of every video we have the ablility to be searched and subsequently accessed within just a few moments vs. having to watch the entire video over and over each time you wished to return to a particular spot in it for some remedial learning.
Well, you needn’t wait much longer.

Today’s challenge is drawn from the exciting area of CCNA Security. Enjoy. As always, you can find the answer in the comments area a day or two after the date of this post.
IINS-1: The CIA Triad seeks to define the three primary purposes for network security. These are to secure an organization’s data confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Define integrity as it is used in the CIA Triad. For bonus credit, provide the term texts often attribute the A for in CIA as opposed to Availability.
One of our students asked me for a concise example of SNMPv3. James, here you go! This blog has examples and explanations of the features used in SNMPv3.
Older versions of SNMP didn’t provide all the features of SNMPv3. V3 supports a User-based Security Model (USM) for authentication, and a View-based Access Control Model (VACM) to control what that user account may access. Of course the user accounts don’t represent end users, they are just the configuration elements we configure on the SNMP devices, primarily for creating the connection to or from the SNMP device.
With version 3 we may use the following methods:
- noAuthNoPriv: requires username, but no MD5 validation of that user, and no encryption
- authNoPriv: requires username, provides MD5 validation, but no encryption
- authPriv: You guessed it. Requires username, uses MD5 validation, and encrypts too. Continue Reading
