This Routing Protocol Security course was created by Piotr Kaluzny and is 1 hour and 45 minutes long. It consists of multiple videos in which the instructor discusses all relevant theoretical concepts and technologies, (in-depth explanations, whiteboarding) and demonstrates how to implement them on the current CCIE Security v5 lab exam hardware.


Why You Should Watch

Security is no longer just an “important” component of an organization. A constantly increasing number of aggressive cyber criminals launch their attacks not only from the outside, but also inside organizations, making security an inherent component of any modern network/system design.

This course, like all other courses that are part of the “CCIE Security v5 Technologies” series, is meant to teach you Cisco security technologies and solutions using the latest industry best-practices to secure systems and environments against modern security risks, threats, vulnerabilities, and requirements.

 

Who Should Watch

This course is intended for students preparing for their CCNA/CCNP/CCIE security exams. It is also great for experienced Network (Security) Engineers, or Administrators, looking to refresh their knowledge of important network security concepts before moving forward with other certifications.

 

What You’ll Learn

This course will help you understand the different methods used to secure routing protocols in a network infrastructure. The course focuses on EIGRP, OSPF & BGP for IPv4 and IPv6 and includes a discussion on the newest routing security features recently added to the IOS code.

Log into your Members Account, or check out our online store the view or purchase Rohit Pardasani's latest CCIE Security v5.0 Technologies video; CCIE Security V5 Technologies: ASA Firewall.

About The Course

This course is a deep dive in ASA and features of ASA firewall, and is a primary study resource for the CCIE Security v5 Lab Exam. Students looking for a thorough and well-structured learning tool will benefit from these videos, which help create a solid foundation of the concepts covered in the CCIE Security v5 Lab Exam.

In this course, we will walk you through the basics of ASA and help you dive into more practical and advanced topics. We will start by helping you understand the security levels in ASA and understand the Adaptive Security Algorithm. Then we will break down the ACL’s and objects and object-groups. We will further look at differences between ASA in router mode vs ASA in transparent mode. We will also focus on deep inspection of packets and later move on to creating virtual firewalls and running ASA in active/standby or active/active mode. Lastly, but not the least, we would focus on clustering.

Prerequisites

Basic understanding of firewalls and basic routing knowledge is a must.

Why You Should Watch

This course is a great study tool for anyone pursuing their CCNA, CCNP, or CCIE Security Certification. Regardless of certification achievement, some of the concepts covered in this course are useful to everyone that deals with firewall. Security is not an aspect to take for granted and both, regular users and IT professionals, should have a bare minimum knowledge of common security practices.

Who Should Watch

This course is intended for individuals who are just beginning their pursuit of the CCIE Security v5 certification or even CCNP Security Certification. This ASA Deep Dive could also be useful to those who are looking to become a master in ASA technology, as it is specifically designed to focus on the topics and technologies covered in ASA in the CCIE Security v5 Lab Exam.

CCNA Routing & Switching

I would arguably say that Keith is the best CCNA instructor in the nation. The interaction in this class is key. Listening to a lesson doesn't ensure comprehension, so Keith offered periodic quizzes; not only did this make the course increasingly interactive but also verified your understanding of the technologies discussed.

I very much look forward to going to the CCNP bootcamps. Thank you again Keith and staff for making my learning experience a great one!
Thomas Osborne - CCNA



CCNP ROUTE

The instructor Keith is very knowledgeable, patient, and polite. He covered everything possible with the amount of time we had. I also like the format of having to take routing and switching separately.  
Sirak Zewdie - CCNA



CCNP SWITCH

Keith is a very detailed instructor and kept the class engaged throughout the week.  He goes through material in the workbooks, but he also makes sure you have a real world understanding by either showing us through examples on the hardware or drawing it out.  He makes sure there is an understanding before moving forward.    
Theresa



CCNP Routing & Switching

Keith is a very good mentor. This was my first time attending an in class session and it was a great, informative experience for me. Keith is one gem of an instructor. He was kind, patient and very informative all through the course. The way he explains concepts with his hand gestures and whiteboard diagrams helped me understand them with ease. The lab sessions were the best. I personally loved the way the course was structured and would definitely recommend it for students who are planning to take it. Overall it was more than a lifetime experience for the money I paid.
Satish Devan

Keith was an amazing instructor. Luckily my class had so few people that he knew us by first name. Keith was knowledgeable in every aspect of the CCNP R&S track. You could even throw "scenarios" at him and he would work out the problem in his head. Then he would show you how the logic of the protocols would behave. Keith was able to go very in depth on the routing protocols and that really helped me feel more comfortable with large networks!  
Victor Halili ~ CCNA 2x & CCNP



CCIE Routing & Switching Written

I would like to thank INE and Rohit Pardasani in particular for the great experience I had. This course has provided me with a good idea on how the CCIE exam should be approached in terms of study and preparation. I will highly recommend this training to anybody that is on the same journey as I am. Also, many thanks to the Coordinator in providing all the information needed and answering my questions, this made everything as smooth as I hoped.
Berry Batist

I enjoyed Rohit personally. I would look for him if seeking another workshop. The content/material informed and challenged me. I feel better prepared. 
John Wattenbarger ~ CCNP R&S and Passed CCIE Written October 2017



CCIE Routing & Switching Lab

Dave Smith exceeded my expectations concerning his depth of knowledge of the material covered. I especially appreciated his incorporation of first-hand experience and historical context of the technologies. Relevant anecdotes help to solidify "why" something does what it does, rather than just memorizing. His enthusiasm and passion for networking really do help keep you focused on and listening to everything he says. 
Scott Bridges ~ CCIE #55860, VCP-NV, RCSP-WAN

This will open your eyes to the way you have to be prepared. Knowing the technology is one thing, but knowing different ways to resolve issues with the technologies and why is another! I would strongly recommend that every CCIE candidate take this class!  
Vernado Deal ~ CCNP and CCNAx3 (Voice, R&S, Security)



CCIE Routing & Switching Graded Practice Labs

I thought this class was very beneficial in helping me prepare for my first CCIE lab attempt. It not only tested my knowledge on many aspects within the CCIE blueprint, but also included some of the question semantics and "gotchas" that should be expected on the lab. I do feel like I am better prepared for what I should expect on the actual lab, and I have identified some weak areas that I need to work on before I attempt my lab.
Scott Charles Kitchen - CCNP route & switch and CompTIA Security+



CCIE Collaboration Lab Exam

For my last CCIE, I finally decided to go to a real bootcamp. I've made a smart choice with INE's Collaboration bootcamp taught by 5xCCIE Rohit Pardasani. I highly recommend going to this class when you feel you are about 80-90% ready to take the lab. Rohit will set you on the right path to fill in the remaining gaps!  
Roman Rodichev ~ 8xCCIE #7927, Founder & Chief Solution Architect @ ieMentor



CCIE Security Lab

The class has taught me how to approach the CCIE Lab Exam in a whole different way by showing me better ways to understand technical concepts instead of just memorizing commands, which at the end will be key to continue my certification and career goals. This is by far the best technical training I have received and will certainly be back for more.
Borman Bravo



CCIE Data Center Lab

Brian McGahan is an amazing instructor. He not only explained difficult concepts with ease but also helped in strengthening my basics of networking. He is very friendly to students and addresses even the silliest doubt without any hesitation, which instills confidence to speak your doubts and know that there is someone there for true guidance. I have enjoyed every moment of the class. I would love to attend future bootcamps whose instructor would be Brian McGahan.
Zain Nachiz

The boot camp was outstanding, and Brian was very patient and informative. This one-week boot camp was the equivalent of months of studying on my own.
Matt - CCNP route/switch



CCIE Service Provider Lab

Rohit is an extremely knowledgeable professional. He gave me insight into routing protocols that I never had before.
Doug Gluntz ~ CCNP R&S, BCNP, ACWA

What to Expect: Students Point of View

See what former students are saying about this bootcamp:

Rohit was extremely knowledgeable, perhaps the most knowledgeable Cisco instructor I've had in an ILT. The class was outstanding and I would highly recommend - I'd say it ranks in the top 5 ILT classes I've ever taken. Come to the bootcamp prepared, the more you know the more you'll learn. – Thomas Maier
T raining with Rohit was a really fun experience, he really knows his stuff. He used visual aids to illustrate technical topics and was always ready to assist with questions we had. I could not ask for a better proctor.- Howard Phillip
