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.

 

About The Instructor

Piotr Kaluzny has been in the IT field since 2002 when he was exposed to networking and programming during his studies. His career in production networks began in 2007, right after graduating with MSc in Computer Science. Piotr quickly progressed his career by working for multiple enterprise and non-enterprise companies in different routing & switching and security roles, with his responsibilities ranging from operations and engineering, to consulting and management.

Since the beginning, Piotr has been heavily focused on the Security track to finally prove his skills in 2009 by passing the CCIE security certification exam (#25565) on the first attempt (he also holds R&S and Security CCNP and CCNA certifications).

Piotr already has an extensive background as a Senior Technical Instructor. For the past several years he has been solely responsible for designing, developing and conducting CCNA, CCNP and CCIE training courses for one of the largest and most respected Cisco training companies in the world.

Note that this announcement from Cisco is sort of a "pre-announcement" in that the official CCIE Security 4.0 change hasn't been announced but will be really soon. This means if you want to take the v3 Security lab you should book your date ASAP.

From Cisco.com:

The Real Life of an Expert: Introducing the New CCIE Security

CCIE Security 4.0 is unusual among security certificates for its up-to-date, real-world content. It emphasizes security competency and efficient problem solving in networks that use cloud services, carry voice and multimedia traffic, and are accessed by a variety of wireless devices.

The content, currently in development, may include real-world applications that involve:

  • Securing both wireless and wired networks, including managing security policy by device and service
  • Extending application awareness to security devices, moving security up to Layer 7 from the stateless packets of Layers 3 and 4, and applying policy on a per-identity basis
  • Applying security policy in a network that has voice and video traffic
  • Securing networks that use managed services, dual ISPs, IPv6, or IP multicast
  • Cisco will soon announce the blueprints for the CCIE Security 4.0 written and lab exams; the first exam will take place approximately six months later.

    Although there are no prerequisites for registration, Cisco offers a preparation path through its CCNA and/or CCNP Security levels, and recommends that candidates have at least three years of hands-on network security experience.

    Also I hope to see a few of you at the CCIE party here in London tonight. I'll be easy to spot as I'll probably be one of the only sober CCIE's there ;-) Lastly if you're really bored you could follow me on Twitter while I'm here at Cisco Live Europe: http://twitter.com/ccie2210
