This title is primarily intended for networking professionals pursuing the CCSP certification and preparing for the SECUR 642-501 exam, one of five CCSP component exams. The materials, however, appeal to an even broader range of networking professionals seeking a better understanding of the policies, strategies, and techniques of network security. The exam and course, known as Securing Cisco IOS Networks (SECUR), cover a broad range of networking security topics, providing an overview of the critical components of network security. The other component exams of CCSP then focus on specific areas within that overview, like PIX and VPNs, in even greater detail.
CCSP SECUR Exam Certification Guide (CCSP Self-Study) combines leading edge coverage of security concepts with all the proven learning and exam preparation features of the Exam Certification Guide Series from Cisco Press including the CD-ROM testing engine with over 200 questions, pre- and post-chapter quizzes and a modular book and CD organization that breaks concepts down into smaller, easy-to-absorb blocks of information.
Specific coverage includes security policies, security threat evaluation, AAA (authentication, authorization, and accounting), NAS with AAA, Cisco Secure ACS, IOS firewall features, encryption technologies, IPSec, PIX Firewall configuration, and integration with VPN solutions from Cisco Secure Policy Manager.
