Securing Networks with ASA Advanced (SNAA)


SNAF (Securing Networks with ASA Fundamental)

Course Content

Securing Networks with ASA Advanced (SNAA) v1.0 is a new course to replace the Cisco Secure Virtual Private Networks (CSVPN) & Securing Networks with PIX and ASA (SNPA) courses. In order to cover new features in ASA software version 8.0 and to fully cover the VPN features of the ASA, the content of SNPA was split into two courses, one that covers the fundamentals and on that covers more advanced topics. Content that has been moved to SNAA includes the following: configuring the ASA 5505 dual-ISP support, configuring ASA 5505 VLANs, configuring policy NAT, installing and configuring the Cisco Secure Desktop, configuring the security appliance to pass multicast traffic, configuring Layer 7 class maps and policy maps, and initializing the AIP-SSM and CSC-SSM. SNAA also utilizes the graphical user interface instead of the command line interface for explanation and discussions of configuring the ASA. The SNAA 1.0 course takes a task-oriented approach to teaching the skills to deploy, configure, and administer the Cisco ASA using a fictional company's deployment of an ASA which is based on real world scenarios.
