CCNA Security: SSL VPNs


    The Cisco Learning Network proudly presents a new series of video lectures on the topic of “CCNA Security: SSL VPNs.”


    If you are studying for your CCNA Security exam, or if you are considering a certification in security, an important area to understand is that of SSL VPNs.


    In this series, Brad Graham, who many of you may know from our previous video lectures series on IPsec VPNs (and from our study/discussion groups), answers some of the most frequent SSL VPN questions he encounters covering deployment, customization, and verification.


    This series focuses on both Clientless and Client-based SSL VPNs using the Cisco ASA with the ASDM software package. Additionally, customization and verification topics will be discussed to provide a deeper understanding of the features and operation of SSL VPNs on the Cisco ASA platform.
