Tody begins CCNA Security discussion week 8. I would like to encourage discussion on the topics listed below.  As previously stated, I am not intimately familiar with the depth of knowledge required for items on the IINS blueprint. However, through work in the field and my CCIE Security studies, I have become fairly familiar with key topics themselves. I will note that this week is again mostly SDM stuff that others can be of more assistance than I (I don't generally use SDM).



I wish to thank the following individuals for their participation and discussion with last week's topics:



Leo Pastor

Jared H.


Travis Newshott

Previous Topics:


Describe the security threats facing modern network infrastructures
CCNA Security Discution Week 2 - Secure Cisco Routers
Re: CCNA Security Discussion Week 3 - Implement AAA on Cisco Routers
CCNA Security Week 4 - Mitigate threats to Cisco routers and networks using ACL's
CCNA Security Discussion Week 5 - Implement secure network management and reporting
CCNA Security Week 6 - Mitigate common Layer 2 attacks

CCNA Security Discussion Week 7 - Implement the Cisco IOS firewall feature set using SDM




This Week's Topics:


Implement the Cisco IOS IPS feature set using SDM

  • Define network based vs. host based intrusion detection and prevention

  • Explain IPS technologies, attack responses, and monitoring options

  • Enable and verify Cisco IOS IPS operations using SDM


IINS Blueprint:



I know that we aren't hitting every bullet point in the curriculum.  I also know that some topics are way out of scope for CCNA Security.  These are excellent discussions nonetheless.  Additionally, I think I have learned a lot about how I could make this more effective in the future.  As soon as I get through my CCIE Studies, I am going to make it a point to find out exactly what is on the IINS Curriculum and build a atmosphere here on CLN that will get us through all of the topics thoroughly.
