This 5-day workshop will cover Network Security and Advanced Routing topics.
The objective of this workshop is to examine the key concepts, protocols and the policies involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building an understanding and familiarity with their operation. Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on different layers to establish a robust, stable and secure network and protect the data and processes that occur in the network.
The workshop also looks at the nature and structure of network attacks and the motivation that drives such on-line malicious activity.
The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate and respond to such attacks.
This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercise to teach design issues to build routing infrastructure, classifications and how to choose different routing protocols, Internet routing architecture design principles, OSPF, BGP, BGP traffic engineering and scaling tools i.e. Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities, Route reflector, peer group etc. Presentation cover detail protocol level operation an industry best current practise for both service provider and enterprise network.
The course also includes intense practical work based on IPv4 as well as IPv6 and Cisco IOS router configuration commands.
APNIC has 10 complimentary places to offer at this workshop.
Priority will be given to APNIC member organizations.
A limit of 1 person per organization may be imposed.
Any travel and accommodation arrangements and costs are to be covered by the attendee.
Engineers, Network Managers and Operators, Security policy makers who are interested in network security and gaining an understanding of the threats they face and how to mitigate such threats.
Mid level to senior technical and design staff of ISP, network operators or enterprise, who are involved in day-to-day network operation and planning function.
It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations and Internet technologies.
It is assumed that participants have a good understanding of network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model, TCP/IP and router operating system software (i.e Cisco IOS etc).
