Agenda

You can use several features of the Cisco ASA Adaptive Security Appliance products to defend networks, network-connected endpoints, and network infrastructure devices from various threats. This course provides an overview of the technology and major features of the Cisco ASA security appliance and describes the hardware characteristics and licensing options of the Cisco ASA security appliance products. This information will help you select the appropriate Cisco ASA security appliances and licensing to meet the needs of your organization.
  • identify characteristics of firewall systems
  • select appropriate firewall system technologies for a particular scenario
  • describe the features of firewall system technologies
  • select appropriate Cisco ASA network access control features for a particular scenario
  • describe Cisco ASA network access control features
  • identify the network integration features the Cisco ASA supports
  • identify the manageability features the Cisco ASA supports
  • select the appropriate Cisco ASA hardware platform based for a particular scenario
  • select an appropriate Cisco ASA SSM for a particular scenario
  • describe the features of Cisco ASA licensing options
To get started with the Cisco ASA and to prepare the appliance for Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), you should be familiar with the security appliance startup process. This course describes how to bootstrap the security appliance, prepare the security appliance for configuration via the Cisco ASDM, and launch and navigate Cisco ASDM.
  • recognize the Cisco ASA boot process and its factory built-in configuration
  • identify the features of the security appliance CLI configuration modes
  • recognize which command to use to manage the Cisco ASA flash files in a given scenario
  • identify the functions of Cisco ASA commands used in the file system
  • identify Cisco ASDM features and requirements
  • recognize how to prepare the Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance for configuration via Cisco ASDM
  • identify the components of the Cisco ASDM device and firewall dashboards
  • recognize the functions of Cisco ASDM interface components
  • recognize the features of the tool menu of Cisco ASDM
  • identify the Cisco ASDM wizards and their functions
  • describe how to perform an upgrade of a Cisco ASA security appliance
  • perform an upgrade of a Cisco ASA when a firewall configuration is not present
The Cisco ASA requires a minimal configuration to enforce a basic security policy in a network. Because of interface security levels, the Adaptive Security Appliance allows only traffic from more secured networks to less secured networks by default. Returning traffic is also allowed, because Stateful Packet Inspection is enabled by default. However, at a minimum the interfaces and basic routing need to be configured on an ASA device. This course describes the basic connectivity choices that you have when you are deploying a Cisco ASA. The course also describes the configuration and verification of basic settings, such as interface settings, static routing, and DHCP features on a Cisco ASA.
  • assess the Cisco ASA interface security level configuration in a given example
  • identify Cisco ASA interface security levels
  • recognize how to configure the interface network parameters on Cisco ASA 5510 and higher ASA's in given examples
  • recognize how to configure interface network parameters on the Cisco ASA 5505 in a given example
  • configure basic connectivity on the Cisco ASA by configuring the outside and dmz interfaces using ASDM
  • identify statements that describe the configuration and verification of VLANs and trunking on the Cisco ASA
  • identify the commands to use when configuring static routing with the CLI
  • identify the features of the Cisco ASA DHCP server
  • configure static routing on the security appliance
  • recognize how to troubleshoot basic connectivity on the Cisco ASA device in given examples
The Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance provides support for Network Address Translation (NAT) to solve addressing issues when your internal networks are interconnecting with external networks. NAT translates the source and destination IP addresses of traffic that is going through the security appliance. NAT often works together with the Port Address Translation (PAT) feature, which translates source ports in addition to IP addresses and enables many internal hosts to share one public IP address. This course describes the configuration, verification, and troubleshooting procedures that you use to implement NAT and PAT on the Cisco ASA security appliance.
  • describe how NAT works on Cisco ASA Software Version 8.2 and earlier
  • recognize how to implement NAT on Cisco ASA Software Version 8.2 and earlier in a given scenario
  • identify the considerations for managing NAT on Cisco ASA Software Version 8.2 and earlier
  • describe how NAT functions on Cisco ASA security appliances with Cisco ASA Software Version 8.3 and later
  • describe how the basic auto NAT configurations work on the Cisco ASA security appliance
  • describe how to configure NAT on the Cisco ASA security appliance using manual NAT
  • describe how to tune and troubleshoot NAT on the Cisco ASA security appliance using the Cisco ASDM and CLI tools
It is important to understand how to deploy basic management features on the Cisco ASA. These device management features include configuring: the device name, the system time, event and session logging, the device software, and the device licensing. This course identifies how to select management access choices, procedures, input parameters, and design and implementation guidelines. It also explains how to configure and verify time settings and support for NTP and logging settings and NetFlow on the Cisco ASA. The course covers the file system and configuration management, as well as software and activation key management on the Cisco ASA . You can access the Cisco ASA management interface locally, using the console connection, or you can access it remotely over an IP network. Configuring remote management access in a secure fashion is of paramount importance to ensure the integrity of the ASA in a possibly hostile environment, such as when management paths use an untrusted network. This course describes how to configure remote management access to the ASA, and how to configure and use administrator authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) features. The course concludes with guidelines and procedures on troubleshooting the configured management access functions.
