This three-day online course covers configuration – operation – and implementation of SRX Series Services Gateways in a typical network
environment. Key topics within this course include security technologies such as security zones – security policies – intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) – Network Address Translation (NAT) – and high availability clusters – as well as details pertaining to basic
implementation – configuration – and management. This course uses Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways for the hands-on component
– but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS.
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs – students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS for SRX Series
After successfully completing this course – you should be able to:
- Describe traditional routing and security and the current trends in internetworking
- Provide an overview of SRX Series devices and software architecture
- Describe the logical packet flow and session creation performed by SRX Series devices
- Describe – configure – and monitor zones
- Describe – configure – and monitor security policies
- Describe – configure – and monitor firewall user authentication
- Describe various types of network attacks
- Configure and monitor SCREEN options to prevent network attacks
- Explain – implement – and monitor NAT on Junos security platforms
- Explain the purpose and mechanics of IP Security (IPsec) virtual private networks (VPNs)
- Implement and monitor policy-based and route-based IPsec VPNs
- Utilize and update the IDP signature database
- Configure and monitor IDP policy with policy templates
- Describe – configure – and monitor high availability chassis clusters
Intended Audience: This course benefits operators of SRX Series devices. These operators include network engineers –
administrators – support personnel – and reseller support personnel.
Course Level: Junos Security is an intermediate-level course.
Prerequisites: Students should have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also either attend the Introduction to the Junos Operating System (IJOS) and Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses prior to attending this class – or have equivalent experience with the Junos OS.
