Overview

Cisco ASA Core is a five day course that covers the Cisco ASA 9.0 / 9.1 core firewall and VPN features.  This course offers hands-on labs and is designed to teach network security enginners working on the Cisco ASA Adaptive Security Appliance to implement core Cisco ASA features, including the new ASA 9.0 and 9.1 features.

If you are considering this course, you may also be interested in ASA Essentials (ASAE).  The content in SASAC is very similar to ASAE and we have dates for the ASAE class. 

This course is designed for network engineers responsible for supporting Cisco ASA 9.x implementations.

In order to fully benefit from this course, it is strongly recommended that students have the following prior to enrollment:

  • Working knowlegde of basic IP networking
  • Basic Cisco ASA Knowledge
It would also be beneficial to have the following:
  • Successful completion of FIREWALL
  • Successful completion of VPN

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Explain the core essential features of Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next Generation Firewalls
  • Describe how to implement Cisco ASA basic connectivity and device management
  • Implement basic Cisco ASA network integration
  • Describe and implement basic Cisco ASA policy controls
  • Describe Cisco ASA common VPN components
  • Describe and implement Cisco ASA clientless VPN solutions
  • Describe and implement Cisco ASA and Cisco AnyConnect full tunnel VPN solutions
