This two-day course is designed to provide students with the knowledge required to configure and manage edge security services on devices running the Junos operating system. This course focuses on the main configuration components of edge security services, including service set configuration and service processing, stateful firewall services, IPsec services, threat management, CGN technologies, softwire technologies, high availability, and load balancing.
This course uses MX 3D Universal Edge Routers for the hands-on component. This course is based on Junos software Release 12.3R2.5.
Junos Edge Security Services is an intermediate-level course.
After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:
- Provide an overview of security features enabled using MX Series services.
- Describe services, service sets, and service interfaces.
- Enable MX Series services.
- Describe the packet processing through services on MX Series devices employing security services.
- Demonstrate knowledge of stateful firewall traffic flows through an MX Series device.
- Implement stateful firewall rules on MX Series devices.
- Provide an overview of IPsec technology.
- Configure and monitor IPsec operation on an MX Series device.
- Troubleshoot IPsec operations.
- Provide an overview of application awareness services on MX Series devices.
- Implement Application-Aware Access Lists on MX Series devices.
- Describe how to mitigate IPv4 address exhaustion.
- Explain how to implement NAT.
- Describe the different CGN implementations.
- Describe how to implement NAT444.
- Explain how to implement NAT64.
- Describe how to implement 6rd.
- Explain how to implement DS-Lite.
- Describe MS PIC redundancy.
- Explain how to implement CGN logging.
- Describe various NAT pool and port options.
- Describe ECMP load-balancing as it pertains to CGN.
- Explain VRF-based CGN deployments.
