Gain hands-on experience while preparing for the CCIE Security lab exam Master CCIE Security lab exam topics in a real-world setting with advice from CCIE security experts Work through detailed lab scenarios to understand how concepts are applied in real networks Learn how to build practice labs for executing scenarios Master advanced security concepts that you can apply to protect your network The Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert (CCIE) Certification from Cisco Systems is the most prestigious certification in the networking industry. In 2001, Cisco introduced the CCIE in Security. This exam, a combination of a written qualification exam with a one-day intensive lab exam is a highly sought after affirmation of a networkers security skills. A key to success in the intensive lab exam is hands-on understanding of how the security principles and concepts are executed in a real network. "CCIE Practical Studies: Security (CCIE Self-Study)" provides a series of lab scenarios that help a CCIE candidate or advanced-level networker gain that expertise. The labs show how, with or without a lab of actual equipment, different concepts are applied. Chapters include background and technology overviews, directions on how to set up a practice lab, case study-based scenarios that show the step-by-step implementation of these concepts, and comprehensive labs that mimic those in the one-day lab exam. "CCIE Practical Studies: Security (CCIE Self-Study)" serves as an invaluable guide in gaining networking security experience and in CCIE testing success.
