This 5-day course provides focuses on Enterprise Linux Network Security and protocols used in Linux, UNIX, and Windows 2003/2008 are examined. After a detailed discussion of the TCP/IP suite component protocols and Ethernet operation, the student practices using various tools to capture, analyze, and generate IP traffic. Students then explore the tools and techniques used to exploit protocol weaknesses and perform more advanced network attacks. After building a thorough understanding of network based attacks, course focus shifts to the defensive solutions available. Students install, configure, and test two of the most popular and powerful NIDS (Network Intrusion Detection Systems) solutions available. Finally, students create a Linux based router/firewall solution, including advanced functionality such as NAT (Network Address Translation), policy routing, and traffic shaping.
