SSFSNORT - Securing Cisco Networks with Open Source Snort

Course Overview

The Securing Cisco Networks with Open Source Snort (SSFSNORT) v2.1 course shows you how to deploy a network intrusion detection system based on Snort. Through a combination of expert instruction and hands-on practice, you will learn how to install, configure, operate, and manage a Snort system, rules writing with an overview of basic options, advanced rules writing, how to configure Pulled Pork, and how to use OpenAppID to provide protection of your network from malware. You will learn techniques of tuning and performance monitoring, traffic flow through Snort rules, and more.

This course will help you:

Learn how to implement Snort, an open-source, rule-based, intrusion detection and prevention system
Gain leading-edge skills for high-demand responsibilities focused on security
