Security Professional Bootcamp (JNCIP-SEC)

This bootcamp is designed to prepare students for JNCIP-SEC certification, in order to become a Professional on Junos Security. The content of the Advanced Junos Seucrity (AJSEC) and the Junos Intrusion Prevention System Functionality (JIPS) courses will be covered. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring advanced security features of the Junos operating system

AJSEC: This part of the course, which is designed to build off of the current Junos Security (JSEC) offering, delves deeper into Junos security.
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students gain experience in configuring and monitoring the advanced Junos operating system security features with advanced coverage of IPsec deployments, virtualization, AppSecure, advanced Network Address Translation (NAT) deployments, and Layer 2 security.

JIPS:  This two-day course is designed to provide an introduction to the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) feature set available on the Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateway. The course covers concepts, ideas, and terminology relating to providing intrusion prevention using the SRX Series platform. Hands-on labs offer students the opportunity to configure various IPS features and to test and analyze those functions.

Target audience: 
This course benefits individuals responsible for implementing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Junos security components and the IPS aspects of SRX series devices. This course also benefits individuals who want to obtain the JNCIP-SEC certification. 

This is an advanced-level course. Students should have a strong level of TCP/IP networking and security knowledge. Students should also attend the "Introduction to the Junos Operating System" (IJOS), "Junos Routing Essentials" (JRE), and "Junos Security" (JSEC) courses prior to attending this class.

After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of concepts covered in the prerequisite Junos Security course. 
  • Describe the various forms of security supported by the Junos OS.
  • Implement features of the AppSecure suite, including AppID, AppFW, and AppTrack.
  • Configure custom application signatures.
  • Describe Junos security handling at Layer 2 versus Layer 3.
  • Implement Layer 2 transparent mode security features.
  • Demonstrate understanding of Logical Systems (LSYS).
  • Implement address books with dynamic addressing.  
  • Compose security policies utilizing ALGs, custom applications, and dynamic addressing for various scenarios. 
  • Use Junos debugging tools to analyze traffic flows and identify traffic processing patterns and problems.

  • Differentiate and configure standard point-to-point IP Security (IPsec) virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, hub-and-spoke VPNs, dynamic VPNs, and group VPNs. 
  • Implement IPsec tunnels using virtual routers.
  • Implement OSPF over IPsec tunnels and utilize generic routing encapsulation (GRE) to interconnect to legacy firewalls. 
  • Monitor the operations of the various IPsec VPN implementations. 
  • Describe public key cryptography for certificates.  
  • Utilize Junos tools for troubleshooting Junos security implementations. 
  • Perform successful troubleshooting of some common Junos security issues.
