Network Security Technologies and Solutions
A comprehensive, all-in-one reference for Cisco network security
Yusuf Bhaiji, CCIE No. 9305
Network Security Technologies and Solutions is a comprehensive reference to the most cutting-edge security products and methodologies available to networking professionals today. This book helps you understand and implement current, state-of-the-art network security technologies to ensure secure communications throughout the network infrastructure.
With an easy-to-follow approach, this book serves as a central repository of security knowledge to help you implement end-to-end security solutions and provides a single source of knowledge covering the entire range of the Cisco network security portfolio. The book is divided into five parts mapping to Cisco security technologies and solutions: perimeter security, identity security and access management, data privacy, security monitoring, and security management. Together, all these elements enable dynamic links between customer security policy, user or host identity, and network infrastructures.
With this definitive reference, you can gain a greater understanding of the solutions available and learn how to build integrated, secure networks in today’s modern, heterogeneous networking environment. This book is an excellent resource for those seeking a comprehensive reference on mature and emerging security tactics and is also a great study guide for the CCIE Security exam.

Title is Misleading,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Network Security Technologies and Solutions (CCIE Professional Development Series) (Hardcover)Depending on where you are in your career is how I'm going to rate this book. If you are somewhat new to security, especially in the Cisco world, this book is the book for you and deserves 5 stars. If you have been in the Cisco security world for several years, are looking to study for your CCSP or CCIE, this book is NOT for you and deserves 1 or 2 stars.
This book does a great job on going over much of the Cisco security portfolio. It goes over the Cisco firewalls, AAA, NAC solutions, IPS, MARS, VPNs, etc. It gives some basic configurations for most of these. Again, I said basic and for a lot of these I would go as far as to say MINIMAL.
Again, if you are looking for study material for some of the CCSP exams or CCIE, this book wont get you close. Those exams dive WAY deeper into the different technologies than what this book offers.
My real issue with the book is the top line in the title "CCIE professional developement". If I see this and I see... Read more

All-In-One Cisco Security Guide,
This review is from: Network Security Technologies and Solutions (CCIE Professional Development Series) (Hardcover)During the first 7 chapters the author gives overviews of security vulnerabilities and attack mitigations in the current networking world. When finer points are confusing, there is detailed explanation to make the problem clear. For example distinguishing between MAC spoofing and ARP spoofing. Each threat is outlined with a description, background, problems, and mitigation techniques using Cisco configuration. This is not just a theory book but manages to fit in useful configuration examples in almost every turn of the page. This is not a quick read: you will want to have a lab setup to practice on while you read.
Unlike many security discussions that make much of vulnerabilites that are highly unlikely or virtually impossible to pull off, the author clearly states when an attack is improbable, and not worth the effort to consider.
The second unit of the book focuses on identity and access management. I found the sections on layer 2 access control most... Read more

Good but it takes more,
This review is from: Network Security Technologies and Solutions (CCIE Professional Development Series) (Hardcover)The book is surely a good reference and deals with many security topics,and is up to date.
Unfortunately many links provided are not working.
However it takes far more research on Internet to prepare for CCIE Security, and in some cases (such as Transparent Firewall or Multiple Contexts) to understand better, since they are very important and somehow too shortly addressed.
