About the Book
This lab guide has been created to help candidates prepare for the CCNP Security: Implementing Cisco Edge Network Security certification. Complete with extensive labs that go above and beyond the requirements of the exam, this lab guide aims to educate candidates that work with Cisco security solutions and who want to better understand how they can secure Cisco network devices in general.
This guide has been created for candidates who have studied the material required for the exam and would like to put their knowledge to the test while learning to apply what they've learnt. The idea is that the details of the technologies are mainly left to the certification guides, thus giving you the chance to jump head-first into labbing.
Each lab is broken down into manageable sections so that candidates have the ability to grasp each concept before proceeding onto the next topic. To make your learning experience even better, full configuration output for each lab is also provided so that you can compare and experiment further.
Cisco has recently announced changes to their certifications. The revised changes mean that not all 300-206 exam topics will be valid after February 24th 2020. Although the lab content provided in this document will still be valid for security professionals working with Cisco technology such as the ASA, it is with that announcement that I have decided to provide a good set of limited labs.
This lab guide will no longer be updated with new content, instead, I will start work on new lab guides, ready for the release of new Cisco certifications.
