Course Overview


This five-day course uses the Junos J-Web, CLI, Junos Space, and other user interfaces to introduce students to the concept of Juniper Connected Security. Key topics include tasks for advanced security policies, application layer security using the AppSecure suite, IPS rules and custom attack objects, Security Director management, Sky ATP management, JATP management, JSA management, Policy Enforcer management, JIMS management, Juniper Sky Enterprise usage, vSRX and cSRX usage, SSL Proxy configuration, and SRX chassis clustering configuration and troubleshooting.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and monitoring basic device operations. This course is based on Junos OS Release 19.1R1.6, Junos Space 19.1R1, Security Director 19.1R1, JATP, JSA v7.3.2, Policy Enforcer 19.1R1, and JIMS 1.1.5R1.
