Check Point - Security Engineering

( Duration: 3 Days )

The Check Point Security Engineering Training course covers how to effectively build, modify, deploy and troubleshoot Check Point Security systems on the Gaia OS. This course covers firewall processes, user and kernel processing and Stateful Inspection. Labs include configuring security gateways, implementing VPNs, and performing advanced troubleshooting tasks on the firewall.

By attending Check Point Security Engineering workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • Perform a backup of a Security Gateway and Management Server using your understanding of the differences between backups, snapshots and update-exports
  • Upgrade and troubleshoot a Management Server using a database migration
  • Upgrade and troubleshoot a clustered Security Gateway deployment
  • Use knowledge of Security Gateway infrastructures, chain modules, packet flow and kernel tables to perform debugs on firewall processes
  • Build, test and troubleshoot a ClusterXL Load Sharing deployment on an enterprise network
  • Build, test and troubleshoot a ClusterXL High Availability deployment on an enterprise network
  • Build, test and troubleshoot a management HA deployment on an enterprise network
  • Configure, maintain and troubleshoot SecureXL and CoreXL acceleration solutions on the corporate network traffic to ensure noted performance enhancement
  • Using an external user database such as LDAP, configure User Directory to incorporate user information for authentication services on the network
  • Manage internal and external user access to resources for Remote Access or across a VPN
  • Troubleshoot user access issues found when implementing Identity Awareness
  • Troubleshoot a site-to-site or certificate-based VPN on a corporate gateway using IKE View, VPN log files and command-line debug tools
  • Optimize VPN performance and availability by using Link Selection and Multiple Entry Point solutions
  • Manage and test corporate VPN tunnels to allow for greater monitoring and scalability with multiple tunnels defined in a community including other VPN providers
  • Create events or use existing event definitions to generate reports on specific network traffic using SmartReporter and SmartEvent to provide industry compliance information to management
  • Troubleshoot report generation given command-line tools and debug-file information

Successful completion of this workshop depends on knowledge of multiple disciplines related to network-security activities including UNIX and Windows operating systems, Certificate management, System Administration, Networking (TCP/IP) knowledge, and Check Point Security Administration workshop/CCSA Certification.

The Check Point Security Engineering class is designed for engineers who need to perform advanced deployment configurations of a security gateway, including:

  • System Administrators
  • Support Analysts
  • Security Managers
  • Network Engineers
  • Anyone seeking CCSA certification
