( Duration: 2 Days )

This 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals (802.1X) training course teaches to configure and prepare to deploy Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) solutions based on Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), Cisco Catalyst switches, and Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers. You will learn the fundamentals of the 802.1X protocol and configuration, Cisco IBNS, configuring access for non-supplicant devices, Cisco ISE deployment options, architectural components, considerations with 802.1X, and more. You will also gain hands-on experience configuring 802.1X–based network services using the Cisco Identity Services Engine and a Cisco Catalyst switch.

By attending 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals (802.1X) workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Describe Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) for providing access control to corporate networks
  • Describe Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) authentication types and methods, and the role of Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) in EAP communications
  • Describe how to configure Cisco Catalyst switches, Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs), and Cisco ISE for 802.1X operation
  • Describe how to configure access for non-supplicant devices in an 802.1X deployment
  • Describe how to plan and deploy Cisco IBNS Networks with Cisco ISE and 802.1X

  • Cisco wireless LAN controllers
  • Basic command-line configuration of Cisco Catalyst switches
  • Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory
  • Attend a training on Cisco CCNA Security or equivalent practical experience
  • Attend a training on Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching or equivalent practical experience
