In this CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 course, you'll explore a variety of core secure protocols. You'll examine Domain Name System Security Extension (DNSSEC), SSH, Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Exchanger (S/MIME), Secure Real-time Protocol (SRTP), LDAPS, File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS), Secured File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3), Hypertext Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS (HTTPS), IPsec, Authentication Header (AH), and Encapsulated Security Payload (ESP) and its tunnel/transport modes. You'll move on to list several use cases for these concepts. You'll then describe endpoint protection, boot integrity mechanisms, database security mechanisms, and hardening targets. Finally, you'll identify several advanced application security techniques. This course can be used in preparation for the CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 certification exam.
