Historically speaking, the vast majority of security practitioners, technicians, engineers, and architects come from the field of local and wide area networking. This factor, as well as the importance of protecting data-in-transit, makes networking a critical knowledge area. Use this course to get to grips with several networking concepts and methodologies. Learn to distinguish between the OSI and TCP/IP reference models. Explore network topologies, relationships, and media types. See what's meant by software-defined networking (SDN), Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), and terminal access controller access-control system plus (TACACS+), among other terms. Examine commonly used ports and protocols. And look into remote access connectivity and virtual private networks (VPNs). Upon course completion, you'll be familiar with several fundamental networking concepts and network access control methodologies. You'll also be further prepared for the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) 2021 exam.
