This 14-video course helps prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam by exploring network concepts, including packet switching, the OSI (open systems interconnect) and TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/Internet protocol) models, network topologies, network infrastructure devices, and wireless router configuration. You will learn the differences between circuit switching and packet switching. You will examine the seven-layer OSI model that is used to describe communications hardware and software, including Layer 3 switch, and the Layer 7 firewall appliance. Continue by examining the TCP/IP model, a conceptual 4-layer model, and the TCP/IP protocol suite. This course then examines types of network interface cards, cable types, including coaxial and twisted pair copper, and connector types. Watch demonstrations of how to configure a wireless router, and how to configure NLB (network load balancing). You will learn to use a physical device or virtual appliance network load balancer, on-premises or in the cloud. Finally, this course shows learners how to configure a network load balancer by using AWS (Amazon Web Services).

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • explain how packet switching networks transmit data
    map network hardware and software to the OSI model
    map network hardware and software to the TCP/IP model
    compare ring, star and bus topologies in server and peer-to-peer networks
    determine when to use peer-to-peer versus server-based networks
    explain when routers and switches should be used
    compare fiber optic, twisted pair, coax. and wireless networking transmission techniques
  • configure common Wi-Fi router settings
    list the benefits of network load balancing
    configure a cloud-based load balancing solution
    describe how traffic shaping is used to optimize LAN and WAN network traffic flow
    capture and examine network traffic using Wireshark
    choose the network solution that best meets needs
