Introduction to 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals


Introduction to 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals Certification Training Course Overview

The Introduction to 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals (802.1X) v2.0 shows you how 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.
