SNORT IDS/IPS Course Overview

SNORT IDS/IPS Course Overview

The SNORT IDS/IPS course is a comprehensive training program designed for individuals looking to deepen their understanding of network security and intrusion detection/prevention systems. This course offers a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills through its structured modules.

Starting with the basics of network security, learners will grasp the critical concepts of the CIA Triad, network threats, and common attack terminologies. It delves into the network architecture, detailing the roles of firewalls, DMZs, and the principles behind IDS and IPS systems.

Snort, as a focal point of the course, is explored in depth. Learners will understand its operating modes, such as inline and passive modes, and how to install Snort in different environments. Rule writing is a crucial skill taught, enabling participants to tailor Snort's detection capabilities to specific threats.

Hands-on labs reinforce the theory, where learners implement Snort as both an IDS and IPS, analyzing logs and fine-tuning the system to effectively block malicious traffic. By the end of the course, participants will be equipped to deploy and manage Snort in real-world scenarios, ensuring robust network security.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.

Course Prerequisites

To ensure a successful learning experience in the SNORT IDS/IPS course offered by Koenig Solutions, the following prerequisites are recommended:

  • Basic understanding of networking concepts, including IP addressing and the OSI model.
  • Familiarity with network infrastructure and security devices such as routers, switches, firewalls, and intrusion detection/prevention systems.
  • Knowledge of the CIA Triad (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability) and its significance in cybersecurity.
  • Awareness of common network threats and the basics of how attacks are carried out.
  • Some experience with Linux and Windows operating systems, as the course involves installing and configuring Snort on both.
  • Basic command-line interface skills, particularly for navigating and manipulating files within Linux.
  • An introductory level of understanding of firewalls and network security zones, such as DMZs (Demilitarized Zones).
  • Readiness to engage with technical materials and hands-on lab exercises.

While these prerequisites are intended to provide a foundation for the SNORT IDS/IPS course, motivated students with a keen interest in network security and a willingness to learn new concepts will also find the course accessible. Koenig Solutions provides expert guidance and support throughout the training to help all participants achieve a comprehensive understanding of SNORT IDS/IPS.
