After taking this course, you should be able to:
Describe Cisco ISE deployments, including core deployment components and how they interact to create a cohesive security architecture. Describe the advantages of such a deployment and how each Cisco ISE capability contributes to these advantages.
Describe concepts and configure components related to 802.1X and MAC Authentication Bypass (MAB) authentication, identity management, and certificate services.
Describe how Cisco ISE policy sets are used to implement authentication and authorization, and how to leverage this capability to meet the needs of your organization.
Describe third-party Network Access Devices (NADs), Cisco TrustSec®, and Easy Connect.
Describe and configure web authentication, processes, operation, and guest services, including guest access components and various guest access scenarios.
Describe and configure Cisco ISE profiling services, and understand how to monitor these services to enhance your situational awareness about network-connected endpoints. Describe best practices for deploying this profiler service in your specific environment.
Describe BYOD challenges, solutions, processes, and portals. Configure a BYOD solution, and describe the relationship between BYOD processes and their related configuration components. Describe and configure various certificates related to a BYOD solution.
Describe the value of the My Devices portal and how to configure this portal.
Describe endpoint compliance, compliance components, posture agents, posture deployment and licensing, and the posture service in Cisco ISE.
Describe and configure TACACS+ device administration using Cisco ISE, including command sets, profiles, and policy sets. Understand the role of TACACS+ within the Authentication, Authentication, and Accounting (AAA) framework and the differences between the RADIUS and TACACS+ protocols.
Migrate TACACS+ functionality from Cisco Secure Access Control System (ACS) to Cisco ISE, using a migration tool.
Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE) v3.0 is a Cisco ISE training program that discusses the Cisco Identity Services Engine, an identity and access control policy platform that provides a single policy plane across the entire organization, combining multiple services, including authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA), posture, profiling, device onboarding, and guest management, into a single context-aware identity-based platform. This CCNA course provides students with the knowledge and skills to enforce security posture compliance for wired and wireless endpoints as well as enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE.
