Learn Network Technology and Security Fundamentals at your own speed
(PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week released its "Learning Network Technology and Security Fundamentals Tutorial," an advanced course designed for IT professionals or others with experience in IT who are interested in learning more about security standards and network protocols.
Network security demands knowledge of a wide range of topics, from network configuration and protocols, to transmission technologies and networking hardware.
Infinite Skills' "Learning Network Technology and Security Fundamentals" covers the primary models for setting up network security, the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocols, before taking users through all the details of securing and maintaining a network.
Course author David Miller is a well-published author and trainer on network security, most recently the CISSP Training Kit published by Microsoft. He began working as a network engineer in the early 1990s, and began to transition into the security aspects of corporate networking in the early 2000s. He is a qualified security assessor compliance auditor, with proficiencies including Security Plus, CWNA for wireless, and other certifications. Miller has worked regularly with Microsoft to produce certification exams for network security.
The course begins with an overview of the two primary models for securing networks, the OSI model and the TCP/IP Protocols model, and then looks at some essentials of transmission media and its technologies, introducing terminology, and the basic elements of networking.
Miller then goes in depth with network infrastructure, explaining routers, firewalls, DHCP, domain names, authentication, and more, covering all the points of contact and protocols in the process of transmitting data through a network.
He then looks at the particular problems with securing wireless networks, and then explores a number of basic network attacks and how to arm a network against them.
"In this course, we will focus on the core protocols for corporate and internet networks," Miller says.
"We'll look in detail at transmission technologies, and really understand the packages and frames that commute from one node to another, and we'll look in detail at networking infrastructure, the core pieces essential to a functional IT system."
