What you’ll learn

The Introduction to 802.1X Operations for Cisco Security Professionals (802.1X) is designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to configure and prepare for the deployment of Cisco® Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) solutions. These solutions are based on the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), Cisco Catalyst switches, and Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers.

Participants in this course will delve into the fundamentals of the 802.1X protocol and its configuration, as well as gain insights into Cisco IBNS. The curriculum covers various aspects, including configuring access for non-supplicant devices, exploring Cisco ISE deployment options, understanding architectural components, and considering key factors related to 802.1X.

Moreover, the course emphasizes hands-on experience by providing practical training on configuring 802.1X-based network services using both the Cisco Identity Services Engine and a Cisco Catalyst switch. This hands-on approach ensures that participants not only understand the theoretical concepts but also acquire practical skills in implementing 802.1X operations for enhanced security.
