You’ll also perform several labs designed to validate your VLAN and network management skills.

  • CCNA Final Practice Exam Assessment — 60 questions — 00:30:00
  • Security+ – Secure and Insecure Protocols Lab — 00:30:00
    • Security by design is an approach to software and hardware development that aims to construct systems free of vulnerabilities by implementing best practices and safeguards. However, it is relatively new as a notion, and prior to it, the aim of software developers was more oriented in functionality than security. The same principle can be seen in protocols such as HTTP, FTP, or POP. Because they apply no data encryption, these protocols are often referred to as clear-text protocols. Anyone who is intercepting the traffic between two entities that communicate using clear-text protocols can see the data flowing through the network in plain text. These protocols gave rise to attacks such as Man-in-the-middle (a malicious actor impersonating legitimate users) and sensitive data exposure. To cover the security holes of clear-text protocols, versions that applied encryption to data were developed.


What you will learn

This learning path is the newest update to the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) path and prepares you for the latest version of the CCNA exam: 200-301 CCNA. You’ll explore network fundamentals such as routers and endpoints and take a closer look at network access, IP connectivity, IP services, security fundamentals and automation and programmability. Upon completion, you’ll be prepared to earn your CCNA and take your networking professional career even further.
