DNASEC-Securing Cisco Digital Network Architecture v1.0

Many challenges exist managing modern networks on a day to day basis. The problems are intensified when manual configuration changes using fragmented tool offerings result in non-centralized change and configuration management which leads to various naming, configuration, backup and security compliance issues. Manual configuration changes when compared to automated, policy-based approaches are slow and error-prone. Break and fix, new network builds and change requests in dynamic environments where user requirements, devices and applications are evolving at ever increasing rates fueled in many cases by the big data of IoT.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to deploy and setup a network built on DNA and SDA concepts and components and be prepared for the daily operation tasks associated with such networks.

The learner will meet these overall objectives:

  • Know and understand Ciscos DNA and SD-Access concepts, features, benefits, terminology and the way this approach innovates common administrative tasks on todays networks.
  • Differentiate and explain each of the building blocks of SD-Access solutions
  • Be familiar with fabric and node types
  • Deploy and configure Fabric Edge Nodes, Control Plane nodes and Border nodes
  • Configure LISP in Control Plane for SD-Access solutions
  • Configure VXLAN in Data Plane for SD-Access solutions
  • Configure TrustSec for segmentation and Policy Enforcement
  • Understand the role of DNA Center as solution orchestrator and Intelligent GUI
  • Deploy DNA Center and perform initial setup
  • Use the workflow approach in DNA Center and its 4 Steps: Design, Policy, Provision and Assurance
  • Deploy ISE and integrate it with DNA Center and SD-Access solutions
  • Deploy StealthWatch and Integrate it with DNA Center and SD-Access solutions
  • Monitor and Troubleshoot SDA operations
  • Know and understand the migration strategies from traditional networks to SD-Access solutions
