This special CCSA and CCSE bundle covering Check Point Security Administration & Engineering (R77 GAiA) provides you with an understanding of the basic concepts and skills necessary to configure Check Point Security Gateway and Management Software Blades.
During this course, you will configure a Security Policy and learn about managing and monitoring a secure network, upgrading and configuring a Security Gateway, and implementing a virtual private network. This part prepares you for CCSA certification. The advanced part of the course provides you training on how to build, modify, deploy and troubleshoot Check Point Security Systems on the GAiA operating system. Hands-on lab exercises teach how to debug firewall processes, optimize VPN performance and upgrade Management Servers. This advanced part prepares you for CCSE certification.
Check Point's unified approach to network management and key components
Design a distributed environment and Install the Security Gateway in it
Perform a backup and restore the current gateway installation from the command line
Identify critical files needed to purge or backup, import and export users and groups, and add or delete administrators from the command line
Deploy gateways using the Gaia web interface
Create & configure network, host, and gateway objects
Using SmartDashboard verify SIC establishment between the Security
Management Server and the gateway
Create a basic Rule Base in SmartDashboard that includes permissions for administrative users, external services, and LAN outbound use
Configure NAT rules on Web and Gateway servers
Evaluate existing policies and optimize the rules based on corporate requirements
Maintain the Security Management Server with scheduled backups and policy versions to ensure seamless pgrades with minimal downtime
Use Queries in SmartView Tracker to monitor IPS and common network traffic and troubleshoot events using packet data
Use packet data to generate reports, troubleshoot system and security issues, and ensure network functionality
Using SmartView Monitor, configure alerts & traffic counters, view a gateway's status, monitor suspicious activity rules, analyze tunnel activity and monitor remote user access
Monitor remote gateways using SmartUpdate to evaluate the need for upgrades, new installations, and license modifications
Use SmartUpdate go apply upgrade packages to single or multiple VPN-1 gateways
Upgrade and attach product licenses using SmartUpdate
Centrally manage users to ensure only authenticated users securely access the corporate network either locally or remotely
Manage users to access the corporate LAN by using external databases
Provide granular-level access to network resources using Identity Awareness
Acquire user information used by the security gateway to control access
Define access roles for use in an Identity Awareness rule
Implement Identity Awareness in the Firewall Rule Base
Configure a pre-shared secret site-to-site VPN with partner sites
Configure permanent tunnels for remote access to corporate resources
Configure VPN tunnel sharing, given the difference between host-based, subunit-based, and gateway- based tunnels
Perform a backup of a security gateway and Management Server using your understanding of the differences between backups, snapshots and update-exports
Upgrade and troubleshoot a Management Server using a database migration
Upgrade and troubleshoot a clustered Security Gateway deployment
Use knowledge of Security Gateway infrastructures, chain modules, packet flow, and kernel tables to perform debugs on firewall processes
Build, test, and troubleshoot a ClusterXL Load Sharing deployment on an enterprise network
Build, test, and troubleshoot a ClusterXL High Availability deployment on an enterprise network
Build, test, and troubleshoot a management HA deployment on an enterprise network
Configure, maintain, and troubleshoot SecureXL and CoreXL acceleration solutions on the corporate network traffic to ensure noted performance enhancement
Using an external user database such as LDAP, configure User Directory to incorporate user information for authentication services on the network
Manage internal and external user access to resources for remote access or across a VPN
Troubleshoot user-access issues found when implementing Identity Awareness
Troubleshoot a site-to-site or certificate-based VPN on a corporate gateway using IKE View, VPN log files, and command-line debug tools
Optimize VPN performance and availability by using Link Selection and Multiple
Entry Point solutions
Manage and test corporate VPN tunnels to allow for greater monitoring and scalability with multiple tunnels defined in a community including other VPN providers
Create events or use existing event definitions to generate reports on specific network traffic using SmartReporter and SmartEvent to provide industry compliance information to management
Troubleshoot report generation given command-line tools and debug-file information
