Course Networking Junior Specialist | CYBER SECURITY duration Weekend
In today's highly interconnected world, IT Security represents a field of specialization that is increasingly taking on a significant weight within company processes and in the working environment. In this context, the Network Specialists profile is one of the most requested figures.
Summary of contents
This basic course, which develops within a wider training path in the field of Cyber Security, will allow students to gain solid foundations in order to be specialized in particular subjects such as that of the Penetration Test or Digital Forensics.
It will take place in a creative environment, where the theory goes hand in hand with a substantial part of the laboratory for practical sessions, with the aim of speeding up and facilitating the learning of more complex topics.
- Introduction to networks, ISO-OSI model, Network devices, Addressing schemes, Introduction to Netkit;
- Introduction to Switching, Routing Tables, OSPF, "Distance-vector" and "link-state" Routing, RIP and RIPng, Access Control Lists, DHCP, NAT;
- Ethernet, VLAN, Inter VLAN Routing, VTP, STP, single-area and multi-area OSPF;
- VPN, Serial and Broadband Connections, Quality of Service (QoS) Routing, Introduction to Software Defined Networking - SDN.
Module 1 - Introduction to Networks
Introduction to the architecture, structure, functions, components and models of the Internet and other computer networks. Presentation of the principles and structure of IP addresses and of the fundamental concepts, of the "media" and of the functioning of Ethernet, as the conceptual basis of the "curriculum". At the end of the course, students will be able to build a simple local network, to perform the basic configuration of routers and switches, and to implement IP addressing schemes.
Module 2 - Routing and Switching Essentials
This module will describe the architectures, components and operation of routers and switches in a simple local network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for their basic operation. At the end of this module, participants will be able to configure and correct the operation of routers and switches, and to solve common problems related to RIP, RIPng, single-area OSFP, VLAN-Virtual LAN and routing between VLANs, both in IPv4 and in Ipv6 networks.
Module 3 - Scaling Networks
The third module describes the architectures, components and operation of routers and switches in more complex networks. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for more advanced operation. At the end of the course, participants will be able to configure and correct the operation of routers and switches, and to solve common problems related to OSPF, EIGRP and STP both in IPv4 and in IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills necessary to implement a small to medium-sized WLAN.
Module 4 - Connecting Networks
This course covers the WAN technologies and network services needed for applications converging in complex networks. The course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network equipment and WAN technologies that meet network requirements. Students learn how to configure and correct the operation of network devices, and how to solve common problems related to data link level protocols. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills necessary to implement the operation of a VPN-Virtual Private Network in a complex network.
During the interview, the details of the individual teaching units will be provided.
Minimum requirements: a basic knowledge of the use of computers and curiosities about the world of information technologies and security issues.
At the end of this course participants will acquire the necessary knowledge for operating in the field of network management. In fact, after these module, attendants can upgrade their curricula to a Networking Junior Specialist capable of installing, configuring, managing and solving problems on medium-sized wired networks, distributed both locally (Local Area Network ) and geographic links (Wide Area Network), including the implementation and verification of connections to remote sites via WAN. Furthermore, the course contents provide a solid preparation to take the exam of the main international certifications required by the job market, also available at the Geeks Academy.
