The AJSEC – Advanced Junos Security is a three-day course, that provides students with the advanced skills in Junos security. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students gain experience in configuring and monitoring the advanced Junos operating system security features with advanced coverage of IPsec deployments, virtualization, AppSecure, advanced Network Address Translation (NAT) deployments, and Layer 2 security. This course uses Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways for the hands-on component, but the lab environment does not preclude the course from being applicable to other Juniper hardware platforms running the Junos OS. This course is based on Junos OS Release 12.1R1.9.
Course Level: AJSEC is an advanced-level course.
