Implementing Advanced Cisco ASA Security

Description

Duration: 05 days

Introducing Python and Web Services Protocols for Network Engineers 3.0 is a 4-day hands-on course that focuses on the interoperability of Python programming with Networking to prepare the Next Generation Engineers for Software Defined Networking. This class is designed for Network Engineers and Administrators looking to add necessary programming skills in preparation for various ACI and SDN technologies as well as interacting with WEB Services on appliances such as the F5, A10, and Cisco UCS. The course has been modified to emphasize the skillset of data extraction for interacting with BIG DATA platforms.

To participate in the hands-on labs in this class, you need to bring a laptop computer with the following:

Windows 7 or 8.1 or 10 is recommended. Mac OSX 10.6 or greater is supported as well.
Intel Celeron or better processors are preferred.
1 GB or more of RAM
Browser Requirements: Internet Explorer 10 or greater or Mozilla Firefox. (Safari and Mozilla Firefox for Mac OSX)
All students are required to have administrator rights to their PCs and cannot be logged in to a domain using any Group Policies that will limit their machine’s capabilities.
If you do not have administrator rights to your PC, you at least need permissions to download, install, and run Cisco Any Connect Client.
If you are participating in a WebEx event, it is highly recommended to take this class at a location that has bandwidth speeds at a minimum of 1 Mbps bandwidth speeds.
If you have any questions or issues with meeting the requirements listed above, please contact us and provide the class name to which you are attending and we will be more than happy to help.

Curriculum

Module 1 – Lesson 1: Basic Constructs

This lesson describes foundational terminology within Python. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to explain many of the basic constructs, including their role within the programming language.

This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:

Describe and execute strings
Describe and execute printing
Describe and execute variables
Describe and execute built in methods
Describe and execute input from users
Describe Boolean

Module 1 – Lesson 2: Advanced Constructs

This lesson describes more of the advanced foundational terminology within Python. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to explain many of the advanced constructs, including their role within the programming language.

This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:

Describe and execute redundant scripts
Describe and execute functions
Describe and execute classes

Module 1 – Lesson 3: Scaling Python

This lesson will begin to apply the Python programming language to execute basic networking tasks. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to apply the constructs in the previous lessons to execute reading and writing to file tasks.

This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:

Describe and execute Reading Files scripts
Describe and execute Writing to File scripts
Describe and execute Reading and Writing to Spreadsheets
Describe Reading and Writing to Databases
Describe and execute substituting strings and integers
Describe and execute while loops
Describe and execute for loops and lists
Describe and execute slicing
Updating and edit a list
Error checking

Module 1 – Lesson 4: Dictionaries and Regular Expressions

This lesson will detail Dictionaries and Regular Expressions and it’s use within the Python Programming language. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able explain and construct programs that include dictionaries and regular expressions.

This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:

Describe and execute dictionaries
Delete dictionaries
Describe and execute dictionaries with lists
Describe and execute Regular expressions (match, search, findall, sub)

Module 2 – Lesson 1: Introduction to Web Services Protocols

This lesson will detail the basic Web Services Protocols used throughout the course. The RESTful API and Management Information Model are introduced as an extension of the common CLI over SSH method for accessing data.

This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:

Describe the common Web Services Protocols and Transport methods
