Implementing and Configuring the Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE)

Course Content

In this course, you will learn about the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)—a next-generation identity and access control policy platform that provides a single policy plane across the entire organization combining multiple services, including authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) using 802.1x, MAB, web authentication, posture, profiling, device on-boarding, guest services, and VPN access into a single context-aware identity-based platform. The training provides learners with the knowledge and skills to enforce security compliance for wired and wireless endpoints and enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE.

This course is an intensive hands-on experience. With enhanced hands-on labs, you will cover all facets of Cisco ISE version 2.3. You will learn how to configure fundamental elements of ISE and how to secure identity-based networks using 802.1X for both wired and wireless clients, using Windows 8 and Apple iPad endpoints. You will integrate the Cisco Virtual Wireless LAN Controller (vWLC) with advanced ISE features. You will also learn to use the following advanced features of Cisco ISE: Active Directory Integration, Policy Sets, EasyConnect, EAP-FAST with EAP Chaining, BYOD, AnyConnect 4.x Posture Module for LAN and VPN compliance, Threat Centric NAC using AMP, PxGrid, TACACS+ Device Management, and TrustSec Security Group Access.
