In this course, ISE Posture Services for CCNP Security (300-208) SISAS, you'll learn how to use Cisco ISE to posture clients as they come on to the network and control the type of access they gain. First, you'll explore the components of posture services. Next, you'll discover how to setup ISE to support posture services. Finally, you'll configure ISE to posture devices and control access. When you're finished with this course, you'll know how to implement posture services in an enterprise network.
Course Overview Hi there everyone. My name is Brandon Carroll, and welcome to my course, ISE Posture Services for CCNP Security (300-208) SISAS. I'm a Network Security Consultant and Course Developer at Global Config Technology Solutions, and over the past few years I've implemented Cisco ISE for several enterprise customers and each customer has similar needs and requirements. The Cisco SISAS exam tests your knowledge on the most common configurations that I've seen in these production environments. In this course, we're going to begin by learning about the components of posture services. Then, we're going to get into the configuration of each required element to get the solution up and running. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include how to configure a client provisioning policy; how to define the posture policy of our organization; how to posture a client and remediate, if necessary; how to handle non-corporate assets using the Cisco NAC Web Agent. By the end of this course, you'll know how to implement Cisco ISE posture services using Cisco ISE. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basic configuration of Cisco ISE, including authentication and authorization policies. We'll begin by creating downloadable ACLs and authorization profiles, so you'll need to be familiar with those as well. You should also understand web authentication. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn more about Network Access Control with the ISE Posture Services for CCNP Security (300-208) SISAS course, at Pluralsight.
