Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE)


This course is an intensive hands-on experience. With enhanced hands-on labs, you will cover the Cisco ISE version 1.4 (labs). You will learn how to perform a fundamental installation of ISE and how to configure identity-based networks using 802.1X for both wired and wireless clients, using Windows 8 and Apple iPad endpoints. You will also learn to use many of the new features, including AnyConnect 4.1 Posture Module for LAN and VPN posture compliance, EAP-FAST, PEAP, BYOD, and EAP Chaining. You’ll also see how the new Virtual Wireless Controller (vWLC) works to integrate with ISE along with advanced features within ISE.

This course is focused specifically on the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), an 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), posture, profiling, device on-boarding, and guest management, into a single context-aware identity-based platform.

The training provides learners with the knowledge and skills to enforce security posture compliance for wired and wireless endpoints and enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE.

This course is based on ISE v2.1. Please note extended hours for this bootcamp.
