A very exciting first day with swags, Cisco Champion giffs, and do networking with really nice people about new trends and challenges in the industry. Why Cisco Live? it’s the opportunity to talk with your peers, explore, connect, and be inspired by Cisco’s top experts, partners, and customers. It’s an event you don’t want to miss.
CCIE Security Techtorial – TECCCIE-3202
I was really interested on this session, but it turns out that it was just a lecture instead of a hands-on session like in other tracks. The session went smooth with some questions about ISE, ESA and WSA. A few videos were provided as well on how to configure certain tasks on some of the platforms mentioned before, not a big deal.
It was awesome to meet all the team and have some chat. I would like to say thank you to Yusuf Bhaiji, Ziaul Hussain, Vivek Santuka, Ana Peric

Security landscape is evolving fast, so fast detection and mitigation is important for customers. Many enterprises are looking to firewall vendors to provide cloud-based malware detection instances to aid them in their advanced threat detection efforts, as a cost-effective alternative to stand-alone sandboxing appliances.
SSL Decryption is one of the key topics, since TLS 1.2 to the TLS 1.3 standard will undoubtedly force changes in how enterprise firewall vendors process the traffic.
Policy Orchestration and Automation Become Critical on SDN deployments, some vendors haven’t provide much attention om this topic. Firewall Services Within IaaS Environments Become an Area of Differentiation.

After re-image FPR2110 from FTD to ASA9.8.2, the chassis (FXOS) mgmt interface UI become unaccesible giving the following error “Forbidden- you don’t have permission to access / on this server”.
In a nutshell, i could access FXOS via SSH and ASA (SSH & HTTPS) but the FXOS Chassis Management was broken. After spend some time, the only way to get this sorted was upgrade for the version 9.9.x
After upgrade, everything was working again.
Cisco Champion program is looking for the best and the brightes tech enthusiasts who are also active members of the community.

Do you have an associate-level exam that is coming up for renewal? Rather than retaking the same exam, you can now recertify your certification by passing another associate-level exam.
On September 21, the Juniper Networks Certification Program (JNCP) updated the recertification policies to allow for cross-track recertification for all associate-level exams. If, for example, your JNCIA-Junos certification is coming up for renewal, consider attempting the JNCDA, the JNCIA-Cloud, or the new JNCIA-DevOps certification exam instead. If you pass, not only will you have earned a new certification, but you will have also recertified an existing one.
Plus, you’ll be on your way to earning our new JNCIAx3 or JNCIAx4 multi-certification badges.

Dell EMC Networking OS10 combines the best of Linux, open computing, and networking to advance open networking disaggregation. OS10 is a transformational software platform which provides networking hardware abstraction through a common set of APIs.
You can enable consistency across compute and network resources for your system operator (sysops) groups that require server-like manageability, as well as leverage your existing network conguration.
You can simulate OS10 devices using OS10 VM appliances. The OS10 VM appliances execute the same software deployed on OS10-enabled hardware devices, with the exception of the hardware abstraction layer. The OS10 VM hardware abstraction layer simulates hardware devices in a VM environment.
All CLI commands as well as RESTCONF and SNMP interfaces are available in the OS10 simulation environment. You can build sandbox environments to learn open networking concepts, and prototype network operations and scripts risk-free.
OS10 simulation features
All OS10 CLI commands and north-bound interfaces (RESTCONF, SNMP) are available including:
- System management (SSH, AAA, DHCP, and so on)
- Management port
L3 data plane and control plane (using Linux functionality)
Partial support for L2 data plane and control plane (using Linux functionality):
OS10 feature limitations
- No ACL or QoS support (NPU is not available) — ACL and QoS CLI commands are available (but have no eﬀect on trafc)
- Limited L2 functionality (NPU is not available on simulator) — no spanning-tree control plane functionality
- No breakout mode for simulated ports
- Defaults to S6000-ON hardware platform simulation
- Workstation or laptop with 16 GB RAM or larger recommended
- 64-bit x86 CPU with 2 GHz or faster core speed (dual-core or larger recommended)
- SDD with 64 GB available space
- Virtualization environment — you can use either Windows, Linux, or VMware ESXi as a host system for the GNS3 Server VM environment
- VMware ESXi server recommended for large network simulation

Cisco Fire Jumper program is composed by different tracks, and each has a Sales, Systems Engineer and Field role with dedicated videos, training, POV, Labs and exams to be accomplished. After completed all four stages, you need to ask your Manager to endorse and send en email to fire jumper team. Once accepted you are going to receive an certificate. I’ve focused on the Network Security System Engineer role where i achieved the Stage 5. Looking for the Elite now.
Dissecting the Different Tracks
Network Security: Firepower, ASA and Meraki
Advanced Threat: AMP for Endpoints and Threat Grid
Visibility & Enforcement: ISE, Stealthwatch and SDA
Cloud, Web & Email Security: Cisco Umbrella, Cloudlock, WSA and Email Security
At the moment you can only be Stage 5 in one track and Stage 4 on all of them. Once you achieve this you become Fire Jumper Elite.

This came as a customer request, where they required to send multicast for testing purposes to their own customers but without using a RP. A Cisco ASA is segregating the environment acting as Layer 3 between the multicast sender and receivers. The first step was disabling the snooping on the switching to let the traffic going through, and last but not least setup a static group on the ASA to flood the interface outwards to the receivers. The challenge was the PIM, which has to be enabled but can’t have a neighbourship otherwise the interface is not going to flood the multicast out, so how do we make this work?
I’m running code Cisco ASA 9.1(7) with multicast-routing enabled
Because i have the firewall connect to a DMZ switch i have to disable the IGMP snooping on the switch
Setup a Filter to not allow the neighbourship but having the PIM enabled, and the static group to force the ASA to join particular multicast address (22.214.171.124)
You have to Deny the host adjacent in this case was 10.101.201.43
ip address 10.111.201.41 255.255.255.248 standby 10.111.201.42
pim neighbor-filter CSC_FILTER_PIM
igmp static-group 126.96.36.199
If a PIM neighbourship was established, that needs to expire before the interface starts flooding the traffic, if you see Nbr Count=0 you are almost there
Address Interface PIM Nbr Hello DR DR
Count Intvl Prior
10.101.201.41 CSC-LON9 on 0 30 1 this system

CSC-LON9 is up, line protocol is up

IGMP query interval is 125 seconds

Now the interface is forwarding the multicast, if you see Null you missed something

2 months in a rush was what i needed to finish my CCNA Cyber Ops, it’s composed by 2 exams:
- 210-250 SECFND
- 210-255 SECOPS
The e-learning was part of the Cisco scholarship, so i had all materials required to learn what was required for each exam. The SECOPS exam it was a bit more difficult due his nature of different language.
