The Autoridade Nacional de Comunicações (ANC) presented Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) workshop on Network Security and Advanced Routing. This workshop was held from 12 – 16 August 2019 at the Conference Room of Ministry Transport and Communications (MTC), Avenida Xavier do Amaral, Dili, Timor-Leste.
The objective of this workshop is to examine the key concepts, protocols and the policies involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building an understanding and familiarity with their operation. Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on different layers to establish a robust, stable and secure network and protect the data and processes that occur in the network.
The workshop also looks at the nature and structure of network attacks and the motivation that drives such on-line malicious activity.
The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate and respond to such attacks.
This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercise to teach design issues to build routing infrastructure, classifications and how to choose different routing protocols, Internet routing architecture design principles, OSPF, BGP, BGP traffic engineering and scaling tools i.e. Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities, Route reflector, peer group etc. Presentation cover detail protocol level operation an industry best current practise for both service provider and enterprise network.
The course also includes intense practical work based on IPv4 as well as IPv6 and Cisco IOS router configuration commands.
