Workshop Details

Network Management and Security


  • 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.

Target Audience

  • Engineers, Network Managers and Operators, and Security policy makers who are interested in network security and want to gain an understanding of the threats they face and how to mitigate such threats.


  • It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations and Internet technologies.

Workshop topics

  • Network security fundamentals
  • Security on Different Layers and Attack Mitigation
  • Cryptography and PKI
  • Device and Infrastructure Security
  • Operational Security and Policies
  • Virtual Private Networks and IPsec
  • IPv6 Security

IPv6 Deployment workshop

This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercise to teach the concept of IPv6 protocol architecture, its addressing structure, design issues when planning for IPv6 deployment focusing on IP core network. It discusses network infrastructure design principles for dual stack deployment, OSPFv3, MP-BGP, transition technologies etc. Also presented for understanding and to encourage best practice knowledge.
The course includes considerable practical work based on IPv6 and Cisco IOS router configuration commands.
Target Audience
Both Entry and/or mid level technical staff of ISP, network operators or enterprise, who are involved in day-to-day network operation and planning function.
It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model, TCP/IP and familiar with router operating system software (i.e Cisco IOS etc).
Workshop topics

    • Internet Fundamentals
    • Routing Protocols – IS-IS and BGP
    • IPv6 Protocol and Standards
    • IPv6 Enhancements to Internet Routing Protocols
