Welcome to the fourth of five courses in the Cisco Networking Basics Specialization. In the first three courses of this specialization, you were focused on understanding how computer networks work and how to access the network. Now that you have a firm grasp of that, you can dive deeper into how do you actually build and secure a home network that includes lots of wireless devices. Wireless requires different configurations than a wired network. Both wireless and wired networks are susceptible to security threats and attacks. You will work through the different types of threats and attacks that typically occur and understand the different software tools that can be used to mitigate those security threats. At the end of this course, you will be able to: 1. Build and secure a home wireless network. 2. Connect and configure a home wireless router in order to provide a secure connection to the Internet. 3. Describe different methods of connecting devices to a home network, including wired and wireless connections. 4. Explain how Wi-Fi communication is implemented in a small LAN environment. 5. Explain the inherent risks associated with wireless network connectivity. 6. Implement the best practices for securing wireless network access, including methods for secure authentication and encryption. 7. Describe common types of network security threats and attacks. 8. Explain how software tools can mitigate network security threats....

À propos de Cisco

À propos de la Spécialisation Cisco Networking Basics

Welcome to the Cisco Networking Basics Specialization. The five courses included in this specialization are designed for beginners in computing that want to understand the basics of how data is sent and received in a network and how small computer networks are created. People who may be in non-networking professions that want to understand how their home or small business networks actually work will enjoy this course. These courses introduce a variety of concepts, practice activities and simulations that help build the learner’s skills and understanding of computer networking. You will learn how to set up a basic home network, configure devices for connectivity, understand how communication takes place on a network, and what minimal best practices should be implemented to secure the network. Learners will also be introduced to Cisco IOS® software used to manage Cisco routers and switches. Previous networking knowledge is not required....
