F5 Networks Configuring BIG-IP AFM v14: Advanced Firewall Manager Course Details:

This course uses lectures and hands-on exercises to give participants real-time experience in setting up and configuring the F5 BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) system. Students are introduced to the AFM user interface, stepping through various options that demonstrate how AFM is configured to build a network firewall and to detect and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. Reporting and log facilities are also explained and used in the course labs. Further firewall functionality and additional DoS facilities for DNS and SIP traffic are discussed.
