This presentation will focus on preemptive measures and reactive techniques that can be used to troubleshoot, secure, and maintain the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance. The main goal of this presentation will be to provide an in-depth understanding of the packet flow through the firewall device, as well as how to effectively utilize the available commands and on-board tools to troubleshoot connectivity problems. It will be assumed that attendees possess knowledge of security fundamentals and firewall technology at the level presented in the Cisco Networkers Online Introduction to Firewalls and Deploying Firewalls.
