  • Ideally have an MTCNA certificate

Internet Protocol Security, or what is known as IPSEC, is a VPN protocol suite widely used nowadays in our network to connect 2 or more offices securely to each other using the public internet service, and this will save for companies a lot of cost and time instead of using dedicated leased lines between their offices.

However, configuring IPSEC correctly is a challenge because IPSEC is considered as a Framework protocol which has many sub-protocols and phases under its umbrella.

I have designed this course to help you to understand how IPSEC works, that means that big part of this course is going to be a theoretical part explaining in details all parts of IPSEC. During this course, I will explain also about a lot of security terms that we always hear and is used on IPSEC such as: Encryption, Hashing, Authentication, Deffie-Hellman, Symmetric and Asymmetric keys, etc.....

After the theoretical part, I am going to do LABs where I will show you how to configure correctly IPSEC on MikroTik Routers and we will test it to see if it works good. The LABs will include both versions of IPSEC which are IKEv1 and IKEv2.

That's in brief what I am going to do in this course, of course more details will be shown in the lessons.

I can't wait to see you in my course.

Who this course is for:
  • Students who want to learn and understand how IPSEC works and know how to configure it on MikroTik RouterOS
  • Engineers who want to apply IPSEC tunneling protocol in their networks
