Re: Ideal setup for a home security lab?

Hello,

The following is listed for the the CCIE Security lab:

http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/ccie/security/lab_equipment.html

* Cisco 2600 Series Routers

* Cisco 3600 Series Routers

* Cisco 3700 Series Routers

* Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series Switches

* Cisco PIX 500 Series Security Appliances

* Cisco VPN 3000 Series Concentrators

* Cisco IPS Series 4200 intrusion prevention system sensors

* Cisco Secure Access Control Server for Windows

* Certificate Authority Support

* Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances*

I would 'aim' for that. Also go in the link and see the relevant code levels you should be working with.

Re: Ideal setup for a home security lab?

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your response. I am not looking for a CCIE lab at the moment.. I am just looking to practise on the basic security stuff with minimal equipment. Coz the stuff you mentioned is gonna get me bankrupt!!!! :)

I can get 2 Routers, 2 switches, 2 501 PIX, CSACS and probably a VPN Concentrator...

So dont you think this should satisfy the bare minimum security needs.

Thanks

Shyam
