Description

Standard ACLs allow a network security technician to control the traffic moving through their network and limit its propagation based on the kind of traffic and the source address.

Cisco devices use a proprietary Command Line Interface (CLI) called the Internetworking Operating System (IOS) to configure and manage them. They are also the most commonly occurring brand of networking appliance used throughout most organisations so knowing how to navigate the IOS CLI is a valuable skill.

You will be using a Cisco virtual network simulator called Cisco Packet Tracer. It is freely available on the web and is a great tool, not only for learning how to configure Cisco devices but also for learning networking and protocol functions.

This lab is part of a series on cyber network security.
