This Week: Hardening Junos Devices, 2nd Edition Harden your organization’s security posture this week with this newly revised book and companion checklist on network device security!
Juniper Networks takes the security of its products very seriously and has created proven processes and procedures following industry best practices. This Week: Hardening Junos Devices, 2nd Edition divides Juniper’s hardening procedures into four topic areas – Non-Technical, Physical Security, Operating System Security, and Configuration Hardening – and delves into sample strategies, example configurations, and dozens of suggestions and useful tips for implementing each hardening process. All features discussed in this book are available and tested in Junos 12.3 (current recommended code) and for some features the book discusses options available in later code releases.
Encyclopedic in its coverage, This Week: Hardening Junos Devices, 2nd Edition is a book you can- not afford not to read. The author’s 15 years of experience supporting U.S. Government agencies makes it applicable to high security environments such as service providers, financial institutions, government, and enterprise networks. But it’s also pertinent to the devices in your wiring closet and branch office. Once you take care of the physical security, you can harden your Junos device to resist attacks and diversions, as well as the careless mishaps that haunt even the most experienced network engineer. This book also includes a handy checklist you can print or copy for each device you control.
“The best network design will not help you if you forget to thoroughly secure and harden your network devices. This book is particularly welcomed by those taking their first steps into the Junos world - it helps map concepts from Cisco IOS into various Junos dialects as well as covering all the bits and pieces you might never even consider, like securing the LCD menu.” Ivan Pepelnjak, Network architect, ipSpace.net AG, www.ipSpace.net
