This course is designed for students with previous experience NetScaler experience, and best suited for individuals who will be deploying and/or managing Citrix NetScaler Application Firewall (AppFirewall) to secure application access in a Citrix NetScaler environment, as well as NetScaler Management and Analytics System (MAS) to administer a Citrix NetScaler environment or optimize NetScaler-managed application delivery traffic. Students will learn the skills required to deploy and manage AppFirewall including types of web attacks, protections and signatures, the adaptive learning engine, AppFirewall policies and profiles, troubleshooting, and additional pertinent NetScaler security features. Students will learn the skills required for deploying and utilizing the NetScaler Management and Analytics System including the ability to manage multiple NetScaler platforms centrally, orchestrate configuration changes, report on transactions passing through the NetScaler environment, visualize infrastructure, and plan expansions. Students will also learn how to implement features including Caching, Frontend Optimization, NetScaler Web logging, and TCP/HTTP optimization to optimize traffic managed by a NetScaler environment. At the end of the course, students will be able to configure NetScaler environments to address application services security requirements with AppFirewall, as well as automate and manage network services for scale-out application architectures with Citrix NetScaler Management and Analytics System and optimize NetScaler managed application delivery traffic. This course is offered in instructor-led training (ILT)/virtual instructor-led training (vILT) formats with application of concepts through hands-on exercises in a live lab environment. As part of this course, students will receive the following materials: • Access to a lab environment for the duration of the course • Lab exercise guide • Access to final course deliverables including copies of all official materials presented by the instructor with additional notes and references as well as videos with experts throughout Citrix around course topics and lab exercises.
Before taking this course, it is recommended that students have completed the following courses: • NetScaler Overview (CNS-102) AND • Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Traffic Management (CNS-220) OR • Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Unified Gateway (CNS-222) Citrix also recommends an understanding of the following concepts and technologies: • Functionalities and capabilities of Citrix NetScaler • Basic NetScaler network architecture • Obtaining, installing, and managing NetScaler licenses • Use of NetScaler traffic management features • Basic Networking • Windows and Linux Server administration • Web Services • SSL encryption and certificates • Common web services attacks • 3rd party Network Management tools
