Cisco ASA Firewall Fundamentals – 3rd Edition: Step-By-Step Practical Configuration Guide Using the CLI for ASA v8.x and v9.x

This book has been available only in eBook format for several years and has been embraced by thousands of Cisco ASA professionals, from beginners to experts. This new edition, “Cisco ASA Firewall Fundamentals – 3rd Edition” is now offered to you in paperback format as well.

The new 3rd Edition has been enhanced and updated to cover the latest Cisco ASA version 9.x (and previous versions 8.x as well). All configurations, commands and examples in the book are applicable for all ASA 5500 and 5500-X devices and will work on ASA version 9.x.

This book is loaded with raw practical concepts, step-by-step configuration tutorials, and more than 50 network diagrams to explain the scenarios. It also includes complete configuration examples and real-world cases that you will not find anywhere else. There is no fluff or redundant information.

Topics covered in this book include the core ASA firewall features as well as the most frequently-encountered scenarios that you will find in real world networks. The book is written by network security expert Harris Andrea, a Cisco Certified professional with more than 18 years of ASA experience, and focuses on simplicity and practicality instead of complex theory.
