Course Objectives

  • Describe Check Point's unified approach to network management and key elements:
  • Design in a distributed environment
  • Install the Security Gateway in a distributed environment
  • Perform a backup and restore the current Gateway installation from the command line
  • Identify critical files needed to purge or backup, import and export users and groups and add or delete administrators from the command line
  • Deploy Gateways using the Gaia web interface
  • Create and configure network, host and gateway objects
  • Verify SIC establishment between the Security Management Server and the Gateway using SmartDashboard
  • Create a basic Rule Base in SmartDashboard that includes permissions for administrative users, external services, and LAN outbound use
  • Configure NAT rules on Web and Gateway servers
  • Evaluate existing policies and optimize the rules based on current corporate requirements
  • Maintain the Security Management Server with scheduled backups and policy versions to ensure seamless upgrades with minimal downtime
  • Use Queries in SmartView Tracker to monitor IPS and common network traffic and troubleshoot events using packet data
  • Use packet data to generate reports, troubleshoot system and security issues, and ensure network functionality
  • Using SmartView Monitor, configure alerts and traffic counters, view a Gateway's status, monitor suspicious activity rules, analyze tunnel activity and monitorremote user access
  • Monitor remote Gateways using SmartUpdate to evaluate the need for upgrades, new installations, and license modifications
  • Use SmartUpdate to apply upgrade packages to single or multiple VPN-1 Gateways
  • Upgrade and attach product licenses using SmartUpdate
  • Centrally manage users to ensure only authenticated users securely access the corporate network either locally or remotely
  • Manage users to access the corporate LAN by using external databases
  • Use Identity Awareness to provide granular level access to network resources
  • Acquire user information used by the Security Gateway to control access
  • Define Access Roles for use in an Identity Awareness rule
  • Implement Identity Awareness in the Firewall Rule Base
  • Configure a pre-shared secret site-to-site VPN with partner sites
  • Configure permanent tunnels for remote access to corporate resources
  • Configure VPN tunnel sharing, given the difference between host-based, subunit-based and gateway-based tunnels
