One of the Certifications could involve Specialization in
OpenBSD/*BSD, PF and CARP.
Presently our company
is planning to start Training Network administrators in these
technologies. And we have been thinking that some kind of
Certification will help people who take our course.
a name for it may be CBNSP ( Certified BSD Network Security
Professional) an advanced Certification in this line will include
other advanced topics related to it and may be called CBNSS (
Certified BSD Network Security Specialist)
The Goal of CBNSP would be to ensure that the certified persons will
be able to design and implement Secure Firewalls( integrated with
essential proxy services as required), VPN Gateways, etc to secure
Designing and Implementing Secure Firewalls does not mean just
learning the correct Syntax for PF and being able to write fool proof
rule sets but will also take into consideration things like.
1) Designing the and Implementing the best firewall solution for a
particular network using PF
like creation of DMZ, a separate network for NIDS and analyzing
packets on that particular network isolated from others sent to it by
the "dup-to" Option in PF. Handling more than one Internet connection
to the LANs and such.
2) Integration of the Firewall and Intrusion Detection Prevention
3) Implementing detailed logging policies and implementing easy log analysis.
4) Designing and Implementing MAIL Filter Gateways using a mailserver,
5) Integrating Squid Proxies with content filtering, Antivirus etc
6) Designing and Implementing secure wireless Gateways
and more related.
This was just a vuge explanation but hope you got the point :))))))))
Any ideas?? suggestions?? corrections??? criticisms???
