This Week: Hardening Junos Devices

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 divides Juniperís hardening procedures into four topic areas Ė Non-Technical, Physical Security, Operating System Security, and Configuration Hardening Ė and delves into sample strategies, example configurations, and dozens of suggestions and useful tips for each.

Encyclopedic in its coverage, This Week: Hardening Junos Devices is simply a book you cannot afford not to read. The authorís 15 years of experience supporting U.S. Government agencies makes this book applicable to high security environments such as service providers, financial institutions, government, and enterprise networks. But itís also pertinent to the devices in your wiring closet, or your branch office. Thatís because with Junos you get one operating system for your core or your edge or your branch. And 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. If you operate a Junos device, you need to read this book.

"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 covers all the bits and pieces you might never even consider, like securing the LCD menu." - Ivan Pepelnjak, Chief Technology Advisor, NIL Data Communications CCIE 1354 Emeritus, Independent Blogger (
