Configuring F5 Advanced WAF (previously licensed as ASM) (TRG-BIG-AWF-CFG)

 

Course Overview

In this 4 day course, students are provided with a functional understanding of how to deploy, tune, and operate F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall to protect their web applications from HTTP-based attacks.

The course includes lecture, hands-on labs, and discussion about different F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall tools for detecting and mitigating threats from multiple attack vectors such web scraping, Layer 7 Denial of Service, brute force, bots, code injection, and zero day exploits.

Prerequisites

There are no F5-technology-specific prerequisites for this course. However, completing the following before attending would be very helpful for students with limited BIG-IP administration and configuration experience:

or

  • F5 Certified BIG-IP Administrator

The following general network technology knowledge and experience are recommended before attending any F5 Global Training Services instructor-led course:

  • Routing and switching
  • Ethernet and ARP
  • TCP/IP concepts
  • IP addressing and subnetting
  • NAT and private IP addressing
  • Default gateway
  • Network firewalls
  • LAN vs. WAN

  • Provision the F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall
  • Define a web application firewall
  • Describe how F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall protects a web application by securing file types, URLs, and parameters
  • Deploy F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall using the Rapid Deployment template (and other templates) and define the security checks included in each
  • Define learn, alarm, and block settings as they pertain to configuring F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall
  • Define attack signatures and explain why attack signature staging is important
  • Deploy Threat Campaigns to secure against CVE threats
  • Contrast positive and negative security policy implementation and explain benefits of each
  • Configure security processing at the parameter level of a web application
  • Deploy F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall using the Automatic Policy Builder
  • Tune a policy manually or allow automatic policy building
