    Default CCNA Sec & Sec+ crossover

    To those that have both Sec+ and CCNA Sec, approximately how much overlap is there between the two exams? I know that both exams cover cryptography, but with CompTIA being vendor neutral, there's bound to be more scope over a broader range than maybe CCNA Sec with it's focus on routers, switches, and AAA.

    I'm looking to take to Sec+ exam as an elective for MCSA:Security, so I need to get it done before the end of the year while it still retains lifetime certification.

    Thanks

    I think a bit Fuzz, for example as you say types of cryptography. But is there much security on firewalls/routers that is Cisco proprietary?
    I worked a bit with Draytek *shudder* creating VPN on their router/firewalls and they covered all that Cisco ASA's did, in a less complex way, via a messy GUI.
    Types of attacks you should know/learn about from hackers are going to be the same as hacker are also vendor neutral. LOL...

    When i did the CCNA security i can't say that it was focused directlty towards Cisco own product range, some parts yes. But for the most it was all "Best Pratice" or "Basic Secuirty" kwowledge that got me through.

    HTH.

    Ah great, thanks. So Security+ before CCNA Security will be a big plus then, gaining the base knowledge first before going on to the Cisco only topics, lie configuration and troubleshooting .

    I think I'll complete MCSA Security, finish CCNP, then look to the Cisco security route.

    Thanks

    If your thinking of the security route you should also look at Checkpoint, at the minutes it seem all and and everyone is looking for Checkpoint.

    No doubt BE. Checkpoint seems to be the flavor of the month right now.
