CCNA Recap: Port Security



Trunk ports and Etherchannel ports are not eligible for Port Security.
Why?

Etherchannel ports are bundled logically to look like one link with larger capacity than a single link.

Trunk ports carry all traffic.

switchport mode access
switchport port-security



Port security
  • does not care where frames come from (local device or other switches)
  • Watch incoming frames, keeps list of source MACs & counter of source macs

Sticky Secure Mac Addresses
  • Port security learns mac of each port and stores them so you don’t have to put in everyone by hand.
Because it's a switch  - Layer 2 - It's all about MAC Addresses.




show port-security [interface] #

Secure Shutdown
  • interface has been disabled because of port-security detecting a MAC address it doesn't recognize.

Protect
  • discards traffic

Restrict
  • Discards Traffic
  • Sends log / SNMP messages (161/162)

Err-Disabled Shutdown
  • discards traffic
  • Sends log / snmp messages
  • +1 violation counter per frame
  • disables interface and discards all traffic
  • default setting

Sticky

  • When someone plugs into the port, the switch remembers it. If someone else tries to, the port doesn't work.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
