Learn the essentials of BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) by introducing you to both commonly used and advanced LTM features. This course will help you build a well-rounded skill set needed to understand and manage the BIG-IP LTM systems as part of a flexible and high performance application delivery network. This course will contain presentations followed by hands-on labs in instructor lead sessions. Topics that will be covered:
  • BIG-IP initial setup (licensing, provisioning, and network configuration)
  • A review of BIG-IP local traffic configuration objects
  • Using dynamic load balancing methods
  • Modifying traffic behavior with persistence (including SSL, SIP, universal, and destination address affinity persistence)
  • Monitoring application health with Layer 3, Layer 4, and Layer 7 monitors (including transparent, scripted, and external monitors)
  • Processing traffic with virtual servers (including network, forwarding, and reject virtual servers)
  • Processing traffic with SNATs (including SNAT pools and SNATs as listeners)
  • Configuring high availability (including active/standby and N+1 sync failover device groups, connection and persistence mirroring, and sync-only device groups)
  • Modifying traffic behavior with profiles (including advanced HTTP profile options, caching, compression, and OneConnect profiles)

The OWASP Top 10 is the de facto list of the top 10 most prevalent web application attacks. A challenge for many security practitioners is taking such a list of high-level attacks and turning those into real, actionable protection for our applications. In this session, we will demonstrate how we can quickly protect against the OWASP Top 10 by leveraging F5’s BIG-IP Advanced WAF module. Topics that will be covered:
  • Introduction to the OWASP Top 10
  • Hacking the Juice Shop web application
  • Leverage F5 WAF Tester to assess vulnerabilities in the Juice Shop
  • Rapidly create a BIG-IP Advanced WAF Policy using the Secure Guided Configuration
  • Explore the BIG-IP OWASP compliance dashboard to measure your policy effectiveness
  • Use the OWASP Dashboard to refine your WAF policy in order to mitigate the OWASP Top 10
  • Re-evaluate the Juice Shop application
