Securing the 65007600 Host Chassis

The following section is intended to give you an overview of the features that need to be deployed to ensure a secure infrastructure. It is beyond the scope of this book to provide an in-depth understanding of each feature. You should refer to the appropriate switch/router documentation for specific details. The National Security Agency (NSA) has a guide to securing routers that would be a good place to start (http://www.nsa.gov/snac/routers/ cisco_scg-1.1b.pdf).

You can secure the host-chassis in several ways, including the following:

• Controlling Physical Access

• Being Mindful of Environmental Considerations

• Controlling Management Access

• Disabling Unnecessary Services

• Controlling Access Using Port-Based Security

• Controlling Spanning Tree

• Leveraging Access Control Lists

• Securing Layer 3

• Leveraging Control Plane Policing

• Protecting a Network Using Quality of Service
