Inline vs. Passive IDPSs
Your work as a network solutions provider is to become a network engineer and design enterprise networks. You began with the company as a technical support analyst who helped clients troubleshoot hardware and software. Because of your strong communication skills, your manager has been sending you on sales calls, but you feel that this task is moving you away from your goal of network engineering. As a compromise, you and your manager have agreed on a plan in which you will make a series of video training programs to explain complicated networking topics to clients.
Your first video will explain the difference between inline and passive IDPS devices. In preparation for video production, you must submit an outline of your presentation with explanatory diagrams. Prepare a two-page outline that defines inline and passive IDPSs, the hardware required, advantages and disadvantages of each, and situations in which one type is preferred over the other. Create and include at least two technical diagrams in PowerPoint, Excel, or Word (including PDF).
Use the Internet search engines and sectools.org to explore IDS systems and related applications.
The outline and two technical diagrams are worth 60 points.
