I’ve started reading a new book published by O’Reilly Media entitled Juniper SRX Series by Brad Woodberg and Rob Cameron a few weeks ago now. I’ve been reading up on the Juniper SRX in preparation to sit for the JNCIS-SEC test having passed the JNCIA-Junos test a few weeks back.
I’ve deployed the Juniper SRX 650 and the Juniper SRX 210H in a typical corporate branch office tunnel architecture utilizing route-based VPN tunnels with OSPF and Point to Multi-Point interfaces along with virtual router instances. Since that deployment I’ve really come to enjoy using the Junos CLI interface.
While there are a few grammatical errors (who am I to criticize) the book contains a large number of example configurations and actually shows the reader how to implement the feature and/or option as opposed to just defining it.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I received an electronic copy of the book, Juniper SRX Series, from Juniper free of charge.
If you are looking to take the JNCIA-Junos or the JNCIS-SEC you can find the study guides from Juniper here;
You’ll need to create an account with Juniper in order to access the study material.
I’m personally reviewing both the study material provided by Juniper along with the book, Juniper SRX Series, to validate my understanding of each feature and option.
