This chapter focuses on using routers and switches to increase the security of the network as well as providing appropriate configuration steps for protecting the devices themselves against attacks. Cisco routers are the dominant platform in use today, so where examples are provided, the Cisco platform will be discussed. This does not mean that Cisco is the only platform available - routers and switches from leading companies, such as Juniper Networks, Foundry Networks, and Extreme Networks, perform similar if not identical functions.
