- Hey, everybody, it's Mike Myers, welcoming you to Cert Prep six, Network Security and More. This is the sixth of eight courses which collectively will help you pass the CompTIA A plus, Core two, 220-1002 exam. Now, in this particular course, we're going to be concentrating on, well, network and the security tools that help make those networks work. So we're going to be really dealing with things like network naming, DNS, it's important stuff to make sure your network's working the right way. Also, we're going to be taking a look at how we can share. Now, when we're talking about sharing, we're talking not just sharing within a Windows environment, but even things like Mac and Linux boxes, all sharing the same resources. And then, of course, security's important, so we're going to be dealing with things like the Net command, firewalls, and port forwarding. Then, we're going to take all this, and then we're going to go into wireless. Now this time, we're going to be talking about wireless in terms of security. How do you set up a wireless access point? What are some of the issues that we should be dealing with when we set up a WAP to make sure it's secure? And then we'll be going into wireless encryptions, make sure you know the difference between WPA, and WPA2, and maybe even a touch on WPA3. Now, if you're going to be using my popular CompTIA McGraw-Hill A plus book, you might want to be referencing chapters 19 and 20.
