CCNP Security - SIMOS Exam, easyvpn gone?

chrisonechrisone Senior MemberPosts: 1,846Member ■■■■■■■■□□
Just curious if anyone can help chime in on this. Based on the exam topics, it looks like Easy VPN is gone and FlexVPN is in. Am I missing something here? or am I correct to say that Easy VPN is truly gone and not a topic? I am using the latest VPN book, as well as PDFs on flex vpn (here is a great one by the way: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/sec_conn_ike2vpn/configuration/xe-3s/sec-flex-vpn-xe-3s-book.pdf ) There is about 200pgs on the VPN book covering easy vpn and I would hate to spend a couple weeks reading/lab work for easyvpn only for it NOT be on the SIMOS exam. Thanks


[h=3]Exam Description[/h]
The Implementing Cisco Secure Mobility Solutions (SIMOS) (300-209) exam tests a network security engineer on the variety of Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions that Cisco has available on the Cisco ASA firewall and Cisco IOS software platforms. This 90-minute exam consists of 65–75 questions and assesses the knowledge necessary to properly implement highly secure remote communications through VPN technology, such as remote access SSL VPN and site-to-site VPN (DMVPN, FlexVPN). Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Implementing Cisco Secure Mobility Solutions (SIMOS) course.

The following topics are general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the exam. However, other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam. In order to better reflect the contents of the exam and for clarity purposes, the guidelines below may change at any time without notice.
