The Windows Version of APG is Here!

APG generates passwords with two, three, or four random common dictionary words. It displays length and approximate bits of entropy. These types of passwords are among the most difficult to crack during brute-force attacks. Mathematicians have proven that the length of the password is often more important than the complexity. For example, if a person had the password “$3cureP@ssword!” versus a password based on four common yet unrelated dictionary words such as “supermarket-gallery-hang-voyage”, the latter would take far longer to crack during a brute-force attack. Additionally, people who are forced to use complex passwords often write them down. However, a password based on four common English words is much easier for someone to remember, and at the same time secure.

I recently took and passed Cisco CCNP Security FIREWALL (642-618). Unfortunately the test changed from 642-617 to 642-618 while I was in the middle of studying, so I had to study the deltas between the old and new tests using the Cisco Press guide. I used CBT Nuggets video training for 642-617 and the official Cert Guide from Cisco Press for 642-618. The biggest difference is that 642-617 covers ASA OS up to version 8.2, whereas 642-618 covers 8.3 and 8.4. In case anyone is interested, I’ve decided to share the notes I took in preparation.

Pro tip: Cisco made major changes to the way NAT is configured and processed in OS versions 8.3 and later versus 8.2 and before. Know them well.
