This course covers three typical deployment scenarios for BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) and is broken into three individual lessons. In lesson one, you learn how to configure BIG-IP APM to provide Active Directory-based authentication for a load-balanced pool of web servers. Building on that, in lesson two, you learn how to create a policy that provides an SSL VPN (Network Access) resource to users, but only when they log into BIG-IP APM using a corporate-issued PC. Finally, lesson three builds on the first two lessons to create a policy that provides a dynamic landing page with both SSL VPN as well as an OWA (Portal Access) resource, but only to users with special authorization.
This course is intended for network administrators, operators, and engineers responsible for managing the normal day-to-day operation and administration of BIG-IP Access Policy Manager.
