CheckMates in Switzerland

This week, we did a CheckMates Live event in Geneva, Switzerland!

We covered a few items:

  • Migrating to R80.10, which I gave.
  • Cloud Security Blueprint, presented by Peter Sandkuijl
  • Cryptomining, Why You Should Care? presented by Lior Arzi

 

 

 

 

Next week, I will be in Washington DC for the Local CPX National Harbor!

 

Community Highlights

Here are the top threads from the past week:

 

R80 CCSM Study Guide

This is helpful for CCSA and CCSE as well since the CCSM covers this and more!

 

Check Point R80.20 Production and Public EA 

The public EA build has been updated and now includes support for Security Gateway (in addition to management)! Remember, this is for sandbox/test deployments only unless you are part of the Production EA program.

 

No prevent option in IPS Port Scan signature 

If you have SmartEvent, you can "prevent" with this signature.

 

ICAP Server on Sandblast Appliance (TEX) 

If you weren't aware, you can enable an ICAP Server on a Threat Emulation appliance to integrate with other security enforcement devices.

 

GUI client unable to access R80.10 management server behind firewall 

Implied rules only work for gateways managed by the same management, not for ones managed by different ones.

 

MTA and Non Delivery Report 

Discussion about how to configure NDRs that need to be sent from the gateway itself, when it is acting as an MTA.

 

How come multiple public IP's aren't working? 

Related to network address translation and ARPs.
