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.
