When you are ready to take this exam, Microsoft assumes that you are ready to secure a Microsoft Windows 2000 network from all intruders. To make sure you are ready they have come up with a somewhat innovative format for the certification exam. As they put it: "This exam includes new types of questions that are very different from other exam formats currently in use." One major difference is case studies. You read the case study. You answer questions on the case study. Some of the questions also use innovative formats called build and reorder, select and place or tree-view style as opposed to the more traditional multiple-choice varieties.

CBT Vision has also kept pace with the content and format of the Microsoft exams that we prepare you to pass. We are committed to helping you pass your exam. Then you can go on to help other people secure their networks. The skills that exam 70-220 measures are summarized below:

Analyzing Business Requirements
This is certainly a new activity for some technically oriented people. It must be done. The case studies are a great help. Once you get used to reading them, you realize that they are full of hints as to the correct procedure and policy for a given situation such as:

Analyzing Technical Requirements
Questions that fall into this category will require you to evaluate the company's existing and planned technical environment or analyze the impact of the security design on the existing and planned technical environment. In doing these things you always have the case study itself as a crucial reference

Analyzing Security Requirements
takes you through tasks such as designing a security baseline for a Windows 2000 network and identifying the required level of security for each resource. In this case, you won't be reporting to anyone, you'll just be trying to pass a test.

Designing a Windows 2000 Security Solution
Yes, the solution will usually be from Microsoft, but you will need to know the right one to implement based on all the requirements you've analyzed. Solutions will involve auditing, delegating authority and encrypting files - as well as Kerberos, RADIUS and SSL.

Designing a Security Solution for Access Between Networks
At the enterprise level there is rarely just one network or a single domain involved. LAN, WAN and public network communication paths must all be secured.

Designing Security for Communication Channels
People that hack for fun, profit or spite tend to have an intimate knowledge of the paths that information takes from one host to another - even within a network. It will be up to you to know how to secure those paths from those people using technologies like IPSec, SMB-signing and IP filters.
