OpenHack – Secure Networking (OHSN)


Course Overview

This OpenHack enables participants to plan for and build networking and security configurations. This will be done using recommended Azure Networking and Azure Networking Security products and tools. You will be focusing on best practices while working through challenges inspired from real-world scenarios.

During the hack attendees will focus on designing and implementing Azure networking solutions. These solutions will address the demanding needs of today’s global enterprises. Your team will analyze the customers’ requirements and design a secure network infrastructure. Hackers will propose multiple design solutions and evaluate which solution is best in their scenario.

By the end of the OpenHack, participants will have the knowledge on how to design and implement cloud networking and security solutions. Hackers will have identified solutions to improve workload performance, scalability, and security in Azure.
