Palo Alto and Panorama – Hardening the Configuration

Hardening Palo Alto Next Generation Firewall and Panorama (Hardening Network Devices)


As per Hardening Network Devices National Security Agency Cybersecurity Information, below points are covers in this Course.

The possibility of unwanted access to a network’s infrastructure is decreased by hardening network equipment. A malicious cyber actor might take advantage of flaws in device management and configurations to establish presence and maintain persistence within a network. Adversaries are increasingly focusing on targeting specialized and embedded devices, such as routers and switches, rather than only standard endpoints. They achieve this by managing routing protocols, exploiting configuration flaws, and introducing malware into the operating systems.

  • In the cybersecurity world, that means making that device more secure and resilient to attacks. By hardening a device, you are making it more difficult to break into for hackers.

  • Minimizing attack surface, or surface of vulnerability, and potential attack vectors
