Network Design Project

By challies ·
I have a project to redesign our network, starting at our DSL connection and working inwards to the firewall, switches, etc. I am quite familiar with network design, but would still like some more information. I am wondering if anyone knows of some free resources (ie web sites) that discuss web design and security (other than Techrepublic). I am looking for guides on best practices concerning network design, security, etc.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

You do not say what type of network you are running, but you are using a DSL modem for you WAN side. You can put a router/switch with a hardware firewall to prevent any outside problems from your DSL. If you are certified you can get help on the manufacturers site with your access code. The Q&A sections I have found to be very useful. Novells is very helpful.

Cisco has recently published some very good resources on design of a secure network, both on their Web site and in book form. From a hardware perspective, much of their SAFE architecture may be overkill for your application but the underlying ideasare very useful to understand and once you get past the obvious bias towards their particular hardware, the concepts are presented pretty well.

Other vendor-operated sites are probably equally as useful and most have white papers on best practices using their equipment.
