Prerequisites

There are no formal prerequisites for CCIE certification. Other professional certifications or training courses are not required.

Exams

The CCIE Security Certification requires candidates to pass two exams: the written exam and the lab-based exam.

Exam 1: CCIE Security Written

Exam Number: 400-251
Associated Certifications: CCIE Security Written
Duration: 120 minutes (90-110 questions)
Available Languages: English

Exam Description

The Cisco CCIE Security Written Exam will validate professionals who have the expertise to: describe, design, implement, operate, and troubleshoot complex security technologies and solutions. Candidates must understand the requirements of network security, how different components interoperate, and translate it into the device configurations. The exam is closed book and no outside reference materials are allowed.

 

Exam 2: CCIE Security Lab

Exam Number: v5.0 
Associated Certifications: CCIE Security
Duration: 8 Hours to Complete

Exam Description

The CCIE Security Lab Exam is an eight-hour, 3 part, hands-on exam which requires you to plan, design, implement, operate and troubleshoot complex security scenarios for a given specification. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam.

You must pass the lab within three years of passing the written to achieve certification. Your first lab attempt must be made within 18 months.

Lab Environment

Cisco documentation is available on-line during the exam, however knowledge of the more common protocols and technologies is assumed. The documentation can only be navigated using the index, as the search function has been disabled. No outside reference materials are permitted in the lab room. You must report any suspected equipment issues to the proctor during the exam; adjustments cannot be made once the exam is over.

Lab Exam Grading

The labs are graded by proctors who ensure that all the criteria have been met. Candidates must meet two conditions to pass: The total sum of all modules must equal at least the minimum overall cut-score, and the sum for each individual module must equal at least the minimum cut score for the module.

Lab Format

The CCIE Security Lab exam consists of a 2 hour Troubleshooting section, a 1 hour Diagnostic section, and a 5 hour Configuration section. Candidates may choose to borrow up to 30 minutes from the Configuration section and use it in the Troubleshooting section.
