Course Overview:

F5 Configuring BIG-IP APM v13: Access Policy Manager Training (APM13) – Hands-on

F5 Configuring BIG-IP APM v13: Access Policy Manager Training (APM13) covers three typical deployment scenarios for BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) and is broken into three individual lessons. In lesson one, you learn how to configure BIG-IP APM to provide Active Directory-based authentication for a load-balanced pool of web servers. Building on that, in lesson two, you learn how to create a policy that provides an SSL VPN (Network Access) resource to users, but only when they log into BIG-IP APM using a corporate-issued PC. Finally, lesson three builds on the first two lessons to create a policy that provides a dynamic landing page with both SSL VPN as well as an OWA (Portal Access) resource, but only to users with special authorization.
