Configure Static Routing on Cisco ASA Firewall


Although the Cisco ASA appliance does not act as a router in the network, it still has a routing table and it is essential to configure static or dynamic routing in order for the appliance to know where to send packets. When a packet arrives to a network interface on the ASA firewall, the packet undergoes several security controls, such as ACL filtering, NAT, deep-packet inspection etc. After the packet passes all firewall controls, the security appliance needs to send the packet to its destination address. It therefore checks its routing table to determine the outgoing interface where the packet will be sent.

Cisco ASA firewalls support both static and dynamic routing. For dynamic routing, the ASA supports RIPv2 and OSPF. I recommend not to use dynamic routing though and stick with just static routes. The reason is that one of the purposes of a firewall is to hide your…

My take-aways on the Transformative Pedagogy Webinar with Dr. Lance Ford

Cisco Canada Blog

It is always a pleasure to chat with Dr. Lance Ford. He is so good at communicating verbally and visually that it is hard to remember we are actually videoconferencing with him. Very quickly the technology fades away in the background, as the conversation becomes more and more lively.

This is how we work and learn in the 21st century. The proof is in the pudding, as we say.

If you missed our February 10th webinar, I invite you to watch the recording. I jotted below some of my key take-aways, and I invite you to do the same by posting a comment below or by connecting with me via Project Squared or via email at

Defining The Digital Currency Professional


Editor’s note: David Berger is the CEO of the Digital Currency Council (DCC), an association of lawyers, accountants, and financial professionals in the bitcoin economy that provides training and certification, as well as connectivity with peers and the Blockchain. 

As new industries develop, new professions emerge. And when much is at stake and the industry is marked by an asymmetry of information between the layman and those in advisory roles, an organized process for defining and certifying those professionals is required. This process is critical for the success of the industry, as well as the success of those professionals who have invested in themselves to develop the much-needed expertise.

The digital currency economy demands a new knowledge set, as well as a means of developing and certifying that knowledge within an individual. The maturation and growth of the ecosystem depends on it.

Over recent months, with the input of our membership, we have…
