MikroTik: MikroTik RouterOS v7 Hardening LABS

BNT-ONL-MT-035 by Baltic Networks

Fortify your MikroTik RouterOS security to bolster protection against network penetrations.


This course is tailored for engineers actively engaged with MikroTik routers in their network infrastructure.

MikroTik routers boast an array of default packages and configurable features, making them highly versatile. However, the same flexibility can pose risks if not properly secured. With this in mind, I've developed this course, enriched with numerous hands-on LABS, to guide you through the process of securing your MikroTik router effectively. The objective is to fortify your router against potential intruders or attackers, minimizing the vulnerabilities that could compromise your router and network.

The course is structured around detailed step-by-step LABS, offering thorough explanations for each session. It is my hope that you find the content both insightful and enjoyable.
