End-of-Sale and End-of-Life

Happy new year to you all.

Some news that appeared mid Dec 07, if you have not seen this already..

Cisco have announced the end-of-sale and end-of life dates for the Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (Cisco Security MARS) models 100, 100e, 200, GCm, and GC.

Full info available here.

Ok following the trend of other blogs, my prediction for 2008! I predict Cisco MARS will get some new and very long awaited (overdue!) features :-)

I am going to start my CCIE Security studies this month. If you have had any success with building a lab with QEMU/PEMU, and Dynamips let me know!

Good luck with your CCIE. I'm working on my CCNP now and it's quite a lot to study. As for your question on IOS simulation... check out the GNS3 project ( It's a graphical frontend to Dynamips and works wonderfully. I've built a 6+ router lab using it. Just make sure you have a machine with beefy RAM and CPU.

I have PIX 7.2(2) running in qemu already. I just need to try the upgrade to 8.x.

As for the CNAC-CAM and CNAC-NAS, I have them successfully running in vmware and will probably do a write up on my blog about it in a week or so.
