IS-2004-03: SAFE: A Security Blueprint for Enterprise Networks
The principle goal of Cisco's secure blueprint for enterprise networks (SAFE) is to provide best practice information to interested parties on designing and implementing secure networks. This document focuses heavily on threats encountered in enterprise environments. Network designers who understand these threats can better decide where and how to deploy mitigation technologies. By taking the threat-mitigation approach, this document should provide network designers with information for making sound network security choices.
