ACLs… Closer to the Source or the Destination?

The final video in the ACL video series answers the age old question: Where should you apply ACLs?

Specifically, we’re going to look at the ideas of applying ACLs closest to the source or closest to the destination; and in what cases you should do either, or neither.

The specific subjects and timestamps for what we talk through are below:

  • 0:00 – Start
  • 0:14 – Topology / Task Introduction
  • 0:26 – Standard ACL
  • 1:28 – Stepping through the Path to analyze Standard ACL Placement
  • 5:20 – Standard ACLs should be applied closest to the Destination
  • 5:55 – Extended ACL
  • 6:10 – Stepping through the Path to analyze Extended ACL Placement
  • 7:59 – Extended ACLs can be applied anywhere you want
  • 8:15 – Why should Extended ACLs should be applied closest to the Source
  • 8:53 – Practical Networking’s recommendation for ACL Placement
