See all Courses


NGINX App Protect (NAP) is a modern application security solution designed to work seamlessly in DevOps environments as you deliver apps from code to customer. Built on F5’s market-leading WAF and bot protection, NGINX App Protect runs natively on NGINX Plus and integrates security controls into your application.

We recommend you complete NGINX Core, Instructor-led or On-demand, before taking Introduction to NGINX App Protect.

The course assumes a basic understanding of networking, web servers, HTTP, load balancing, caching, proxying, and related concepts.

Hands on labs are performed in a Linux environment. You will need to be able to navigate the file system from the command line and edit configuration files using VI/VIM. Additional experience with Linux environments will be helpful.
