Course Outline
This highly technical 5-day course focuses on properly securing machines running the Linux operating systems. A
broad range of general security techniques such as packet filtering, password policies, and file integrity checking are
covered. Advanced security technologies such as Kerberos and SELinux are taught. Special attention is given to
securing commonly deployed network services. At the end of the course, students have an excellent understanding of
the potential security vulnerabilities—know how to audit existing machines, and how to securely deploy new network
This courses is currently offered on the latest releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This course is designed for system administrators and network administrators concerned with enterprise-wide network
security and authentication.
