Security for the most commonly deployed services.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux has gained considerable momentum as
the operating system of choice for deploying network services
such as web, ftp, email, and file sharing. Red Hat's RHCE
curriculum provides training in deploying these services and
on the essential elements of securing them.
RH253, RH300, or RHCE certification or equivalent work
experience is required for this course. Course participants
should already know the essential elements of how to
configure the services covered, as this course will be
focusing on more advanced topics from the outset.
This class advances beyond the essential security coverage
offered in the RHCE curriculum and delves deeper into the
security features, capabilities, and risks associated with
the most commonly deployed services.
The audience for this course includes system administrators,
consultants, and other IT professionals responsible for the
planning, implementation, and maintenance of network
servers. While the emphasis is on running these services on
Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and the content and labs will
assume its use, system administrators and others using
proprietary forms of UNIX may also find many elements of
this course relevant.
