Chapter 56. RHS333: RED HAT enterprise security: network services

Security for the most commonly deployed services.

http://www.redhat.com/training/architect/courses/rhs333.html

56.1. Course Description

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.

56.1.1. Prerequisites

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.

56.1.2. Goal

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.

56.1.3. Audience

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.

56.1.4. Course Objectives

  1. Mastering basic service security

  2. Understanding cryptography

  3. Logging system activity

  4. Securing BIND and DNS

  5. Network user authentication security

  6. Improving NFS security

  7. The secure shell: OpenSSH

  8. Securing email with Sendmail and Postfix

  9. Managing FTP access

  10. Apache security
