Security is Key Theme
Security is the key theme throughout the three new FREE, Express Learning courses launched by Linux Foundation Training & Certification today.
- Security Self-Assessments for Open Source Projects (LFEL1005)
- Securing Projects with OpenSSF Scorecard (LFEL1006)
- Automating Supply Chain Security: SBOMs and Signatures (LFEL1007)
Like these three new free courses, all our Express Learning courses are designed to help IT professionals learn about a specific topic in 90-minutes or less. Everyone that successfully completes a course receives a digital badge.
Security Self-Assessments for Open Source Projects (LFEL1005) is designed for everyone involved with software maintenance who needs to conduct self-assessments on open source projects. Self-assessments are an essential first step for participating in joint assessments or security audits.
Securing Projects with OpenSSF Scorecard (LFEL1006) also is designed for anyone involved with software maintenance. The course focuses on the different checks provided by the OpenSSF Scorecard and teaches participants how to incorporate the OpenSSF Scorecard into their unique software development lifecycle.
In addition to software maintainers Automating Supply Chain Security: SBOMs and Signatures (LFEL1007) will benefit software developers and IT security professionals. Participants learn to create a plan to automate software supply chain security by evaluating dependency management solutions, creating attestations with the in-toto framework, verifying artifact integrity with SLSA, signing containers with cosign and automating SBOM creation.
“No matter what your IT professional role or career path, security skills and knowledge are required,” said Clyde Seepersad, SVP, General Manager, Training & Certification, Linux Foundation. “Professionals that complement their core skills with security skills stand out amongst their peers and increase their opportunities for career advancement.”
All three courses are open for free enrollment as of today.
