About This Course

This course is a comprehensive look at the security challenges that can affect almost every system, especially with the seamless connectivity we seek from the Internet. Many of the features for securing Linux are built in to either the Linux Kernel or added by the various Linux Distributions. This class explores many of these options to secure the systems. In some cases specialized Linux appliances are used demonstrate how one would interact with corporate production servers. This is an encompassing class experience that will further expand your awareness of security issues and preventative measures.

The class starts with an overviews of Computer Security and touches on how security affects everyone in the chain of development, implementation, administration and the end user.
