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.
Linux Security Fundamentals (LFS216)
- Download files from the Internet, configure virtual machines, import a virtual appliance and a “host only” virtual private network. Basic Linux command line skills (covered in LFS201 – Essentials of System Administration) are required. Familiarity with Red Hat Linux, CentOS or Fedora is highly recommended.
Lab exercises in this course are designed to work either on native hardware, or using a virtual machine (VM), under a hypervisor, such as those in the KVM, VMWare, or Virtual Box families. Detailed instructions to set up your lab environment are provided in the course.
