In this intermediate Linux skills training, Shawn Powers prepares learners to take the security portion of the CompTIA Linux+ certification.
No matter how many developers the big OS providers employ, the number of developers working on Linux is still bigger. That’s the power of open source — and what makes Linux an operating system inherently secure, but it’s not hard to shatter that security. This Linux training covers how to keep your Linux servers secure.
After completing this Linux training you'll know how to secure your Linux system at boot by using the BIOS, UEFI, or boot loader, configure multi-factor authentication (MFA), manage users in order to prevent the sharing of IDs, disable hosts and unused or unsecured services, and how to enable SSL/TLS and auditd.
For anyone who manages open-source platforms training, this Linux training can be used for XK0-004 exam prep, onboarding new systems engineers, mandatory security training, as a Linux reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.
