This foundational Linux Permissions training prepares learners to use access permissions to control who has access to which files, and how to apply a fundamental level of security to the files and directories of your Linux systems.
Assigning permissions and updating file ownership is one of the most basic aspects of maintaining a Linux environment. Giving the right people the right permissions is fundamental to security, but obviously there's much more to maintaining a server's security. On the other hand, faulty permissions are a big open door to your system.
The differences between Owner permissions, Group permissions, and Other permissions are important to keeping files and directories clutter-free and efficiently managed. The commands necessary for updating and changing permissions and ownership in Linux are simple in theory, but can get hairy with convoluted directories. With this training, you'll be keeping a close eye on your server's permissions and updating them whenever needed.
After finishing this Linux Foundation training, you'll know how to use access permissions to control who has access to which files, and how to apply a fundamental level of security to the files and directories of your Linux systems.
For anyone who manages IT training, this Linux Foundation training can be used to onboard new server administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Linux Foundation reference resource.

Who Should Take Linux Permissions and Ownership Training?
This Linux Permissions and Ownership training is considered foundational-level Linux Foundation training, which means it was designed for server administrators with 1 to 3 years of experience -- or no experience at all. This Linux Permissions and Ownership course is valuable for new or aspiring IT professionals, experienced server administrators looking to validate foundational skills, and non-technical professionals.
Linux security user training. If you work on a Linux system in a non-technical capacity, you may have found yourself frustrated when trying to work with certain files or entire directories because a certain group or user wasn't assigned the right permissions. With this easy training in what Linux permissions are and how to change them, you'll never have to submit a trouble ticket for help getting access to a directory ever again.
New or aspiring IT professionals. New server administrators need to know how permissions and ownership work -- it's simply backbone-level knowledge. Nearly all other aspects of server administration and security depend on understanding permissions sets and who owns files and directories in Linux systems. With this training, you'll be on the right track to learning every subsequent aspect of administering Linux servers.
