OVERVIEW

Manage security of Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems deployed in bare-metal, virtual, and cloud environments

Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud (RH415) is designed for security administrators and system administrators who need to manage the secure operation of servers running Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, whether deployed on physical hardware, as virtual machines, or as cloud instances.

This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5, Red Hat Satellite 6.3, Red Hat Ansible® Engine 2.5, Red Hat Ansible Tower 3.2, and Red Hat Insights.

Maintaining security of computing systems is a process of managing risk through the implementation of processes and standards backed by technologies and tools. In this course, you will learn about resources that can be used to help you implement and comply with your security requirements.

OBJECTIVES

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to reduce security risk and to implement, manage, and remediate compliance and security issues in an efficient way. The tools and techniques can be used to ensure that systems are configured and deployed in a way that meets security and compliance needs, that they continue to meet those requirements, and that all existing systems can be audited and remediations and changes consistently applied as those requirements are revised. This flexibility may help the business to efficiently reduce risk of security breaches, which have a high cost in business disruption, brand erosion, loss of customer and shareholder trust, and financial costs for post-incident remediation. In addition, the organization may be able to use the tools in this course to help demonstrate that compliance requirements set by customers, auditors, or other stakeholders have been met.

As a result of attending this course, you should be able to use security technologies included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux to manage security risk and help meet compliance requirements.

After completing this course you  should be able to demonstrate these skills:

  • Analyze and remediate system compliance using OpenSCAP and SCAP Workbench, employing and customizing baseline policy content provided with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
  • Monitor security-relevant activity on your systems with the kernel's audit infrastructure.
  • Explain and implement advanced SELinux techniques to restrict access by users, processes, and virtual machines.
  • Confirm the integrity of files and their permissions with AIDE.
  • Prevent unauthorized USB devices from being used with USBGuard.
  • Protect data at rest but provide secure automatic decryption at boot using NBDE.
  • Proactively identify risks and misconfigurations of systems and remediate them with Red Hat Insights.
  • Analyze and remediate compliance at scale with OpenSCAP, Red Hat Insights, Red Hat Satellite, and Red Hat Ansible Tower.

AUDIENCE

System administrators, IT security administrators, IT security engineers, and other professionals responsible for designing, implementing, maintaining, and managing the security of Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems and ensuring their compliance with the organization's security policies.

CERTIFICATION

This course will help you prepare for the Red Hat Certified Specialist in Security: Linux exam (EX415). Alternately you could attend the RH416 that also includes the EX415 exam.

NEXT STEP

This course is recommended for those interested in learning more about Red Hat Satellite or  for those who want to use DevOps practices to ensure security.
