Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud Environments (RH415) is an advanced course designed for system administrators, security professionals, and IT personnel responsible for securing Linux environments across various deployment scenarios. This course covers essential security concepts, tools, and best practices for securing Linux systems in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Participants will learn how to configure security settings, implement access controls, monitor security events, and respond to security incidents effectively.
- Proficiency in Linux system administration concepts and tasks.
- Familiarity with basic networking concepts and services.
- Prior experience with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or equivalent knowledge is recommended.
The RH415 course follows a blended learning approach, combining theoretical lectures, practical demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises. Instructors will deliver comprehensive explanations of Linux security concepts and features, followed by practical demonstrations to illustrate their implementation. The majority of the course will focus on hands-on lab exercises, allowing participants to gain real-world experience in configuring and managing security settings on Linux systems.
