Why study this course

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.

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.

What you’ll learn

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.

You should be able to demonstrate these skills:

  • Analyse and remediate system compliance using OpenSCAP and SCAP Workbench, employing and customising 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 unauthorised 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

  • Analyse and remediate compliance at scale with OpenSCAP, Red Hat Insights, Red Hat Satellite, and Red Hat Ansible Tower
