Description

Linux Security Complete Video Course teaches you everything you need to know to build a safe Linux environment. Taught by best-selling author and trainer Sander van Vugt, Linux Security Complete Video Course covers every aspect of Linux security, including Linux operating system security, managing Linux user security, securing Linux services, and securing Linux infrastructure.

The topics in this course cover all the exam objectives and prepare you for the two most significant certifications in the field of Linux security: the Red Hat RHCA Server Hardening (EX413) exam and the LPIC-3 exam 303 "Linux Security" exam. Even if you're preparing for just one of the exams, it’s recommend that you watch all the lessons in this course, which lays out a framework for understanding Linux security, mitigating threats, and responding to incidents.

The material provided in this course is designed to help you learn and prepare in the best possible way. Each lesson provides an end-of-lesson lab that walks you through real-world scenarios as you learn.
