Red Hat® Security: Linux® in Physical, Virtual and Cloud


Red Hat® Security: Linux® in Physical, Virtual and Cloud

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

This course 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.

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.

This course is also available as part of the Red Hat® Learning Subscription.
