RH415 - Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud

Overview

Duration: 4 days

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.
  • Manage compliance with OpenSCAP.
  • Enable SELinux on a server from a disabled state, perform basic analysis of the system policy, and mitigate risk with advanced SELinux techniques.
  • Proactively identify and resolve issues with Red Hat Insights.
  • Monitor activity and changes on a server with Linux Audit and AIDE.
  • Protect data from compromise with USBGuard and storage encryption.
  • Manage authentication controls with PAM.
  • Manually apply provided Ansible Playbooks to automate mitigation of security and compliance issues.
  • Scale OpenSCAP and Red Hat Insights management with Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat Ansible Tower.

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.

Content

Manage security and risk

Define strategies to manage security on Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers.

Automate configuration and remediation with Ansible

Remediate configuration and security issues with Ansible Playbooks.

Protect data with LUKS and NBDE
