Networking and Security Administration of Red Hat Linux 5

Introduction

You have performed basic system administration and managed system services. But as a network administrator, you will be required to manage security and performance of multiple systems on a network.

In the Networking and Security Administration of Red Hat Linux 5 course, you will implement system security and user authentication between hosts using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

You will implement advanced system and network services along with security policies to ensure efficient network administration.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • manage system security and performance.
  • manage services to optimize system performance.
  • implement network resource access controls.
  • use DNS and DHCP to configure networks.
  • implement network file sharing services to facilitate secure resource sharing.
  • implement the web service to transfer resources and communicate across the Internet, which provides a simplified transport mechanism.
  • implement electronic mail services to communicate instantly and quickly.
  • implement data security to secure data transfer.
  • manage user authentication to allow only authorized users to access systems.
