Your small business e-commerce website is about to go live but you haven’t yet addressed the issue of authentication and SSL certificates - and the guy from the company handling your credit card processing is on the phone...

Infrastructure security is - or should be - on everyone's minds right now. Websites, mobile devices, even your local data drives - everything is potentially vulnerable. Obscuring sensitive data through sophisticated encryption is one of the few things that can really reduce your risk exposure.

In this course, I'll show you how to configure and manage encryption on Linux-based systems. You'll learn to encrypt your website using either a well known certificate authority or by issuing your own certificates. We'll also cover encrypting the files on a PC or mobile device, and how to secure the all-important DNS service connecting your customers and users to your web-facing resources.

If you're reasonably comfortable working on the Linux command line with file systems, networks, and package management and have at least a basic general knowledge of TCP/IP networking protocols, then you'll enjoy taking this course.

If you're responsible for resources that might be vulnerable to security risks, then you'd better take the course.
