Hi everyone, my name is Anthony Nocentino, enterprise architect and founder of Centino Systems, Welcome to my course LFCE: Network and Host Security.

Have you ever thought about how to secure your linux systems and the services running on it! In this course, we are going to get your started on your path to doing just that.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. First we’re going to cover linux security concepts and architectures to help you get your head around what threats you need to be concerned about and what techniques you can use to mitigate them.
  2. Then, we’ll talk about how to secure our hosts and services using tools like iptables and TCP wrappers and building more complex firewall systems, easily with Firewalld
  3. And finally, securing systems isn’t all about denying access to things...we need to be able to provide secure, remote access to our systems and we’ll look at that too with with a deep dive into using openssh for terminal access discussing how it works and also using it to provide graphic access and securely exchange data between systems
By the end of this course or By the end this course, you’ll know configure linux firewalls and securely access and exchange data on your linux based systems.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with linux operating system concept like logging in and also networking concepts like IP addresses and routing...and TCP based services.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn linux security with the LFCE: Network and Host Security course, at Pluralsight.
