Course Overview
Hello, 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're going to get you started on your path to doing just that. First up, 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. Then we'll talk about how to secure your hosts and services with tools like IP tables and TCP wrappers, and also, building more complex firewall systems with firewalld. 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 do that with a deep dive into OpenSSH and how to use it for secure access to our systems and also how to securely exchange data between our systems. By the end of this course, you'll know how to configure Linux firewalls and securely access and exchange data between your Linux‑based systems. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Linux operating system concepts such as usernames and passwords, but also networking concepts like IP addressing, routing, and TCP‑based services. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn Linux security with LFCE Network and Host Security, at Pluralsight.
