The LPIC-1 and CompTIA exams have aligned so that you can gain both certifications by passing the one pair of exams. This course prepares you for the Part 2 exam and continues from the Part 1 course. This course is more focused on the services in Linux, such as the MariaDB server and email. We also take the time to look at implementing security. This is multi-faceted and we cover TCP wrappers, SSH, and encryption technologies. This has been an industry standard in certification for many years and this course provides your passport.
