Course Overview

Maintaining the security of computing systems is a process of managing risk through the implementation of processes and standards backed by technologies and tools. "Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud" (RH415) is designed for security administrators and system administrators who need to manage the secure operation of servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, whether deployed on physical hardware, as virtual machines, or as cloud instances. You will learn about technologies and tools that can be used to help you implement and comply with your security requirements, including the kernel's Audit subsystem, AIDE, SELinux, OpenSCAP and SCAP Workbench, USBGuard, PAM authentication, and Network-Based Device Encryption. You will learn to monitor compliance and to proactively identify, prioritize, and resolve issues by using OpenSCAP, Red Hat Insights, Red Hat Satellite, and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. You will have a basic introduction to how Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform automates the deployment of remediation to systems, by using Ansible Playbooks from OpenSCAP or Red Hat Insights.

This course is based on RHEL 9.2, Ansible Core 2.14, Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 2.4, Satellite 6.14, and OpenSCAP 1.3.7.

Course Objectives

  • Manage compliance with OpenSCAP.
  • Enable SELinux on a server from a disabled state, perform basic analysis of the system policy, and mitigate risk with advanced SELinux techniques.
  • Proactively identify and resolve issues with Red Hat Insights.
  • Monitor activity and changes on a server with Linux Audit and AIDE.
  • Protect data from compromise with USBGuard and storage encryption.
  • Manage authentication controls with PAM.
  • Manually apply provided Ansible Playbooks to automate mitigation of security and compliance issues.
  • Scale OpenSCAP and Red Hat Insights management with Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.
