Description

This is the eleventh and final course in Cloud Academy's series preparing you for the LPIC-1 Linux Server Professional 101 and 102 exams. This course will focus on security. We'll explore the best ways to control access to the systems you administrate through limiting the use of root powers and by regular and focused filesystem scans. We'll learn how to optimize the effectiveness of your passwords and how to use super daemons to regulate remote connectivity. Finally, we will discover the power of data and file encryption through OpenSSH and GPG - the GNU Privacy Guard.

David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.

Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.

Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.

His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
