Enhance your security, using the security options of systemd – part 2
ENHANCE YOUR SECURITY, USING THE SECURITY OPTIONS OF SYSTEMD – PART 2
If you work with modern Linux distributions, systemd is a relatively easy way to keep hackers out. Of course, you need to be aware of potential problems in your operating system and the software you’re running on top of it, but at least you have some extra options to make it more difficult to abuse your system by adding extra obstacles and extra layers of security.
Systemd is not only a process that handles starting of other processes, it is a unified configuration and service manager. Systemd is the most important part of managing your Linux system and everything that runs on top of it.
Great, in-depth understanding of systemd not only keeps your system running, it also can help streamlining the orchestration of your environment and hardening your system.
In this 3- hour virtual class by Frederik Vos you will learn about systemd in a very accessible way, making it possible for your system administrators to do their job without huge investments.
AFTER THIS CLASS YOU KNOW
In the second part of a series of masterclasses about systemd, you will learn how to:
- Enhance the security of your system at filesystem level, network level, and for users / dynamic users.
- Enhance the security for specific services, like webserver and mailserver.
- Protect potential software problems with the security options available in systemd.
- Apply kernel capabilities to specific processes.
- Access control.
- Using Namespaces to set limitation on file and network level views.
- Implementation of system call filters.
- Application of kernel capabilities.
- Working with user and dynamic users.
This virtual class is important for everyone who works as a Linux System Engineer, or if you are in any other way involved in deploying / architecting / orchestrating Linux environments.
Preferably you have followed the first session of this ITGilde Guru Class (get your hands on the recording here), but this is not necessary to be able to follow this 2nd part.
However, you do need to have knowledge of systemd.
WHY YOU CANNOT SKIP THIS CLASS
Hackers try a lot of things to get into systems of organizations. Security of your systems is important, but often forgotten. Systemd is a relatively easy way to protect your systems. Moreover, it is a configuration that is applicable to all modern Linux distributions.
ABOUT ITGILDE GURUS CLASSES
Gurus classes are designed for open source specialists who wish to deepen their knowledge and expand skill-set on a specific topic.
Topics such as Linux memory, Kubernetes troubleshooting, Service Meshes, enhancing your security with systemd and much more. The selected topics are important for an outstanding performance, but most often knowledge that is very rarely transferred in a structured and concise manner.
The ITGilde Gurus are recognized experts in their field and share their insights with you which you can implement right away in your job.
In 2 – 3 hours you learn more about the Gurus Class topic and you will be able to interact with the trainer. Afterwards you will get 3 months access to the recording which can deepen your learning.
