Enhance your security, using the security options of systemd – part 3
ENHANCE YOUR SECURITY, USING THE SECURITY OPTIONS OF SYSTEMD – PART 3
The best way to protect your system is a layered security approach. In case a hacker manages to breach one security measure, the layered approach guarantees all sensitive data is still protected by the other layers of security in place.
Systemd is one of the layers you can use to enhance the security of your host.
AFTER THIS CLASS YOU KNOW
In this third and final part of a series of masterclasses about systemd, you will learn:
- How to utilise security related kernel features with systemd
- How to further isolate your services
- The concepts behind container technology
- How to run Podman containers with systemd
- How to harden your containers with systemd
This virtual class is designed for system-administrators who want to learn systemd in detail and are interested in security and container technology.
It is recommended – but not mandatory – to have attended, or watched the recording of part 2 in this series (recording will become available around February 15). In that session we covered the protection and isolation of resources, networking and users. At the end there was a short introduction to some of the options that the kernel offers and can be utilized by systemd.
WHY YOU CANNOT SKIP THIS CLASS
Hardening of your systems can be very complex. The more complex the setup and configuration becomes, chances you will be making mistakes will increase, resulting in a system less secure than expected.
With systemd you have a central point of configuration. So even when you are going to use complex kernel features, it is at least easy to see what is implemented.
If you want to harden your system, a deep understanding of what is happening on your system is necessary. That also applies to running containers.
This class will be very, as the Germans call it, grundlich, and detailed. This is a class that closes all gaps you may have in your knowledge about systemd, and provides easy access to fragmented information you’ll find elsewhere.
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.
