Managing Linux security properly lessens the impact of security incidents. Cryptography can play a role in securing Linux environments. In this course, I will start by discussing common Linux threats and their mitigations followed by going over the CIA security triad. I will then discuss how cryptography can secure data and how to manage Linux file system encryption. Next, I will discuss integrity and use Linux file system hashing to determine if files have been modified. Lastly, I will discuss the public key infrastructure (PKI) hierarchy, create a private certificate authority (CA) and certificate, discuss Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), and enable a Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) binding. This course can be used to prepare for the Linux+ XK0-005 certification exam.
