This 14-video course explores common methods and uses real-world examples for providing resource access after authentication. Prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam by examining defense in depth, a security term for multiple layers of security. You will learn about Discretionary Access Control, where the resource owner sets the permissions. You will learn how to use the Windows command line to manage a Windows file system access control list, and you will examine MAC (mandatory access control). You will learn to modify the default file system access control permissions on a Linux host using umask. You will examine RBAC (role-based access control). You will learn to use Microsoft PowerShell to assign permissions to a Windows group. You will learn to assign permissions to a group in Linux, and how to modify the default file system access control permissions on a Linux host by using umask. You will learn to configure Attribute-based Access Control in Windows, and object-level access control. Finally, learners will examine NAC (network access control).
