  • Includes Assessment
  • Earns a Badge
Learners can explore how to secure virtual and cloud environments in this 12-video course, which examines different types of virtualization technologies, including hypervisors, application virtualization, OS (operating system) virtualization, and desktop virtualization. Prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam by examining hypervisors, a physical host that runs virtual machines, and appropriate software, and uses them to increase server density. You will learn about application virtualization, where the app files are not installed on the host machine, but run on the host machine. Next, you will examine OS virtualization where a virtual machine is assigned virtual hardware, such as virtual CPUs, virtual network adapters, and hard disks. You will learn how to install and configure a Microsoft Hyper-V Virtual Machine. Learn how to configure iSCSI (Internet Small Computer Systems Interface), and secure it by using CHAP (challenge handshake authentication protocol). Then learn to use AWS (Amazon Web Service) to secure data at rest in the cloud. Finally, you will examine laws and regulations to consider when using public cloud services.
