Linux Security for Beginners

April 30, 2005

Michael D. ("Mick") Bauer, Security Editor of Linux Journal Magazine and author of O’Reilly book Linux Server Security, 2nd Ed, will lead the comprehensive Linux security seminar geared toward Linux newbies. "Linux Security for Beginners" will start from ground zero in explaining and demonstrating how to use Linux's powerful and flexible security features. The seminar will first cover the fundamentals of user/group properties, basic file-permissions, and simple system administration commands. Participants will then be lead through important "system hardening" tasks, including how to disable unnecessary system services, how to leverage common application security features, how to manage system logs, how to create an encrypted "loopback" file system, and how to use automated tools for system hardening and for post-hardening security scanning.

Those who attend are eligible for one free month of colocation at Hurricane Electric.

Attendees will receive a free copy of Mick Bauer's new book, Linux Server Security, 2nd Ed and the current edition of Linux Journal.

Presenter: Michael D. ("Mick") Bauer is Security Editor of Linux Journal, and by day works as Network Security Architect for one of the largest banks in the U.S. He is the author of O'Reilly book Linux Server Security, 2nd Ed, formally titled Building Secure Servers With Linux. Mick is an experienced and energetic instructor whose speaking engagements have included Def Con (twice), the Computer Security Institute's Annual Conference, and the Linux Lunacy 03 educational cruise.
