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.
