Red Hat Enterprise Security Network Services (RHS333)
Security for the most commonly deployed services
Red Hat® Enterprise Security: Network Services (RHS333) is an intensive course that equips senior system administrators and security professionals with the skills and knowledge required to harden systems against both internal and external attacks.
This class advances beyond the essential security coverage offered in the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE®) curriculum and delves more deeply into the security features, capabilities, and how to properly respond to sophisticated security threats aimed at enterprise systems. You'll also get an in-depth analysis of the ever-changing threat models as they pertain to Red Hat Enterprise Linux®. At the end of the 4-day course, you should be able to design and implement an adequate security profile for critical enterprise systems.
This course also can help current RHCEs in their preparation for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Security: Network Services Exam (EX333).
