Red Hat Server Hardening – RH413 teaches students how to secure a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system to comply with security policy requirements.

Course overview

Many security policies and standards require systems administrators to address specific user authentication concerns, application of updates, system auditing and logging, file system integrity, and more. Red Hat Server Hardening – RH413 provides strategies for addressing specific policy and configuration concerns.

This training will prepare you for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Server Hardening exam – EX413. After passing EX413 you will become Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Server Hardening. This certification is part of the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path and EX413 can be recognized as one of the five required exams.
