Advanced Unix(tm)and
Internet Security


As information systems become more and more critical in today's business environment, access to corporate networks through the Internet has become commonplace. While the Internet is becoming an essential part of your infrastructure, it also makes it possible to probe or attack your networks from anywhere in the world. Your network is at risk both from casual hackers and from experts hired by your competitors. Over 90 percent of security problems can be solved with attention to good user and administrative practices. This three-day program provides the basis for practical Unix System and Internet Security.

About This Program

Two key approaches:

  1. To "harden" the security of computers which provide network services.
  2. To understand TCP/IP and establish effective access to your networks.

Part one focuses on building networks which include Unix workstations and/or servers with connectivity to the Internet, or other possibly hostile TCP/IP-based networks.

Part two focuses on the first line of defense--a firewall between the protected network and potentially hostile ones. Firewalls consist of different components (routers, gateways, bastion hosts, mail servers, and proxy servers), which work together to provide a safe connection to a hostile network.

You will learn to:

System & network administrators & managers, system integrators, IT auditors & managers, computer programmers, security administrators and individuals involved in providing Internet service and securing network gateways.
