about this item
This detailed book walks steadily through challenging scenarios so that the reader may increase their knowledge of a number of diverse security areas which a technical professional faces.
The reader is already familiar with Linux as a bedrock of stability but sometimes frustrated with certain software packages and the way that they integrate with the Operating System and indeed other packages. Looking closely at a considered selection of security topics empowers the reader to continue their learning and make full use of Linux’s rocksteady foundation.
In addition to each of the varied subjects covered such as sophisticated attacks, penetration testing, launching attacks and making a server invisible the book is brimming with invaluable insights gleaned from hard-won, professional experience.
Applicable to almost all of the popular Linux flavours, such as Debian, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and CentOS, Linux Server Security can also be used to reference other Unix-type systems with little modification.
The reader will improve their practical knowhow and background knowledge in order to increase their ability to troubleshoot and ultimately solve the daily security challenges encountered by Sysadmins and DevOps engineers. Whether the aim is to further a career or bring more enjoyment to a hobby the powerful, newfound knowledge gleaned from this book will help the reader add to their technical arsenal.
