The Best Way to Master a Technology Is to Teach It to Others
Red Hat, Inc.
This presentation will cover securing your Linux server from several directions. We'll cover:
- The initial build of your server to exclude any code which lends itself to allowing unauthorized access;
- Disabling unnecessary services;
- Securing some common services like Sendmail, OpenSSH and Apache;
- Securing networking with iptables and hosts_access;
- Setting up secure account policies like password expiration and password complexity; and
- Scanning your systems to check for vulnerabilities.
This presentation will cover clustering with Linux from two perspectives:
- Application high availability and failover; and
- Filesystem clustering.
This session provides a demonstration of the emerging Shared Storage technology delivered by Red Hat Cluster Suite and Red Hat Global File System™ (GFS). This session will provide a demonstration of setting up highly available NFS using Red Hat Cluster Suite with a Global File System™ backend.
