Pros 27-hours hands-on course
Most operating systems are insecure by default. Solaris is no exception. As a prudent security professional, you need to bastionize the system before loading any critical applications or sensitive data on it, and validate that level of protection periodically.
In this 27-hour hands-on course, i-Total will examine the security features of the Solaris operating system, build a Solaris bastion host from the ground up, setup centralized logging facilities, establish secure network and remote accesses, and audit the effectiveness of system security. Upon completion of the course, you may also want to take the Prometric exam 310-301 and become a Sun Certified Security Administrator.
