UNIX Audit and Security
Duration: 5 Days
Having acquired a high level understanding of UNIX, you will learn how to assess security hands on. All aspects are covered, both business and technical. Planning for audits and discussion of suitable tests forms a substantial part of the course. Delegates will get a chance to run audit and security related commands.
Though the course is designed specifically for a SUN Solaris installation, it will serve as a good general overview for any flavour of UNIX.

Who Should Take This Course
The course is intended for those who need to find out what UNIX is and where the different components are located, with a specific security objective in mind. In conjunction with an explanation of the technology, the prime risks and defences will be pointed out. Delegates who will benefit most from this course are typically computer auditors, security specialists and security conscious managers. The course also serves as a useful general introduction to UNIX.
Delegates should have had some experience of using UNIX beforehand and be able to enter simple shell commands, such as ls and more, in a terminal environment. Shell programming and C programming experience would be an advantage.
This course is instructor led, with strong emphasis on hands-on practical sessions to reinforce the concepts introduced in the classroom.
