About the course

This package includes access to all CYRIN Secure System Setup category labs for a period of one year. Access includes CYRIN's existing catalog of Secure System Setup lab courses as well as newly-created Secure System Setup labs during the access period.

Defense-in-depth requires individual network hosts to be set up securely, whether they be individual workstations, server systems, or cloud computing nodes.

The labs in this category help you configure common operating systems securely, as well as how to configure and deploy host-based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS's) and other security tools.

The labs in this category assume general knowledge of TCP/IP networking as well as Unix/Linux and Microsoft Windows configuration principles.
