Red Hat Security: Securing Containers and OpenShift (DO425) is designed to help infrastructure administrators and security professionals learn to identity and mitigate threats to OpenShift container-based infrastructure. The curriculum also covers how to implement and manage secure architecture, policies, and procedures for modern containerized applications and software-defined networking.
This course is based on Red Hat®Enterprise Linux® 7.5, Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform 3.11, and Red Hat® Identity Manager 7.5.
You will learn about using secure and trusted container images, registries, and source code; managing network and storage isolation; implementing application single sign-on; and configuring appropriate security constraints and service role–based access control. You will also find out how existing core Linux technologies—such as namespaces, cgroups, seccomp, capabilities, and SELinux—provide a robust and mature host environment with strongly secure containers.Course content summary
This course is designed for professionals responsible for designing, implementing, maintaining, and managing the security of containerized applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems and in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform installations, including these roles:
Containers and container orchestration platforms, such as OpenShift and Kubernetes, have become pervasive in enterprise computing. Container environments have introduced new attack vectors, exploits, and vulnerabilities. Enterprises require strong security, and the migration to containerized microservices has upended traditional network-based security models. Developers must prove that their code, images, and deployments are trusted and secure.
This course is intended to develop the skills needed to maintain a high level of security in the evolving world of containerized applications and OpenShift installations. OpenShift is an enterprise-grade, container-based application platform that provides the mature security of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and additional mechanisms of security assurance for service role access control, build process hardening, source image layered trust, and controlled deployment management. These security features may help your organization efficiently reduce risk of security breaches, which have a high cost in business disruption, brand erosion, loss of customer and shareholder trust, and financial costs for post-incident remediation. In addition, your organization may be able to use the tools in this course to help demonstrate that compliance requirements set by customers, auditors, or other stakeholders have been met.Impact on the individual
As a result of attending this course, you should be able to use security technologies included in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Linux to manage security risk and help meet compliance requirements. You should be able to demonstrate these skills:
