Mihai says: "We, as Linux users, have a wrong perspective about this OS, we think it's bulletproof by itself, although the ugly truth it's completely different. This course is one of the best ways to get to know Linux for real and its' security flaws. Congrats for the instructor, Carmen Balan, for the initiative."
Giussepe says "Clear explanation, simple but quite complete on may aspects of complex linux hardening job."
Leela says "Explained the concepts in a simplified manner."
Linux Servers provide many user transactions, which are constantly vulnerable to security threats, due to data sensitivity. To bring an application up and running on a server is an important thing, but without taking security measures, it can end up in a disaster. Although Linux is immune to some of the dangers Windows servers encounters, Internet is still a dangerous place. Therefore it's important to apply security measures to prevent malicious attacks like brute force attack, etc.
This course was designed to show some practical tips on how to protect your server, that once applied, they will increase the level of security on your system and decrease the chances of it being compromised.
Along with the video lectures, you will also find exercises to help you improve your hands-on experience. You will benefit for free from any new lectures and updates on the course.

Wow! This course has exceeded my expectations, the concepts are explained in such a way that it feels not complicated at all. Also the examples used helped me understand and train with my Linux server. If you are looking for a Linux Hardening course you should try this one!
Carmen is very knowledgeable and I like the way she explains things. This course is definitely worth the money and it is taking my Linux skills to a next level. Thank you, Carmen!!! ^_^
Carmen explains the Linux security basics well, and at a steady pace. I would like to see more exercises so we can practice, and tougher tests to confirm our knowledge and review any weaknesses
Excellent first steps to ensure that your Linux server is secure. Enjoyed the lectures and the instructor was knowledgeable and to the point.
Buna Carmen! Compania la care lucrez ar avea nevoie de skill-urile tale pe zona de IT Infrastructure. Avem nevoie de o adresa de email pentru ca fetele de HR sa te poata contacta. Multumim!
Direct and to the point. Very useful when setting up a Linux server as security is very essential. Good job!
We, as Linux users, have a wrong perspective about this OS, we think it's bulletproof by itself, although the ugly truth it's completely different. This course is one of the best ways to get to know Linux for real and its' security flaws. Congrats for the instructor, Carmen Balan, for the initiative.
I think it was nicely done. Maybe you can add something about Tripwire and some more quizzes would be nice and I always think one big Quiz at the End going trough all topics helps the learning experience. Thanks that was useful :-)
I like this course and this instructor. I learned a lot of interesting stuff, although I'm not a beginner in Linux. The course is hands-on with practical approach.
