Course Description

Today's IT security ecosystem requires strong file system security. This is achieved not only through a robust file system permissions implementation but also controlled network access. Learn how to handle file system security in this mostly hands-on course.

First, get a theoretical overview of how file system security works in Windows and Linux environments. Then, practice configuring permissions for network shared folders and setting NTFS file and folder permissions.

Next, use the Windows built-in Encrypting File System (EFS) option to encrypt files and folders. Enable disk volume encryption using Microsoft BitLocker. Encrypt files using OpenSSL. Configure Linux file system permissions. And work with file hashing in Windows and Linux.

Upon course completion, you'll be able to implement and manage Windows and Linux file system permissions, encryption, and file system hashes. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
