You will learn and validate your skills in 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.

Skills Gained

As a result of taking this course and exam, 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:

  • Use recommend practices to ensure that images for container deployment come from trusted sources, including the use of secure registries, signed images, secure access protocols, and authorized access controls.
  • Explain and implement advanced SELinux techniques to restrict access by users, processes, and virtual machines.
  • Configure security context constraints to control the actions that pods can perform and to declare what a pod has the ability to access.
  • Implement the Linux computer security (seccomp) and Linux capabilities features to control the vulnerability footprint of a containerized application.
  • Implement and configure single sign-on for web applications, including the use of JWT for token sharing.
  • Explain and implement network isolation and encryption techniques to segregate application traffic to allow only authorized access.
  • Implement and explain storage management techniques to segregate volume storage I/O to allow only authorized access.
  • Observe and explain how the build process can be extended to include automated security testing and vulnerability scanning to ensure that no exploits are introduced into the final container images to be deployed.
  • Manage container deployment policies and configuration to control application placement, resource capacity, container affinity, and application demand scaling.
  • Manage OpenShift project access and quotas to ensure private and authorized self-service access, as well as to limit exposure to rogue tokens and denial-of-service attempts.

What does vendor-authorized training mean?

As a vendor-authorized training partner, we offer a curriculum that our partners have vetted. We use the same course materials and facilitate the same labs as our vendor-delivered training. These courses are considered the gold standard and, as such, are priced accordingly.

Is the training too basic, or will you go deep into technology?

It depends on your requirements, your role in your company, and your depth of knowledge. The good news about many of our learning paths, you can start from the fundamentals to highly specialized training.

How up-to-date are your courses and support materials?

We continuously work with our vendors to evaluate and refresh course material to reflect the latest training courses and best practices.

Are your instructors seasoned trainers who have deep knowledge of the training topic?

ExitCertified instructors have an average of 27 years of practical IT experience. They have also served as consultants for an average of 15 years. To stay up to date, instructors will at least spend 25 percent of their time learning new emerging technologies and courses.

Do you provide hands-on training and exercises in an actual lab environment?

Lab access is dependent on the vendor and the type of training you sign up for. However, many of our top vendors will provide lab access to students to test and practice. The course description will specify lab access.

Will you customize the training for our company’s specific needs and goals?

We will work with you to identify training needs and areas of growth.  We offer a variety of training methods, such as private group training, on-site of your choice, and virtually. We provide courses and certifications that are aligned with your business goals.

How do I get started with certification?

Getting started on a certification pathway depends on your goals and the vendor you choose to get certified in. Many vendors offer entry-level IT certification to advanced IT certification that can boost your career. To get access to certification vouchers and discounts, please contact Edu_customerexperience@techdata.com

Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

Class was easy to sign up for and ExitCertified provided very good communication

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes
