Creating Customized Security Policy Content to Automate Security Compliance

This lab will introduce you to the ComplianceAsCode project, the ultimate tool that creates content for automated security tools.  ComplianceAsCode enables automated evaluation and fast and efficient remediations against security controls for compliance with regulatory or custom profiles and for automated configuration compliance. It allows you to produce a tailor-made security policy for your company with minimal effort, and the OpenSCAP ecosystem can do the scanning and support for problem resolution.

Implementing Proactive Security and Compliance Automation and DevSecOps

In this hands-on lab, you’ll learn how to implement security and compliance automation at scale for the infrastructure, operations, and application across a hybrid environment, in a controlled way, using a combination of various Red Hat products and technologies. You will experience how to create and enforce control policies in an automated way, perform automated security scans and remediations for various different security profiles and security controls, do proactive security and automated risk management, implement automated web application hardening, and more.

Defend Yourself Using Built-in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Security Technologies

In this lab, you’ll learn how you can build defense-in-depth in the OS by implementing the key security technologies available to you in the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. You will implement security compliance with OpenSCAP, Audit, AIDE, session recording, and system wide crypto policies; physical security with USBGuard; network security with firewalld, SELinux port security, and IPSec; access management with Ansible system roles, Identity Management, and SELinux process isolation; and data security with Linux Unified Key Setup(LUKS), Network Bound Disk Encryption, and GNU Privacy Guard.
