After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Illustrate the necessity of planning as part of the system hardening process.
  • Explain the rationale behind a hardening standard for systems such as physical devices & connections, network devices, Windows and Unix/Linux server operating systems, and cross-platform applications.
  • Implement a security standard for systems such as physical devices & connections, network devices, Windows and Unix/Linux server operating systems, and cross-platform applications.
  • Verify and evaluate the results of the system hardening process.
