I've been trying to find information about any good UNIX Security Tools
courses that might be offered by any vendors, educational institutes or
private training organizations (other than the upcoming SANS conference
Specifically, I'm looking for any courses that might cover how (and more
importantly _when_) to use tools in some of the following categories:
Static analysis (e.g., COPS, tiger, tripwire)
Log monitoring (e.g., logsurf, swatch)
Network analysis (e.g., tcp_wrapper, SATAN, nfsbug)
Privilege (e.g., sudo, smrsh)
Authentication (e.g., npasswd, S/Key, SSH)
I know there are plenty of papers, books, ReadMEs, etc. on security,
and am certainly using those resources. Moreover, I realize that good
security involves more than just running a bunch of tools and scripts.
However, I was hoping to find a really good course that I could
recommend my employer send other system administrators to.
I work mainly with HP-UX 9000 and Sun Solaris Enterprise servers.
Any information you can share would be appreciated. Please reply by
Thanks in advance.
