Red Hat Security Securing Containers and OpenShift

4 days


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.


This course is designed for professionals responsible for designing, implementing, maintaining, and managing the security of containerized applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems and in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform installations, including these roles:

  • System administrators
  • IT security administrators
  • IT security engineers
  • DevOps engineers
  • Cloud developers
  • Cloud architects

Describe host security technologies Understand the core technologies that make Red Hat Enterprise Linux a robust and trusted container host.

Establish trusted container images Describe the registries, services, and methods that comprise the Red Hat image ecosystem.

Implement security in the build process Learn automated methods for integrating security checks into build and deployment pipelines.

Manage user access control Apply methods for integrating and managing user authentication for operators and for web applications.

Control the deployment environment Determine how a container platform secures the deployment process through policies and automation.

Manage secure platform orchestration Study how a container platform secures the orchestration process through policies and infrastructure.

Provide secure network I/O Discover the technologies and control features that enable multitenancy and project isolation.
