I have a question about the episodes and their labs (Linux+ course), Is there any way I can know the labs related to a specific episode?
Episodes and their labs.
We filmed that course prior to the labs being available, so they don't match up by name and in some cases don't match up at all. If I had to map labs to episodes, it would look something like this:
* Performing Basic Linux Tasks + Overview + Introduction to Linux - Lab #58: Access the Linux System + Linux Command Line - Lab #5: Working with Relative and Absolute Paths - Lab #20: Using Shell Input and Output Redirections * Managing Users and Groups + Super User Privileges - Lab #14: Run User Level Queries + Managing Users + Managing Groups - Lab #13: Managing User and Group Accounts and Related System Files * Managing Permissions and Ownership + Managing File Permissions - Lab #36: Manage File Permissions and Ownership - Lab #57: Manage File and Directory Permissions + Advanced Permissions - Lab #38: Working with Access Control List - Lab #59: Configure Inheritance and Group Memberships * Managing Storage + Partitioning Disks - Lab #3: Using Various Disk Management Tools - Lab #8: View the Hard Drive Details + Linux File System - Lab #2: Create Partitions and Filesystems - Lab #7: Control Mounting and Unmounting of Filesystems - Lab #9: Check and Repair Filesystems - Lab #40: Maintain the Integrity of Filesystems + Logical Volume Manager (LVM) + Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) - Lab #1: Design Hard Disk Layout - Lab #24: Find System Files and Place Files in the Correct Location - Lab #15: Managing Disk Quotas * Managing Files and Directories + Editing Files with vi - Lab #18: Perform Basic File Editing Operations Using vi + Working with Files - Lab #22: Performing Basic File Management - Lab #49: Compress Data Using Various Tools and Utilities + Locating Files - Lab #23: Amending Hard and Symbolic Links + Searching with grep - Lab #19: Search Text Files using Regular Expressions + Manipulating Text - Lab #50: Process Text Streams using Filters - Lab #52: Use Streams Pipes and Redirects * Managing Kernel Modules + Managing Kernal Modules * Managing the Linux Boot Process + Managing the Linux Boot Process - Lab #4: Working with Kernel, Boot Modules, and Files * Managing System Components + Graphical User Interfaces + Managing Services with Systemd + Managing Services with SysVinit - Lab #27: Change Runlevels and Shutdown or Reboot System + Troubleshooting Services - Lab #25: Use Systemctl and update-rc.d Utility to Manage Services - Lab #33: Create, Monitor and Kill Processes - Lab #53: Perform CPU Monitoring and Configuration - Lab #54: Perform Memory Monitoring and Configuration - Lab #55: Perform Process Monitoring - Lab #56: Modify Process Execution Priorities * Managing Devices + Configuring Hardware + Supporting Printers - Lab #34: Manage Printers and Printing * Managing Networking + Understanding TCPIP + Configure Networking - Lab #26: Configuring Host Names - Lab #28: Maintain System Time - Lab #29: Configure Client Side DNS + Troubleshooting Network Connections - Lab #51: Basic Network Troubleshooting * Managing Packages and Software + Managing Software with Apt - Lab #11: Using Debian Package Management + Managing Software with Yum/DNF - Lab #10: Using RPM and YUM Package Management - Lab #60: Patch the System - Lab #12: Using Repositories + Building from Source * Securing Linux Systems + Linux Security Best Practices - Lab #17: Setup Host Security - Lab #30: Configure System Logging - Lab #42: Secure Communication using SSH - Lab #37: Perform Security Administration Tasks - Lab #41: Work with Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) - Lab #43: Securing Data with Encryption - Lab #45: Set up SFTP to Chroot Jail only for Specific Group - Lab #46: Secure a Linux Terminal and Implement Logging Services - Lab #48: Configure UFW and DenyHosts + Securing Apps with SELinux - Lab #39: Configure SELinux + Securing Apps with AppArmor + Filtering Traffic with Firewalld + Filtering Traffic with iptables + Backup and Restore Data * Working with Bash Scripts + Configuring Bash - Lab #16: Working with Bash Profiles and Bash Scripts + Writing a Bash Script - Lab #61: Working with the Environment Variables - Lab #62: Shells, Scripting and Data Management - Lab #63: Customize or Write Simple Scripts - Lab #6: Work with the Flow Control Constructs * Automating Tasks + Scheduling Tasks - Lab #32: Automate System Administration Tasks by Scheduling Jobs + Version Control with Git * Installing Linux + Installing CentOS + Installing Ubuntu
That leaves out a couple of labs that just don't quite match up with our episodes. Here are the left-overs:
* Lab #21: Install and Configure a Web Server * Lab #31: Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) Basics * Lab #35: Accessibility * Lab #44: Work with TTY * Lab #47: Boot the System
Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Thank you so much for your response. I'm going to follow your suggestion. Please put this list on the course's main page so others can use it.
On the other hand, I take the opportunity to ask you about this certification. I have a background in networking, working as a Network Manager with an +2k node network and several branch offices in the Dominican Republic, and I moved to Raleigh, NC almost three years ago. I came here, and I switched to the cybersecurity field. I got the CySA+ cert two months ago, and now I'm working with Linux+ cert. Do you think Linux+ cert will be beneficial for me?
Absolutely. More and more applications are being converted into web based applications. The new standard deployment model is to use Linux based containers in the dev environment and then deploy on Linux based systems in the cloud. That means most infrastructure is being run on Linux these days. From a cyber-security perspective that means you will be scanning, testing and hardening Linux servers on a regular basis. The topics in Linux+ help you to establish a moderate level of proficiency with maintaining and configuring Linux.
Hope that helps,
Great. Your opinion is gold to me. Let's go back to the course :)
Thank you for your time helping me.
God bless you,
