    Server Hardening Exam (RH143)

    About the RedHat Server Hardening certification

    The Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Server Hardening exam (EX413) tests candidates’ knowledge, skills, and abilities to apply standards-based best practices to secure Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems against unauthorized access.

    Red Hat® Enterprise Performance Tuning is designed to teach senior Linux® system administrators the methodology of performance tuning for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.


      • Identify Red Hat Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) and Red Hat Security Advisories (RHSAs) and selectively update systems based on this information
      • Verify package security and validity.
      • The hands-on nature of this exam makes real-world experience a critical facet of preparation.
      • Identify and employ standards-based practices for configuring file system security, create and use encrypted file systems, tune file system features, and use specific mount options to restrict access to file system volumes.
      • Configure default permissions for users and use special file permissions, attributes, and access control lists (ACLs) to control access to files.
      • Install and use intrusion detection capabilities in Red Hat Enterprise Linux to monitor critical system files
      • Manage user account security and user password security
      • Manage system login security using pluggable authentication modules (PAM)
      • Configure console security by disabling features that allow systems to be rebooted or powered off using bootloader passwords
      • Configure system-wide acceptable use notifications
      • Install, configure, and manage identity management services and configure identity management clients
      • Configure remote system logging services, configure system logging, and manage system log files using mechanisms such as log rotation and compression
      • Configure system auditing services and review audit reports
      • Use network scanning tools to identify open network service ports and configure and troubleshoot system firewalling
