RH423 trains senior system administrators to manage and deploy directory services on and for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Gaining an understanding of the basic concepts, configuration, and management of LDAP—based services is central to this course. Students will integrate standard network clients and services with the directory service in order to take advantage of its capabilities. We will also look at PAM, the Pluggable Authentication Modules system, and how it is integrated with services that require authentication and authorization.
