Master Linux administration using the secure shell

Unleash the power of the secure shell in Linux administration and network security

Whether you are a UNIX/Linux administrator, a casual user, a macOS owner, or even a Microsoft Windows user, you’ve probably used SSH (secure shell) in some way or another. This course is going to uncover some of the less-known features of SSH. Yes, it will teach SSH for the total beginner, but it will also show SSH veterans some tips and tricks that perhaps they don’t know they ever existed.

What you’ll learn

  • Use client and server configuration files to cutomize SSH to your very needs.
  • Securely trasnfer files and directories over the network using the secure shell.
  • Enhance authentication security by enforcing public/private key authentication.
  • Run GUI applications over the network through SSH X11 forwarding.
  • Bypass local and remote firewalls using SSH tunnels.
  • Create your own SOCKS5 proxy using only SSH.

I tried to make this class as modular as possible. This means that you could skip lectures whose topics you already know, and watch only what want to gain knowledge about. You can view the lectures in any order you want because they are largely non-dependent on each other.
