An intensive workshop dedicated to security mechanisms available in Linux, including the basics of circumventing those mechanisms with examples of attacker’s code hiding techniques.
This workshop is recommended for both administrators and system security testers.
Topics presented during this workshop might also be useful for Linux administrators in big institutions. The acquired knowledge will be helpful when it comes to avoiding “catching” the so-called “nasty surprises” on servers. These are not only individually aimed attacks, but also the common bugs spreading through outdated or not secured “overlooked” machines which can happen extremely easily especially in big environments.
