Re: [OCLUG-Tech] Local SELINUX Training

Hi Kelwin,
Maybe you could do a 30 min presentation at OCLUG.
I, for one, know just enough to disable SElinux. :-)

Red Hat has a 4 day SELinux course:  RHS429 Red Hat Enterprise SELinux
Policy Administration.

A description of the course is available at:

An outline of the course is available at:

There is a certification exam associated with this course if you are
interested in that kind of thing.

This course is not currently scheduled anywhere in Canada, but if you
have enough people interested in taking it, you can work with Red Hat to
arrange an onsite course or a course at the site of one of their
training partners (the one in Ottawa is ctc TrainCanada).

In the interests of full disclosure:
- I am NOT an employee of Red Hat, but
- I am a Red Hat instructor and
- I do contract work teaching the Red Hat courses leading to the RHCE.
- I do NOT teach the SELinux course nor have I taken it (although I
would like to!).
