    Red Hat Certified Security Specialist: A New Hat for Linux Professionals

    Red Hat has long attracted industry notice through its use of live system, performance-based testing in its Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT) and Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification programs. Now, Red Hat is adding a first-of-its-kind performance-based security certification to its fold: the Red Hat Certified Security Specialist (RHCSS). Networked systems provide a gateway to useful information and applications, but also invite an unfriendly world through that gateway. For this reason, security capabilities have always been integral to Red Hat’s operating system products and thus to Red Hat’s curriculum and certification exams. RHCT tests just the core system administrative skills, although security-related skills such as setting passwords and attaching to an external directory for authentication are also required. RHCE requires candidates to implement multiple security requirements on their systems. A candidate who cannot implement these requirements will not earn RHCE. Security is not optional in the real world, and should not be optional in a system administration certification exam with a networking services focus.
