Course Description
  • The UNIX family of operating systems is prized by
    developers and other IT professionals for their
    flexibility and openness. Vulnerabilities in
    standard configurations, however, can make UNIX
    systems susceptible to security threats. For the
    many organizations that depend upon UNIX systems,
    protection against intrusion is an absolute
    requirement. This course provides the knowledge
    and skills you need to establish security for the
    Linux platform. It will present in-depth
    explanations of operating system security
    features as well as step-by-step configuration
    guides for proper operating system configuration.
    This course also will cover the knowledge and
    skills students will need to maintain the
    integrity, authenticity, availability and privacy
    of data.

Student Learning Outcomes and Course Objectives
  • As a result of completing this course, you will
    be able to
  • Define networking security fundamentals in terms
    of the Linux operating system.
  • Demonstrate how to make data secure using a Linux
    operating system
  • Identify the tools to configure client services.
  • Configure simple network services.
  • Configure file sharing services.
  • Examine the relationships between major network
  • Understand security, ethics, and privacy issues.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of user and file security.

Student Obligations
  • It is important that you understand what is
    expected of you in this course.
  • Refer to the syllabus if you have any questions.

  • Since this course is an online-hybrid class,
    attending the on-campus orientation on October
    21, 2009 and taking the on-campus final exam on
    December 16, 2009 are required. There will be
    weekly lab time on campus, and it is up to you to
    complete the lab assignments during the lab time
    or at home.
  • Doing the labs themselves is not optional, but
    doing them at the college is.
  • I will be giving credit for students attending
    the lab on campus.
  • Typically each week we will be covering 1-2
    chapters in your textbook.
  • Attendance for the on-campus final exam is
    required. Photo identification is required at
    the time of the exam to verify your identity.

  • Each week there will be a quiz that will test you
    on the material covered.
  • It is open book and open notes.
  • You can take the quiz multiple times to improve
    your score, but be aware that the questions may
    change each time you take quiz and that your last
    quiz score will be the one counted as your grade.
  • Each quiz is worth 30 points.

  • I want everyone to take a pro-active approach to
    learning this material. This includes using the
    discussion area of d2l to ask questions and also
    answer other students questions. I will be
    posting questions to further your understanding
    of the material.
  • I expect each student to post at least two times
    per discussion item.
  • You can accomplish this task by asking questions
    about the current discussion topic or by
    responding to existing questions.
  • My expectation from you is that you will write at
    least two- to three-sentence responses that add
    substance to the discussion.
  • Each discussion item is worth 20 points.

  • We will be spending a lot of time working on lab
    activities. Each lab assignment has review
    questions that you will need to answer in d2l in
    order for you to receive points for that
  • You are responsible for making sure that your
    instructor receives your lab review.
  • Each lab assignment is worth 50 points.

Final Exam
  • The final exam will consist of two parts. One
    part will be a hands-on practical demonstration
    of assigned tasks and the other part will be an
    exam taken in d2l.
  • The final exam will be on Wednesday, December 16,
  • I will be having a review session the week before
    to help you.

Due Dates
  • Unless noted, all assignments will be submitted
    in d2l under the Dropbox link.
  • If, for any reason, you cannot access d2l or are
    unable to submit the assignment on time, please
    email it to me instead so that you are not
    penalized for being late.
  • Quizzes and the discussion items cannot be taken
    past their due date.
  • If you miss a quiz and you want to make up
    points, you can take advantage of the extra
    credit assignments posted in d2l.
  • Everyone is welcome to work on the extra credit
    assignments. Typically, they are five to ten
    points each, depending on the difficulty of the

Late Work
  • Unless noted all assignments are due on Monday by
    midnight each week.
  • I have identified the due dates in the course
  • Late work will be accepted ONLY if you have
    contacted me prior to the due date either by
    email or voice mail.
  • In general, late work is due the next week, and
    no late assignments may be turned in after one
    week from the original due date regardless of the
  • For every day an assignment is late, you will
    lose 10 of its grade.

Plagiarism Policy/Cheating
  • Plagiarism
  • It is inappropriate, and a violation of academic
    policy, to copy information from any source
    (including, but not limited to, textbooks,
    magazine articles, newspaper articles and
    internet articles) without giving proper credit
    to the author by using standard quotation
    procedures such as in-line quotes, footnotes,
    endnotes, etc. Quotes may not exceed 25 of the
    assignments total length.
  • You will receive no credit (0 points) for any
    assignment that copies any material from any
    other source without giving proper credit to the
    author(s). Repeated offenders of this policy are
    subject to academic discipline as outlined in the
    polices published by the college.
  • Cheating
  • Students who cheat will receive a failing grade
    for the course. (See CRC 2009-2010 College
    Catalog, p. 34.)

  • Students are responsible for dropping the course.

Email/Discussion Etiquette
  • Every student will be required to have an email
    account. A free email account is provided to all
    CRC students (iMail). To activate it, click on
    the iMail link on the college home page and
    follow the instructions provided.
  • I will not tolerate rude and demeaning comments
    or emails to anyone in this class. Please keep
    your comments and emails topic-related.
  • If I determine that a comment or email to anyone
    else in the class is rude or demeaning, I will
    warn you once. If your behavior continues to be
    unacceptable, I will refer you to the
    administration of the college for disciplinary

Personal Belongings
  • No food or drinks are allowed in the classroom.
  • All cell phones, beepers, and pagers, etc. should
    be turned off or set to vibrate.
  • Any telephone calls need to be taken outside.

  • If you have a documented disability and wish to
    discuss academic accommodations, please contact
    me after class or contact the Office of Disable
    Student Programs and Services at 691-7275 as soon
    as possible.

Campus Police
  • You can call 691-7777 to request a safety escort.

Online Course Responsibilities
  • This course requires significant self-motivation.
    You must not get behind. Labs and weekly
    assignments can take up to eight hours to finish.
    Please dont try to finish them in one day. Not
    all activities are created equal. Some may take
    a bit longer than others.
  • You would normally spend 3 hours per week in
    class for this course total of 54 hours. Allow
    yourself at least 8 hours per week to complete
    the activities online, including the time spent
    writing for the postings to the class discussion
    area. You should plan additional time to read
    the textbook and study for the quizzes.
  • Some people believe this is a much easier way to
    study this subject than an on-campus framework
    because they love to read and avoid the parking
    problems. Others feel very intimidated at first.
    Be patient as you work your way through the
