Chapter 1. Introduction to IT Security

Abstract
To build or maintain any secure and sturdy IT (Information Technology) infrastructure, you need to be familiar with and have a working understanding of the basics pertaining to computer networking, system administration, and primary security aspects. This chapter will cover the essential concepts deemed necessary for you to gain a better understanding of security in RHEL (Red Hat Linux Enterprise) and information contained in the following chapters. As almost all administrators are acquainted with the core basics of networking and system administration, this chapter will focus more on the intermediate topics that you will probably want to learn about and might occasionally search for on the internet.

Chapter 3. Security in DevOps and Automation

Abstract
An amalgamation of the words “Development” and “Operations,” the term “DevOps” was coined by Patrick Debois in 2009. It can be defined as a harmonized blend of practices, technologies, culture, and mindset to enable automation and integration of the activities among application development and IT operations teams so as to amplify the building, testing, and deployment processes more efficiently. Once used as a generic term, now DevOps has evolved into an umbrella domain consisting of operations, tools, and culture that shrinks the application development life cycle, through quicker feedback loops that provide functionality, features, and upgrades on a consistent basis.

Chapter 7. Case Studies

Abstract
Instead of sharing plenty of light case studies with similar scenarios and remediations, three primary case studies have been handpicked, showcasing different attack vectors and appropriate resolutions. Due to confidentiality and sensitivity issues, one of the case studies is kept anonymous, but the attacks are depicted as accurately as possible.
