Intro Text

This 90-minute online workshop serves as the second part in an introductory series to the Linux command line for educators preparing to teach Cybersecurity. Linux is the most widely utilized operating system in the cybersecurity world. The free, open-source nature of this operating system ensures security experts a stable platform to work from.

Linux 102 will include the following commands:

  • pr, less, more, head, tail
  • file redirection (< , >, |), tee
  • wc
  • find
  • grep
  • chmod / chown
  • sudo/su
  • df/du
  • tree

This workshop will be led by subject matter experts from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC). A Zoom link will be emailed before the webinar begins.

Participants will receive access to online curriculum materials as well as a temporary log-in to the U.S. Cyber Range. Due to grant funding restrictions, this workshop is only open to K-12 educators in the U.S.

This is built as the first of 4 sequential courses that build confidence and competency in the Linux command line. Participants are expected to be familiar with, or have previously taken, Linux 101. An identical course will be offered on July 16.
