Intro Text

This two-hour online workshop serves as the second part in an introductory series of 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 101 serves as the initial starting point for navigating the Linux operating system.

Topics covered include the following:

  • 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 CYBER.ORG. 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.

Pre-requisites: If you do not already have a U.S. Cyber Range account, please plan to attend a 30-minute "set-up" session on either October 1st at 8 pm Central or sometime between 11 am and 2 pm Central on October 2nd.

You should also be familiar with, or have previously taken, Linux 101 (offered on October 6).
