Working with source control in your own public or private GitHub repository will be a common occurrence for most system administrators. Through the use of standard SSH tools, the student will learn how to generate a special SSH key that can be used to secure access to a private repository. At the end of this learning activity, the student will know how to generate, add, and use this SSH key to secure their access to private repositories.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
