Being able to use Ansible to secure your nodes is an in-demand skill, and understanding how to use playbooks for security is excellent knowledge to have.

This value is shown by the fact that it is one of the objectives of the Red Hat Certified Ansible Specialist exam.

In this hands-on lab, we will make use of the various modules to help secure your nodes in a reproducible manner.

This hands-on lab is not meant to be an exhaustive example of security; instead it showcases ways to enhance your nodes security.

Note: Ansible has been set up and configured for use on the Control server and two nodes. This will save you time when doing the hands-on lab.

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.
