Overview/Description

In this course, learners can explore Azure VM security and hardening techniques to reduce the attack surface of Azure VMs. This 21-video course can be used in preparation for the AZ-500 Microsoft Azure Security Technologies certification exam. Begin with an overview of the steps taken to harden VMs. Then learn how to use roles to limit VM admin access. Next, receive an overview of Linux secure shell (SSH) public key authentication. Learn how to generate SSH keys with PuttyGen; enable SSH public key authentication for Linux VMs; and identify how to harden HDInsights; install an antimalware VM extension. Then learn to manage VM operating systems (OS) updates, and enable VM backup. Next, learn to enable VM inventory and change tracking; enable VM replication to a secondary region; deploy a VM scale set, execute built-in VM run commands, and execute custom VM run commands. View effective VM network security group (NSG) security rules; restore an Azure VM; recognize the steps for restoring files; use the portal to view VM Inventory, and to execute a VM test fallover.
