Does anyone have a lesson plan concerning Linux file permissions? Just checking if anyone has one available before 're-inventing the wheel'. Adding more Linux into our A+, Network+, and Security+ curriculum to better prepare students for jobs.
1. For more targeted repetitious practice - I have students complete these tables: http://teaching.idallen.com/cst8207/13w/notes/worksheet08.pdf2. Then in order to add humor and perspective, have students create "memes" with Linux permissions. e.g.
Create a poster to illustrate Linux permissions.
The poster should include Octal, Symbolic, and the chmod command.
For those files that anyone can hack.
[With some sort of poster picture]
3. For further, higher level synthesis of the material, I recommend a creative writing assignment with Linux permissions and related tools:4.
With one partner-
1. Imagine your tech related business
2. What does this business do?
3. How many employees / IT users does this organization have?
4. Imagine that their was a data / permissions breach. What was the problem?
5. How can you fix it? [Provide at least 5 different Linux / group / user related commands and connect them to your story.]
This story should be one page in length.
6. For a more hands-on understanding of why these settings are important, I have students work through the overthewire.org Leviathan exercises. http://overthewire.org/wargames/leviathan/leviathan0.html
