I finished my Post graduation in Computer science and Information Security.I would like to build up my career in IT Security field.As a fresher noob, I'm just planning to join RHCE course in coming days. Does it helps to move in slowly by gaining some practical knowledge?
or should I think of C|EH or something?

Thanks in advance.

    CEH has an experience requirement. Linux is a good skill to have, as well as any sysadmin/netadmin skills. It may be helpful to develop some of these skills as you begin working in IT security.

    Thanks bro for the reply,
    as you said I'm planning to get a start.But I want to know how much is the possibility for jumping to IT security from Sysadmin field (later on).

    I believe most people here will recommend Security+ to start. It's entry-level yet broad enough to cover many of the important infosec areas to give you a basis to build on & determine where you next want to focus deeper on (hint - most people choose penetration testing aka "hacking" - although your path my better lie elsewhere)

    Thanks for reply '636-555-3226'; As I have a degree on InfoSec, hope I have some basics. As you said, Pen-testing, Security analyst is my first option. But now I'm joining RHCE and I have set my ultimate target to reach the IT Security field.
