Depends on whats your current status and in which Linux / Unix OS you are looking for.

For redhat
If you are already RHCE certified you can go for RHCSS else RHCE will be the first target.

For SUSE
refer: http://ocw.novell.com/suse-linux-enterprise-server-engineers/suse-linux-security

For HPUX

Start with the Linux+ and Security+ then move through the different courses (LPIC-2, LPIC-3, etc.)

Also, be sure to get the specific certifications for the distro you will be using.

Hi,

No certifications are required. You can try some IT audit certification.

If you want to be a security analyst/engineer you should also have some security certifications.  SANS has some good ones, as well as ISC2 and CompTIA's Security+.

Probably your university degree contains most of what certificates require. Or maybe not...
