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

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...
