Elite Penetration Testing Tactics, Techniques, and Skills.
The Advanced Hacker Methodologies for Security Professionals course demonstrates how to defend large scale network infrastructure by learning how attackers leverage weaknesses in networks and systems to gain unauthorized access, cause damage, and steal information. From performing in-depth Open Source INTelligence (OSINT) to using advanced features of exploitation frameworks, students will experience first-hand the excitement of deciphering some of the most closely held secrets of expert penetration testers.
Day 5 – Student Practical Exercise
The practical exercise is a team based Capture The Flag (CTF) event. Students will work in teams to perform a thorough penetration test of a simulated corporation. Specific informational objectives are defined for each step of the process. These objectives are in the form of "flags". Teams will gather all flags with as few hints as possible within the time allotted. Multiple hints will be given for each flag to the point of walking the student through the process required for success. The scoreboard will be displayed throughout to help motivate students to attempt to obtain flags with the least number of hints.
