In this workshop you will investigate the critical tasks for a high-quality penetration test. We’ll look at the most efficient ways to map a network and discover target systems and services. Once it has been done, we will search for vulnerabilities and reduce false positives with manual vulnerability verification. At the end we will look at exploitation techniques, including the use of authored and commercial tools. In the attack summary we will always go through the securing techniques.
We really want you to leave from the class with practical, ready-to-use knowledge of how to get into the infrastructure.
Exploits are not the only way to get to systems! We will go through the operating systems’ build in problems and explore how they can be beneficial for hackers! One of the most important things to conduct a successful attack is to understand how the targets work. To the bones! Afterwards everything is clear and the tool is just a matter of our need.
The course covers all aspects of Windows infrastructure security from the hacker’s mind perspective! Our goal is to show and teach you what kind of mechanisms are allowing to get inside the infrastructure and how to get into operating systems. After the course you will gain penetration tester’s knowledge and tools. To get more practice we offer three extra weeks of labs online!
The course is an intense workshop! During this workshop we provide caffeine candies – this course is really intense and in order not to miss a thing you MUST stay awake!
All exercises are based on Windows Server 2016 and 2019, Windows 10 and Kali Linux. This course is based on practical knowledge from tons of successful projects, many years of real-world experience and no mercy for misconfigurations or insecure solutions!
To attend this training, you should have a good hands-on experience in administering Windows infrastructure. At least 8 years in the field is recommended.
Enterprise administrators, infrastructure architects, security professionals, systems engineers, network administrators, IT professionals, security consultants and other people responsible for implementing network and perimeter security.
