What you'll learn

Training overview

This boot camp teaches you how to use the tools and techniques used by cybercriminals to perform an ethical hack on your organization. You’ll learn ethical hacking methodologies and gain hands-on hacking experience in our cloud-hosted cyber range, including reconnaissance, gaining access to systems, exploiting vulnerabilities and exfiltrating data.

You’ll leave with the ability to quantitatively assess and measure threats to information assets — and discover where your organization is most vulnerable to hacking. This boot camp also prepares you to earn two in-demand certifications: EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and CompTIA PenTest+.

Before your boot camp

Prerequisites

  • Firm understanding of the Windows Operating System
  • Exposure to the Linux Operating System or other Unix-based operating system
  • Grasp of the TCP/IP protocols

    Syllabus

  • Day 1
    • The first half of day one focuses on learning the job duties required of a penetration tester. You will learn the ins and outs of the various penetration testing methodologies required in order for an ethical hack to be used in a business or government setting. You will also delve deep into technical material, learning how to perform network reconnaissance against modern infrastructure.

  • Day 2
    • Having learned how to gather information about several targets, we begin day two with narrowing our attack by finding potentially vulnerable systems/services. You will master the art of network scanning and service identification, and gain a deeper understanding of how systems communicate using the TCP and UDP protocols

  • Day 3
    • After gathering information about your target system, you will put all that hard work to use when you learn how to exploit those vulnerabilities. You will learn the skills to demonstrate a successful exploit of a vulnerability as well as how to gather additional credentials to exploit vulnerabilities in other systems. You will also learn useful social engineering techniques, including phishing, and methods of attacking physical security.

  • Day 4
    • After compromising a target, you will extend your access to all vulnerable systems at your target organization and learn how to covertly exfiltrate data. The second half of day four covers attacking web-based applications and understanding SQL injection.

  • Day 5
    • Day five is dedicated toward wireless security, using basic scripts for ethical hacking, covering your tracks and post-engagement activities. You will master the ability to sniff data, clean up all traces of your activities and learn best practices for writing reports and recommending mitigation strategies.
