Overview

Our Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course is designed for those who wish to push their knowledge. Whether you are Pen Testing, Red Teaming or trying to get a better understanding of managing vulnerabilities in your environment, understanding advanced hacking techniques is critical.

This course teaches the audience a wealth of advanced Pen Testing techniques, from the neat, to the new, to the ridiculous, to compromise modern Operating Systems, networking devices and Cloud environments. From hacking Domain Controllers to local root, to VLAN Hopping, to VoIP Hacking, to compromising Cloud account keys, we have got everything covered.

Who should attend

System Administrators, SOC Analysts, Penetration Testers, Network Engineers, security enthusiasts and anyone who wants to take their skills to next level.

While prior pen testing experience is not a strict requirement, familiarity with both Linux and Windows command line syntax will be greatly beneficial and a reasonable technical understanding of computers and networking in general is assumed. Some hands-on experience with tools commonly used by hackers, such as Nmap, NetCat, or Metasploit, will also be beneficial.

The course is ideal for those preparing for CREST CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST and other similar industry certifications, as well as those who perform Penetration Testing on infrastructure as a day job and wish to add to their existing skill set.

Target Audience

During the course, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-art Hacklab which is hosted in our data-center in the UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab, accessed using SSH. So, you don;t need to bring any VMs with you. All you need is admin access to install the VPN client and once connected, you are good to go!

Attendees may optionally come prepared with an OpenVPN client (e.g. OpenVPN Client for Windows, we suggest Tunnelblick for Mac, the OpenVPN client is often included natively for Linux but may need installing/updating) and an SSH client (e.g. PuTTY for Windows, generally included natively for Linux/Mac) installed.

Prerequisites
  • Enumerate, investigate, target and exploit weaknesses in an organisation;s network devices, online presence, and people.
  • Understand complex vulnerabilities and chained exploitation processes in order to gain access and perform restriction bypasses, privilege escalation, data exfiltration and gain long term persistence in: Web facing services, databases, Windows, Active Directory, *nix, container-based, VPN, VLAN, VoIP and Cloud environments.
  • Use compromised devices to pivot onto other private networks and/or access services protected by whitelisting or only accessible via the loopback interface.
