Certified Penetration Testing Consultant
The vendor-neutral Certified Penetration Testing Consultant course is designed for IT Security Professionals and IT Network Administrators who are interested in taking an in-depth look into specific Penetration tests and techniques against operating systems. This course will teach you the necessary skills to work as a penetration testing team, the exploitation process, how to create a buffer overflow against programs running on Windows and Linux while subverting features such as DEP and ASLR. This course will guide you through the OWASP Top 10, teach you how to create shellcode to gain remote code execution, as well as, teach you to build and understand different proof of concept code based on exploits pulled from exploit-db and testing using a debugger. The course starts by explaining how to build the right penetration testing team, covers scanning with NMAP, leading into the exploitation process, a little fuzzing with spike to help guide our proof of concept code, writing buffer overflows, understanding OWASP, Linux stack smashing, Windows exploit protection and getting around those protection methods, a section on report writing, and capping off the course with a scenario that will test your skills as a penetration testing team.
