Course Overview
This course provides learners with a basic level of competency using a hands-on approach to gaining practical experience as a penetration tester or an ethical hacker (white, grey or black).
This course provides a fundamental look at offensive security concepts and techniques using a virtual install of Kali Linux and three different target victims, Windows XP, Server 2008 and Linux (Metesploitable2). This course provides a 100% hands-on on approach to learning to be an ethical hacker or a pentester.

How is the course structured?
The course uses short video tutorials, hands-on labs, virtualization, and open source tools for step-by-step learning of ethical hacking fundamentals; the same tools and open source software are used by professional penetration testers and ethical hackers.

This course provides videos, labs, and links for downloading the free and open source software used throughout this course.
You will able to build a virtual install of Kali Linux and Windows XP for the virtual lab environment.

You should complete the first lab of this course before enrolling.
Starting with lab 2, we will begin scanning and attacking a Windows XP victim. If the first lab cannot be completed, there is no need to enroll in the course since all labs that follow are dependent on the first lab being completed.

You will learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to stop them, the importance of a strong firewall, the importance of keeping systems and software updated and the use of complex passwords.

You will also learn how to launch DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows, keylogging, and password hacking.

Completion of the course will help prepare an individual for an entry-level position as a pen-tester or ethical hacker. On completing this course, you will receive a course completion.

If you would like to discuss ethical hacking, watch someone else talk about technology or write a paper, there are plenty of other courses to choose from. To successfully complete this course students must demonstrate the fundamental concepts of offensive hacking. In other words, learners will learn something by doing.

Course Objectives

  1. Demonstrate the use of offensive security tools and techniques.
  2. Proficiency in the use of the CLI (Command Line Interface) of Linux.
  3. Use Linux as a hacking platform.
