The Professionally Evil Network Test (PENT) class is a hands-on course that teaches attendees a robust methodology for network penetration testing and an introduction to the tools and processes used to test networks. Students will walk through the phases of Reconnaissance, Mapping, Discovery, Exploitation, and Post-Exploitation with demonstrations of various tools and tactics used in each phase. The course is heavily focused on hands-on labs so that attendees have the opportunity to actually use common tools and techniques. By the end of the 2-day training, students will understand the structure of a penetration test and have the experience necessary to begin practicing the demonstrated toolsets.
The following serves as a tenative agenda for this class. The class is regularly updated to incorporate the latest information on network penetration testing.
Students are expected to have some prior knowledge of network principles (i.e. be familiar with network troubleshooting, TCP/IP protocols, etc), and some general IT experience. Familiarity with command line interfaces and a basic understanding of security concept is also useful. This is not an advanced security class, however students with little IT experience may struggle to keep up.
To perform lab exercises, this class requires the use of a laptop with:
