Hosted Penetration Testing Labs by Offensive Security
Offensive Security is proud to introduce the Offensive Security Penetration Testing Labs, a safe virtual network environment designed to be attacked and penetrated as a means of learning and sharpening your penetration testing skills. We fondly refer to this network environment as the “playground”. The “playground” was created using our years of experience running the Offensive Security Training Labs, as well as a large number of penetration tests we have conducted over the years. This allows us to mirror interesting scenarios and introduce them into the labs. The virtual network is ripe with both known and unknown vulnerabilities, each designed to deliver a specific educational experience to attacking participants.
Modern and Challenging Network Designs
The vulnerable networks are rich in varying Operating Systems and attack vectors, allowing participants to utilize and hone a broad set of Offensive Security skills. Many vulnerable machines have non-standard configurations, often forcing participants to dig deep into the discovered issues in order to complete their task rather than blindly using automated tools. This in turn provides for a richer and significantly more educational experience.
Our playground systems include Citrix environments, Windows Active Directory Domains, SCADA networks, IPS systems and corporate Antivirus solutions – all adding dimensions of difficulty and realism to the labs.
Dedicated Hosted Labs for Corporations
A full hosted OSIPTL solution can be purchased on an exclusive basis. This provides twenty user accounts and a suggested ten concurrent users (depending on usage profile) to the OSIPTL along with a management account. The management account has a wide array of functionality such as the ability to revert all virtual systems at any time and control what systems are accessible per user. User account progress can be tracked by the management user to identify what systems have been compromised. Access can be obtained in 90, 180, and 365 day increments. Contact us for more information on how to sign up.
Shared Hosted Labs access for Individuals
We plan to have the Offensive Security Playground available in early 2015 to individuals requiring this service. We will keep you informed when this service goes live via our blog and twitter announcements.
