Windows User Mode Exploit Development (EXP-301) is an intermediate-level course which teaches students the fundamentals of modern exploit development. It starts with basic buffer overflow attacks and builds into learning the skills needed to crack the critical security mitigations protecting enterprises.
Students who loved buffer overflows in Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PEN-200) will find that EXP-301 takes those skills to the next level. This course is one of the replacements for Cracking the Perimeter (CTP), which we retired on October 15, 2020.
Those who complete the course and pass the 48-hour exam earn the Offensive Security Exploit Developer (OSED) certification. The OSED is one of three certifications making up the new OSCE3 certification, along with the OSWE for web application security and the OSEP for penetration testing.
