Advanced Windows Exploitation

Live Hands-on Penetration Testing Training

Live Hands-on Penetration Testing Security Training Course

Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) is our most demanding Offensive Security Course, featuring a sophisticated hands-on computer lab environment challenging you to bring out your best penetration testing skills. The case studies covered include public vulnerabilities as well as vulnerabilities discovered by our research team, all of which cover a wide range of applications and exploitation techniques. This is not an entry level security training course! Experience with a debugger, previous Windows exploitation skills, and an intense tolerance for hard work are required.

Why is hands-on security training important?

You won’t just read about theory, but rather you will be creating exploits by hand for non-staged systems with real world applications. Once again, this is NOT an entry level security course! We expect students to have previous exploitation experience in a Windows environment, understand their way around a debugger, and be prepared for intense suffering at the hands of our instructors. Because of this, the Advanced Windows Exploitation course is only taught in a live classroom environment.

AWE Registration Options 

Advanced Windows Exploitation is especially demanding, requiring a great deal of student-instructor interaction. For this reason, the AWE security training course is only available in a live hands-on environment at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas, NV.

Additionally, to get the most out of this live penetration testing course you will want to spend time in the evenings working through case studies and reviewing the provided reading material. This is the hardest and most intense Offensive Security course we offer and requires a lot of commitment from the students.

OSEE Certification - Offensive Security Penetration Testing Training OSEE Certification

The Offensive Security Exploitation Expert (OSEE) is the companion penetration testing certification to the Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) course. The OSEE certification thoroughly assesses not only the students understanding of the course content, but also their ability to think laterally and adapt to new challenges.

The OSEE virtual lab environment is configured with a limited number of target systems with software containing specific unknown vulnerabilities for which the student must develop exploits. In this extremely challenging exam, the student is provided with 72 hours in order to develop their exploits and fully document the steps taken.

The OSEE certification exam takes place completely online, with students connecting to our VPN virtual lab environment so you will need a stable, high speed Internet connection to take the Advanced Windows Exploitation exam.
