Cracking the Perimeter

Offensive Security Wireless Attacks


The field of penetration testing is constantly evolving. Both security awareness and security technologies are on the rise, and the bar required to “crack” the organizational perimeter is constantly being raised. Public exploits and weak passwords rarely do the job, which require the attacker to have an expanded set of skills in order to successfully complete the penetration test.
In this course, we will examine several advanced attack vectors, based on real live scenarios we have encountered from our penetration testing experience. In addition, we will add some “special features” in BackTrack, designed to save you time and effort.

Topics such as cross-site scripting, directory traversal, antivirus avoidance, manual shellcode encoding, and much more will be covered with a high level of detail. Candidates will learn how to combine imaginative thinking with advanced attack vectors to bypass the targeted security control. CTP is among the most challenging courses of its type.
