This course is aimed at beginners and intermediates who are interested in network security, ethical hacking, and penetration testing. We cover the fundamentals of networking, operating systems, especially Linux, and key concepts in ethical hacking, from information gathering to post-exploitation. The course concludes with real-world Capture the Flag (CTF) challenges to test your understanding and provide hands-on experience. We will also provide career advice for those looking to break into the cybersecurity industry.
Information Gathering and Reconnaissance
This module will cover the first phase of ethical hacking – information gathering and reconnaissance. We will introduce tools such as Nmap, Whois, and Wireshark. We will also cover social engineering techniques such as phishing, DNS enumeration, and email harvesting.
Enumeration and Scanning
In this module, we will delve deeper into the second phase of ethical hacking – enumeration and scanning. We will discuss tools like Nessus, OpenVAS, and Metasploit. We will also cover vulnerability scanning, port scanning, and network mapping.
Introduction to Exploitation
This module introduces you to the next phase – exploitation. We will discuss various types of vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, SQL injection, and cross-site scripting. We will also introduce tools like Metasploit and Burp Suite, among others.
This module will cover what to do after successfully exploiting a system. We will discuss maintaining access, clearing logs, privilege escalation, and pivoting. We will also introduce you to tools like Mimikatz and Meterpreter.
Web App Pentesting
In this module, we will discuss penetration testing specifically for web applications. We will cover web vulnerabilities such as OWASP Top 10, and tools like OWASP ZAP and SQLMap.
The final module will cover career advice for those looking to break into the cybersecurity industry. We will discuss different career paths, necessary certifications, and how to prepare for job interviews in this industry. We will also introduce you to various resources for continuous learning in cybersecurity.
