|What to bring:
Nothing to bring. All necessary equipment will be provided including preconfigured workstations, tools and utilities.
This class explores some of the most current and advanced Security and Hacking topics in the security field today. This is an in depth and detailed Hands On course designed for the advanced security professional interested in discovering the inner workings of serious security vulnerabilities and techniques to counter them.
Day 1 sets the foundation for establishing a strong basis in network monitoring, scanning, and attacks. Emphasis is placed on the tools and techniques used to monitor for malicious activity and understand how to methodically test security at a network level. Then, we move on to discuss Web-related vulnerabilities that affect any platform.
Throughout the day, students participate in labs that reinforce the topics presented. These labs include setting up an IDS, sniffing in a switched environment, remote service identification using binary nudge strings, and creating cross-site scripting payloads.
Day 2 presents advanced UNIX configuration techniques, including chroot environments. Students compile and test malicious Linux Kernel Modules, then implement a security-hardened kernel. Finally, the day ends with an interactive session on using covert channels over ICMP, UDP, TCP, and HTTP.
Each section contains several labs that lead the student through re-compiling a hardened kernel, modifying kernel modules to bypass detection software, and establishing and monitoring covert channels.
