Penetration testing is often a contest between an attacker of limited resources and a target with signficant defenses and capabilities. Security tools, including the Metasploit Framework, are designed to extend the capabilities of a single attacker and gain access where none is provided. This course dives into the newest features of the Metasploit Framework and demonstrates how to use these features in every aspect of a penetration test. Students will learn how to create custom modules to solve specific tasks, launch wide-scale client-side attacks, operate a malicious wireless access point, generate custom backdoors, bypass intrusion prevention systems, automate the post-exploitation process, and much more. The course is split between hands-on labs and lectures, with a focus on practical techniques that have proven successful in the real world.


Students will need a laptop capable of running Metasploit 3.2 and VMWare Player, Server, or Workstation. Students should have working knowledge of Microsoft Windows and at least one Unix-like operating systems (Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, etc). Students should have some experience with one or more scripting language, such as Ruby, Perl, Python, or PHP. Students should also be familiar with TCP/IP networking and be comfortable configuring TCP/IP settings on Unix and Windows platforms.
