USA 2015: Pentesting: The Final Tier
In case Black Hat USA 2015's beginner-level and intermediate-level penetration test programming seemed unsuited to your skill level, today we present our final tier of penetration testing Trainings. If these advanced courses don't raise an eyebrow, well, maybe you should be teaching one, too.
We start with a Training from Vivek Ramachandran and Thomas D'otreppe, the authors of both Aircrack-NG, the popular Wi-Fi pentesting tool, and the successful book "Backtrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing." Advanced Wi-Fi Pentesting will live up to its name, teaching high-level material on bypassing / cracking WLAN authentication / encryption, attacking WLAN infrastructure and wireless clients, scripting Wi-Fi attack tools, using enterprise Wi-Fi worms, backdoors and botnets, and much more.
Next, how do hackers penetrate enterprise networks in the flash of an eye, ravage endpoints for sensitive data, and silently exfiltrate the crown jewels without ever popping an alert? Dark Side Ops: Custom Penetration Testing will focus on demonstrating stealthy techniques, advanced attacks, and custom malware to conduct realistic, targeted penetration tests. Expect an intensive, hands-on lab environment where you'll compile source code create custom shells and backdoors. Ultimately you'll learn to plan, exploit, persist, and evade detection in even the most secure networks.
Finally, for students who've already cut their teeth on the Metasploit Beginners Course, Rob "Mubix" Fuller and James "egypt" Lee will present its advanced counterpart, Abilities Inc - Metasploit Mastery Course, which they bill as one of the most intense classes on attacking networks. Over the course of two days you'll go from simply using Metasploit to molding it to do things you never imagined it could do.
Black Hat USA 2015 will occur at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas. It goes down August 1-6, so there's plenty of time to lock in early-bird discounts.
