Pentesting and Exploiting Highly Secured Enterprise Networks is an action-packed hands-on class giving attendees a chance to perform real-world exploitation on enterprise network scenarios accompanied with practical lab exercises in a CTF style formart. The course goes far beyond simple exploitation of low-hanging fruits and shows pentesters how to perform the abilities of an advanced attacker to find out flaws in a secured networks and calculate the business risk associated with these flaws.

This training is intended for senior/experienced pentesters. Just running a vulnerability scanner and submitting that as your report provides no real benefit to a company. This goes far beyond your traditional pentesting courses. Real-world Enterprise Networks are much complex in nature, needing your special attention choosing the techniques and tools that you use in order to infiltrate. A senior penetration tester must succeed when others fail. A senior pentester doesn’t give up when particular exploit is not working, he tries to analyse the exploit and make some modification those are necessary. He should think outside of the box and come up with solutions to complex problems. He must have knowledge of all domains and his skill should range from network attacks, web attacks, scripting to system exploitation.

This training is a result of years of pentesting experience, compromising some of the highly secured networks combined into one practical and hands-on class. This course provides in-depth knowledge of the most powerful attack vectors and provides labs to perform these attacks in numerous hands-on scenarios. The course will walk through dozens of real-world attacks used by the most seasoned penetration testers. Since the class is extremely practical, expect to pop a lot of shells during the attack. The training class has a number of targets and you’ll be exploiting both Windows and Linux platforms.

We also cover topics including Exploiting private networks, Writing own python exploits, Shellcoding for customizing exploits, attacking Databases, chaining multiple vulnerabilities together to exploit the system and more. The class also gives attendees a hands-on experience with “popular” vulnerabilities such as Shellshock, Heartbleed, POODLE, Padding Oracle, JSON Web Token, SSLStrip, Kerberos Attacks (Pass-the-Hash, Pass-the-Tickets, Golden tickets, Silver tickets etc.) and more.

Attendees will be provided with hands-on experience into techniques currently used by hackers to bypass network-based enterprise intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), proxies, DLP, DMZ Web-application Firewalls (WAF). We will use case studies of Machine Learning for detection and evasion of IDS/IPS, AV etc. Attendees will learn learn advanced evasion techniques of corporate host-based countermeasures including antivirus, UAC by developing custom backdoors, payloads into protected enterprise networks. The training includes 50+ labs and 30+ challenges which are inspired by real world vulnerabilities and case studies.

We will build Command and Control (C2) because network intrusion may be detected and compromised system can be patched, some exploits only work once, to survive the reboot. C2 will be Stealth to avoid detection by IDS, persistence to survive reboot, encryption for secure communication and minimising possibility of firewall interference.

After the training attendees will get 1 month remote lab access free with additional 20 challenges and 5+ hours of HD videos of training walkthrough. Also before the 1 month of training, attendees will get videos on basic Assembly Language and Python Scripting which will help them in class.
