This class has limited seating and requires registration via Universe. RSVPing on Meetup is not the same as buying a ticket! Universe registration includes access to all four classes in January and all class materials.


Description: This is part two of a four part, hands-on introduction to penetration testing Windows using the most well known penetration testing suite, Kali Linux and Metasploit.

Class 2: Exploiting Windows Systems with Kali Linux

Abstract: Now that we know something about the targets, we want to try to get some kind of access to them. In this class we will cover how to gain a foothold on Windows systems and we will use Kali Linux to identify vulnerabilities, find exploits for them in Metasploit, and use Metasploit gain access.

* Identify patched based vulnerabilites from network scans
* Find matching exploits for vulnerabilities
* Use Metasploit modules to get access and exploit them

What to Bring:
* Laptop where you have admin privileges
* Info on how to get into your BIOS

- Class 1: Network Reconnaissance with Kali Linux
- In order to be successful, students should know:
* Network reconaissance and enumeration
* Basic TCP/IP networking and addressing
* Basic Linux and Windows command-line navigation and commands
* How to boot their laptop from an external USB drive
* Basic security concepts

Details of the full four class course:

What will you learn:
* How to find vulnerabilities in Windows
* How to find exploits for vulnerabilities in Metasploit
* How to use Metasploit to exploit vulnerabilities
* How to find, modify, and use exploits in ExploitDB
* How to find privilege escalation vulnerabilities
* How to find and use privilege escalation exploits in Metasploit

What you get:
* Standalone pen-test lab with 6 vulnerable targets
* PDF of class materials
* Penentration Testing Worksheets

Where do I park? / How do I get inside?

Parking: There is free street parking on N Ontario St. It is usually easy to find a spot after business hours or on weekends.

Getting inside: Once you park, head down the walkway, we are the long building in the back (see link for overhead directions)
