Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP)
Offensive security prepares you for an increasingly critical field: security of information. Our courses concentrate on real-world penetration testing techniques and methods, preparing you to face real-world challenges. Our certifications demonstrate to employers that you possess the in-demand skills they require. In this article, few certificates will be discussed. The offensive security certified professional offers 3 courses that are as follows.
- PEN-200 Penetration Testing With Kali Linux
- PEN-210 Offensive Security Wireless Attacks
- PEN-300 Evasion Techniques And Breaching Defenses
PEN-200 – Penetration Testing with Kali Linux
The fundamental course of Offensive Security is penetration testing with Kali Linux (PEN-200). Those who are new to OffSec or penetration testing should begin here. This online course on ethical hacking is self-paced. It introduces penetration testing tools and techniques through hands-on experience. PEN-200 trains the skills and the way of thinking needed to be a successful penetration tester. Students who complete the course and pass the exam will receive the coveted Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification. Having this certificate in your CV can boost you among the potential employers of this industry, and you can be ahead.
- TCP/IP networking is well-understood.
- Experience with Windows and Linux administration is required.
- Familiarity with Bash scripting, as well as basic Python or Perl, is preferred.
What will you learn?
- Identifying and enumerating targets running various operating systems and services using information gathering techniques
- Creating basic scripts and tools to aid in penetration testing.
- examining, correcting, modifying, cross-compiling, and porting publicly available exploit code
- Remote privilege escalation, local privilege escalation, and client-side attacks
- Detecting and exploiting cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and file inclusion flaws in web applications
- Using tunnelling techniques to switch between networks
- Problem-solving abilities that are creative and lateral in nature
PEN-210 – Offensive Security Wireless Attacks
Wireless Attacks (PEN-2010) teaches students the skills required to audit and secure wireless devices. It is a foundational course that would benefit those who want to gain more expert knowledge in network security in addition to PEN-200. Students in PEN-210 will learn how to identify and execute organised attacks on 802.11 networks. Every other student will set up a home lab to put the knowledge gained in this online, self-paced course into practise. Successful completion of the course and examination confers certification to the Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP). Having this certificate in your CV can boost you among the potential employers of this industry, and you can be ahead.
Who this course aims at?
- Security experts and enthusiasts
- Administrators of networks
What are the prerequisites for this certificate?
All students must be familiar with Linux and understand TCP/IP and the OSI model. To finalise the exercises, you’ll need a modern laptop or desktop computer that can boot and run BackTrack, as well as specific hardware. You can take a course using Kali Linux, but the exam requires BackTrack.
PEN-300 – Evasion Techniques and Breaching Defenses
The Advanced Penetration Test for Evasion Techniques and Breaching Defenses (PEN-300) is a high-level penetration test. It builds on the skills and training taught in Kali Linux Penetration Testing by teaching students how to conduct advanced penetration tests against mature organisations with a well-established security function. Those who complete the course and pass the 48-hour exam will receive the Offensive Security Experienced Penetration Tester (OSEP) certification. OSEP is one of three certifications that make up the new OSCE3 certification, OSWE for web application security, and OSED for development.
- It is highly recommended that PEN-300 students either take the PWK and pass the OSCP certification exam or have equivalent knowledge and skills in the following areas:
- Working knowledge of Kali Linux and the Linux command line
- Excellent target enumeration skills for identifying vulnerabilities
- Basic scripting skills in Bash, Python, and PowerShell are required.
- Detecting and exploiting flaws such as SQL injection, file inclusion, and local privilege escalation
- A fundamental understanding of Active Directory and familiarity with basic AD attacks
- It would be advantageous if you are familiar with C# programming.
What will you learn?
- Getting ready for more advanced fieldwork
- Understanding of how to use client-side attacks to breach network perimeter defense, as well as how to avoid antivirus and allow-listing technologies.
- How to Tailor Advanced Attacks and Chain Them to Avoid Defenses
- execute sophisticated attacks while remaining undetected.
- The system comprises which have been optimised with security in mind
Who is this course intended for?
- OSCP-level penetration testers
