Metasploit for Penetration Testing by Georgia Weidman

The class will begin with the basics of using the Metasploit Framework. We will continue on following the penetration test methodology to use Metasploit to exploit vulnerable systems in a lab. Jumping off from basic concepts we will move into advanced topics such as writing your own Metasploit modules and creating sophisticated client side attacks with Metasploit and the Social Engineering Toolkit. This class is suitable for those with no background in Metasploit or penetration testing as well as penetration testers who want to add the Metasploit Framework to their arsenal.

Cyberwar: using the techniques and tactics of APT's in Penetration Tests by Joe McCray

Google, Sony, Lockheed Martin, several large financial institutions, several large oil companies, the stock market, and countless other large organizations have all targeted and systematically compromised by hackers commonly referred to as Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). These hackers, use an attack methodology focused on stealth, data collection, and persistence.

This course picks up where the wildly successful "Advanced Penetration Tester: Pentesting High Security Environments" left off. Taking Intrusion Detection System (IDS) evasion, and Anti-virus bypass to the next level.

There are a few things to note that will be different from the "Advanced Penetration Tester: Pentesting High Security Environments" and from any other hacking course for that matter:

1. Per student request there will be NO Windows XP, or Vista in the course. Only Windows 7, and Server 2008 RC2, and new Linux distributions as the targets for students to go after.

2. Students attack a network of fully patched, and hardened Windows 7, Server 2008 RC2 hosts. Each target computer will be running a Host-Based Intrusion Detection System (HIDS), updated Anti-Virus, and a logging agent that reports to a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution.

3. There will also be a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS), a web content filtering proxy, and a stateful inspection firewall as well.

4. The classroom will have 4 projectors running to show in real time the events triggered by the HIDS, NIDS, Proxy, and the logs so the student can learn exactly what attacks and defenses really work in today's high security environment.

Students that are Network/System Administrators with three or more years experience working in environments such as financial institutions, DoD networks, or similar high security environments will benefit greatly from this course.

It is however primarily designed for Network/Web Application Penetration testers that are looking for the little tips and tricks that will help them better attack high security environments.

Corelan Live! by Peter Van Eeckhoutte

The Corelan Live Bootcamp is a truly unique opportunity to learn both basic & advanced techniques from an experienced exploit developer. During this 2 day course, students will be able to learn all ins and outs about writing reliable exploits for the Win32 platform. The trainer will share his “notes from the field” and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits.

We believe it is important to explain the basics of buffer overflows and exploit writing, but this is not “your average” entry level course. In fact, this is one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 stack based exploit development.

This hardcore hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of current Win32 (stack based) exploitation techniques and memory protection bypass techniques. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current techniques, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn these 2 days into a truly unique experience.

During the course, we not only share techniques and mechanics, but we also want to make sure you understand why a given technique is used, why something works and why something doesn’t work.

Finally, we offer you post-training support as well. If you have taken the course and you still have questions, we will help.

Visual Analytics - Delivering Actionable Security Intelligence by Raffael Marty

This workshop takes the audience on a fascinating journey of data analytics and visualization. The students will learn how to process data (log files), visualize them through actionable graphs, and analyze security related data. Past training attendees included employees of various Nation's secret services, large security vendors, and security analysts from all over the world. All of them attended to learn how to deal with the flood of security related data in an efficient way. The in-depth technical content is backed up and emphasized by numerous hands-on exercises, some of them utilizing a private extension of the DAVIX live CD.

Hacking IPv6 Network by Fernando Gont

The IPv6 protocol suite was designed to accommodate the present and future growth of the Internet by providing a much larger address space than that of its IPv4 counterpart, and is expected to be the successor of the original IPv4 protocol suite. The imminent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space has resulted in the deployment of IPv6 in a number of production environments, with many other organizations planning to deploy IPv6 in the short or near term. Additionally, a number of activities such as the World IPv6 Day in 2011 and the upcoming World IPv6 Launch Day (scheduled for June 2012) have led to an improvement in the awareness about IPv6 and an increase in the number of IPv6 deployments.

There are a number of factors that make the IPv6 protocol suite interesting from a security standpoint. Firstly, being a new technology, technical personnel has much less confidence with the IPv6 protocols than with their IPv4 counterpart, and thus it is more likely that the security implications of the protocols be overlooked when the protocols are deployed. Secondly, IPv6 implementations are much less mature than their IPv4 counterparts, and thus it is very likely that a number of vulnerabilities will be discovered in them before their robustness matches that of the existing IPv4 implementations. Thirdly, security products such as firewalls and NIDS’s (Network Intrusion Detection Systems) usually have less support for the IPv6 protocols than for their IPv4 counterparts, either in terms of features or in terms of performance. Fourthly, the security implications of IPv6 transition/co-existence technologies on existing IPv4 networks are usually overlooked, potentially enabling attackers to leverage these technologies to circumvent IPv4 security measures in unexpected ways.

The imminent global deployment of IPv6 has created a global need for security professionals with expertise in the field of IPv6 security, such that the aforementioned security issues can be mitigated. While there exist a number of courses and trainings about IPv6 security, they either limit themselves to a high-level overview of IPv6 security, and/or fail to cover a number of key IPv6 technologies (such as transition/co-existence mechanisms) that are vital in all real IPv6 deployment scenarios.

Fernando Gont, a well-known IPv6 security researcher will deliver a comprehensive IPv6 hacking training covering real-world IPv6 attacks along with real-world mitigations, thus preparing the attendees for deploying the IPv6 protocols in a secure manner.

Red Team Testing by Ian Amit and Chris Nickerson

Red Team testing is the pinnacle of security simulations. It is the most accurate and realistic scenario an organization can use to see how it really fares up against a real-world attacker, without taking the risk of an actual breach or loss.

In this training, you will learn how Red Team (or full scope) testing works, how to create a methodology for using a red team test not just as a one-off "see how I got in" case, but as a repeatable test with metrics and actionable results. We will go through all elements of a red team test, from planning and scoping, intelligence gathering, target selection, vulnerability analysis, risk analysis, exploitation and execution, resource usage and ad-hoc agent deployment, post-exploitation, documentation and recording of evidence, damage analysis, and reporting.

The training will arm you with not just tools and techniques, but a sustainable methodology which you could update as new tools and techniques are introduced.

Assessing and Exploiting Web Applications with Samurai-WTF by Raul Siles

This course will focus on using open source tools to perform web application assessments. The course will take attendees through the process of application assessment using the open source tools included in the Samurai Web Testing Framework Live DVD (Samurai-WTF). The course will take students through the steps and open source tools used to assess applications for vulnerabilities using a 4-step methodology (Reconnaissance, Mapping, Discovery & Exploitation), and various scenarios against vulnerable target web applications. The latest tools and techniques will be use throughout the course.

Elite Web Application Defense by Eoin Keary and Jim Manico

Writing Secure code is the most effective method to securing your web applications. Writing secure code takes skill and know-how but results in a more stable and robust application and assists in protecting an organisations brand. Application security is not commonly a part of many computer science curricula today and most organizations have not focused on instituting a culture that includes application security as a core part of their software development training efforts.

This intensive 2-day course focuses on the most common web application security problems, including aspects of both the OWASP Top Ten (2010) and the MITRE Top 25. The course will introduce and demonstrate application assessment techniques, illustrating how application vulnerabilities can be exploited so students really understand how to avoid introducing such vulnerabilities in their code. Students get experience via doing, both in terms of exploitation but also the latest defences against common and advanced attacks covering both traditional and RIA applications.
