Explore advanced penetration testing tools and techniques used to find vulnerabilities, sniff network traffic, deal with cryptography, and crack passwords in this 14-video course. Learners will discover common techniques used to find weaknesses in both Linux and Windows-based systems. Key concepts covered here include finding vulnerability by using scanners and other techniques; how to capture and analyze network traffic with Wireshark; and learning about wireless security technologies, such as WEP, WPA/2/3, and their vulnerabilities. Continue by learning about cryptography and its four goals; learning to differentiate between symmetric and asymmetric cryptography; and learning how to choose a password cracking technique. Next, learn to differentiate between malware types and recognize the consequences of using targeted malware; learn to differentiate between scanning and enumeration; and learn the benefits of using Python to build scripts and deliver exploits. Then perform Linux privilege escalation with a penetration tester; perform Windows privilege escalation to exploit a Windows system by using the AlwaysInstallElevated technique; and use PowerShell to perform pen testing tasks such as reporting on all USB devices installed.
