Penetration testers need to account for all types of systems available in an environment. In addition to servers and network appliances, this can also include cloud-based systems. In this course, you'll learn how to research attack vectors and perform attacks on cloud technologies. You'll explore common cloud-based attacks, such as credential harvesting, privilege escalation, and account takeovers. You'll learn how to identify misconfigured cloud assets, including identity and access management and containerization technologies. You'll move on to explore how cloud malware injection, denial of service, and side-channel attacks can exploit a system. Lastly, you'll learn about common cloud tools such as the software development kit. This course is one of a collection that helps prepare learners for the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) certification exam.
