Discover how to conduct penetration testing against specific local host operating systems, with an emphasis on Windows and Linux systems. This course can be used as part of the preparation for the PT0-001: CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam. You will learn how to recognize OS vulnerabilities, describe service and protocol configurations, and classify additional host-based exploits. As you delve into the topics, you will consider host-based and sandbox exploits and default account setting vulnerabilities. As a review exercise, you will list the five steps of a Linux privilege escalation exploit, name four protocol misconfiguration attack vectors, and name four features of securely encrypted enclaves.

  • recognize host OS vulnerabilities
    describe service and protocol configurations
    define Linux privilege escalation
    specify Windows privilege escalation
  • classify additional host-based exploits
