One of the main responsibilities of a penetration tester is to gather information by way of reconnaissance. Simply put, reconnaissance is the process of collecting as much information as possible about a target. In this course, you'll learn how to gather information using various passive reconnaissance techniques such as DNS lookups, cryptographic flaws, and social media scraping. You'll learn how to differentiate between cloud and self-hosted reconnaissance and examine valuable data found in password dumps, metadata, and public source-code repositories. You'll also explore how to use open source intelligence techniques, tools, and sources to exploit weaknesses and gather intelligence. This course will help prepare learners for the CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-002 certification exam.
