Course Description

Offensive Cyber Security tools and techniques are necessary to understand if you are either engaging in offensive activities or defending against them. It is also important to understand the basics of defense as well, either to employ them or to know their limitations and shortcomings. This course will introduce the student to these tools and techniques, with 2 days spent on basic penetration testing techniques, 1 day on basic web application attacks, 1 day on defensive measures and cryptographic techniques, and the last day spent on a live Attack and Defend exercise, in which the students will team up in a shared environment and go head to head with the other students, attacking the shared machines, and when successful, defending them from the other students.
