In Order To Catch A Hacker It Takes A Hacker...

We read about it every day how companies such as Target, Home Depot, and organizations such as the Democratic National Convention (DNC) have been hacked.  The reason why these companies and organizations like them keep getting hacked, is often because the "Computer Security Experts" they hire have likely never been taught to hack anything, except through a virtual server.

The purpose of this course is to give students of all backgrounds and experience levels, a well-researched and engaging introduction to the realm of becoming a real hacker.  Starting with the first step of thinking like a hacker.   With real-world examples that reflect today's most important and relevant security topics. This course addresses how and why people attack computers and networks, so students can be armed with the knowledge and techniques to successfully combat hackers.

Because the world of hacking changes so quickly and is often the subject of much hype, this course also aims to provide a clear differentiation between hacking myths and hacking facts. 

Many hands-on exercises are included that allow students to practice the skills they have learned in hacking into real networks and/or websites.

Specific topics covered includes:

  • Ethics of Hacking and Cracking
  • Thinking Like A Criminal
  • Reconnaissance
  • Scanning Tools
  • Sniffers
  • TCP/IP Vulnerabilities
  • Encryption and Password Cracking
  • Spoofing
  • Session Hijacking
  • Hacking Network Devices
  • Trojan Horses
  • Denial-of-Service Attacks
  • Buffer Overflows
  • Programming Exploits
  • Mail Vulnerabilities
  • Web Application Vulnerabilities
  • Windows Vulnerabilities
  • Linux Vulnerabilities
  • Incident Handling
