Re: Graduate CS Pen Testing Class



If you are planing on doing something about Pentest, I would recommend a deep view at Metasploit. You can find a really good free online course at MetaSploit Unleashed (http://www.offensive-security.com/metasploit-unleashed/Metasploit_Unleashed_Information_Security_Training). This is a good resource you can take ideas out for your course papers.

Hope it helps

Hi All,

I've been asked to teach a graduate level computer science course on
network auditing and penetration. I'm hoping to make the class as
hands on as possible, covering material from enumeration to system
hacking. What practical scenarios should be included in the course
content? I'd like to cover a range of popular tools but at the same
time make it more than a script kiddie class. Each scenario should
teach concepts as well as getting students familiar with different
security tools. If you were to one day have these students either
conducting audits for you or working for you what skill set would you
like them to have?

Thanks
