    The lab includes Routers, Switches, Firewalls, Intrusion Detection
    Systems, Windows and Unix Hosts. It will cover around 40 extensive
    exercises, which will provide detailed practical knowledge of attacking
    and securing systems. Various commercial and open source tools will be
    used on multiple operating systems and network devices.

    Every day data will be collected in templates and reports will be

    We recommend you to come with your laptops, Ethernet card and cable
    (Straight and Cross Over); it’s not mandatory (we have enough PCs) but
    will help you to get most out of course. Install two operating systems
    (Windows 2k server / professional or XP professional and Linux) in it.
    Configure it in following way:
    • Dual-boot system with Windows partition and Linux on top of it.
    • Install Windows and Linux on top of it using any Virtual machine (e.g.
    VMware workstation). Virtual machine allows multiple operating systems
    simultaneously on single laptop. You should do this only if you have
    minimum 256 MB RAM in your laptop, so you can assign 128 MB RAM to each
    operating system. You can download a free thirty-day trial version from To establish a base line of commonality we
    recommend you to use RedHat 9.0, 8.0.

    Your laptops may be attacked in lab intentionally or un-intentionally by
    someone. OISSG will not be liable for this. We recommend you to not to
    store sensitive data in it.

    A CD full with attack code/tools/products and reading material will be
    given to you to use it in lab and later. You will also get updates of
    these CDs in future.

    Teamwork is a must in order to cover several topics in this short span
    of time.
