This course is an intense few days covering the keys to hacking with PowerShell. We know that most companies have an Active Directory infrastructure that manages authentication and authorization to most devices and objects within the organization. Many use PowerShell to speed up and simplify management, which only makes sense. Did you know that a large percentage of hacks over the last year included PowerShell based attacks? Well they did, which is why we spend 4 days learning how to hack like the pros using nothing but what is already available to us in Windows or now in open source code on Mac and Linux! The course is based on real world implementations of a windows infrastructure along with real world penetration testing techniques. You will leave with a real strong skill set to help test your windows environment like never before. An attendee will also walk away with a strong skill set on how to help prevent these attacks from happening in the first place!
Here are just a few things you will take away from this course:
- Detailed Lab Manual
- VMs for performing labs on your own
- New ideas on testing your own AD infrastructure
- Attacks you can use immediately
- How to secure against PowerShell attacks
