Duration: 1 Day
Date: 13th February 2014
What will you learn?
You will learn how to attack compromise vulnerable web applications. How you can gain access on such servers and use that to attack and compromise corporate networks. The learning is based on real world attacks using a hypothetical network setup. Additionally you will find out that there is lot more to hacking than just doing VA/PT of web applications.
This training is for you if
Advances in modern ICS systems such as the energy sector's "Smart Grid" brings great benefits for electric utilities and customer alike, however these benefits come at a cost from a security perspective. With increased functionality and addition inter-system communication, the smart grid brings with it a greater risk of compromise that both utilities and customers must accept to realize their desired business benefits. To minimize this risk, penetration testing in conjunction with other security assessment types must be performed to minimize vulnerabilities before attackers can exploit the critical infrastructures that exist in all countries around the world.
The training is a 6 hour of hands on hacking on a hypothetical scenario based attack. Each target will have vulnerabilities that can be exploited with web based attacks. Based on the access certain objectives will need to be accomplished. Scenarios will include uploading web shells, doing LFI/RFI, password hash cracking, data exfiltration using SQL injection and more.
