Improving your Penetration Testing Skills
Evade antiviruses and bypass firewalls with the most widely used penetration testing frameworks
Gain insights into the latest antivirus evasion techniques
Set up a complete pentesting environment using Metasploit and virtual machines
Discover a variety of tools and techniques that can be used with Kali Linux
Penetration testing or ethical hacking is a legal and foolproof way to identify vulnerabilities in your system. With thorough penetration testing, you can secure your system against the majority of threats.
This Learning Path starts with an in-depth explanation of what hacking and penetration testing is. You'll gain a deep understanding of classical SQL and command injection flaws, and discover ways to exploit these flaws to secure your system. You'll also learn how to create and customize payloads to evade antivirus software and bypass an organization's defenses. Whether it's exploiting server vulnerabilities and attacking client systems, or compromising mobile phones and installing backdoors, this Learning Path will guide you through all this and more to improve your defense against online attacks.
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll have the knowledge and skills you need to invade a system and identify all its vulnerabilities.
