Permanent link: [Article]-Review: Penetration Testing with BackTrack by Offensive Security Part 1
I have had the opportunity to enroll in the "Pentesting With BackTrack" course from Offensive Security. Over the next 30 days, I will be posting an update a week with my thoughts on the content that I have worked through in the previous week, along with experiences with labs, support, and also personal revelations. At the end, I am going to give a more objective report on the entire class, listing what I see as strengths, weaknesses, as well as benefits and deficits compared to other classes I've taken. So follow along, as I go from the period before the class starts, all the way through the exam.
The course is described by Offensive Security as, "'Pentesting with BackTrack' (previously known as Offensive Security 101) is an online course designed for network administrators and security professionals who need to get acquainted with the world of offensive security. This penetration testing course introduces the latest hacking tools and techniques, and includes remote live labs for exercising the material presented to the students. This course gives a solid understanding of the penetration testing process, and is equally important for those wanting to either defend or attack their network. The course can be taken from your home, as long as you have a modern computer with high speed internet."
