windows penetration testing

hello everyone.

Re: windows penetration testing

Welcome to the forums. 

You are asking a loaded question.  Each situation is going to be unique.  You also need to have a good base understanding of all the relevant subjects.  If you search this forum, you will find a ton of links to various book, online articles, challenges, etc that will get you started.

I like this pen testing framework:

http://www.vulnerabilityassessment.co.uk/Penetration%20Test.html

It offers a very good guideline and even links you to some of the tools that can be used to audit the relevant devices you will find.

Get thomas wilhelm's book Professional Penetration Testing. I just received my copy yesterday and while the first couple of chapters haven't taught me anything yet I think the book would of been awesome when I first started out.
