I have done my CCNA stuff, I have done all my RHCT and some RHCE stuff and now im working on my CCNP. However i still have problems understanding how protocols work.
Ok now that that is out of the way here is what i have gained from friends and professors/classes for net security.
Hacking exposed 5th edition
CEH study guide 2009 edition.
pen test open source tool kit vol2 2007 (lost the dang CD)
A few labs from backtrack(received by a professor)
I need to build a good lab as well. I have 3 cisco enterprise routers and 5 switches. What is a good lab set up?? oh and i have a really powerful desktop for vm's..I have heard about that course by backtrack but never looked into it cuz i have no money for that. BUT i want to build the same lab environment that they use so if anyone has taken the courses it would be nice to know what machines or devices you attacked.
Ok thats it i think..
I really really appreciate this guys. Im not kidding. Thank you so much.
PS. im not looking for someone to hold my hand perse, but rather "shove" me in the right direction.
