Permanent link: [Article]-Course Review: Hacking Dojo - Shodan Foundational Class
Over the past few years there has been a fairly steady increase in the amount of penetration testing classes available both in an online format as well as the classroom. Thomas Wilhelm is no stranger to the infosec community as he has written several books within the past few years in contribution such as “Professional Penetration Testing: Creating a Formal Hacking Lab” and “Ninja Hacking: Unconventional Penetration Testing Tactics and Techniques” as well as the initial offering into the certification realm with Heorot.net. He also has extensive experience within the information security field having worked in a penetration testing role as well as many others. Enter Hackingdojo.com.
Tom's intent with the Hacking Dojo class platform was to follow a traditional form of learning martial arts, take material covered with his already present Heorot.net certification programs, and mold it into a virtual environment. He does so in a way that information sharing and direct cooperation between students and instructor(s) could take place, rather than Heorot.net's “learn on your own” style of learning.
