So if anyone asks where do I start or how do I break into this field, I think this will become THE place to send them. So spread the word and enjoy.
As always, let us know what you think. Raphael and I will keep an eye on this and make modifications if necessary to this totally free course.
Special thanks to Raphael Mudge. This is his work and he has graciously agreed to have this as an exclusive contribution to EH-Net. His is truly a valued member of the greater security community.
Permanent link: [Article]-Free Armitage and Metasploit Video Training Course
By Raphael Mudge, Armitage Creator
Armitage is a front-end for Metasploit that allows team collaboration and exposes the advanced features of the framework. Raphael Mudge has made a six-part training series on Armitage and Metasploit for the ethicalhacker.net community. These demonstration-heavy lectures introduce the penetration testing process and walk you through each step. You'll learn how to break into hosts, carry out post-exploitation activities, develop more access from your initial foothold, and you'll do this in a team environment.
These lectures were initially created for the Austin, TX ISSA and OWASP half-day Metasploit training event in June. Elated after several tex-mex meals, Raphael recorded these lectures for us. If you're new to penetration testing and want to understand Metasploit and Armitage, these lectures are for you. Also, be sure to read Hacking Linux with Armitage from February 2011. Enjoy the training!
