    Penetration Testing with Kali Linux will be available for purchase starting on 05 January, 2014. Offensive Security students and alumni will be receiving an email from us within the next week with information regarding discounted upgrades.

    I wonder how much the upgrade will be for those who already have PWB version 3.

    Also, I initially purchased PWB version 2 than upgraded to version 3. Although they have made many little improvements here and there, it wasn’t a complete re-write (obviously). So I wonder what would actually be different in this new version of the course, other than the Backtrack vs Kali differences…

    I totally agree with impelse. $999 for an exam + about $50 for shipping your certificate, that’s really expensive.

    Also, it’s an extra $400 every 4 years. But I guess that’s more or less the same as paying $100 per year to keep my CISSP… :-

    In average, it costs me about $500/year just to keep my certifications… πŸ˜› But, they really opened some doors that would have been closed otherwise.

    It’s tough!!

    Thanks Ziggy,

    That’s basicaly the only reason I found for renewing it. I am not sure I am ready to spend several thousands dollars to get GCIH, etc to finally get to GSE… :-

    You what, I have a question related to this topic.

    Should I “renew” my GSEC certification, given all the other ones I have (see in my signature)? It’s more of an intro cert…

    I am paying from my own pocket… :-

    Wow, that’s insane!!

    I guess it makes algorithms like Bcrypt and SHA512crypt shine (bottom of the article).

    Thanks for the link!

    Hmm, yeah maybe it’s just me…

    IS it possible to find out how many people attended? The only thing I could find was on wikipedia: “In 2010, over 10,000 people attended DEF CON 18”. Not really precise…

    I wonder how many people showed up to DC21…

    Another great book is “Hacking Electronics: An Illustrated DIY Guide for Makers and Hobbyists” by Simon Monk. http://www.amazon.com/Hacking-Electronics-Illustrated-Makers-Hobbyists/dp/0071802363/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376915568&sr=8-1&keywords=hacking+electronics

    This books really slowly takes you to a good level in electronics by explaining very well the concepts but without too much math.

    I found too many books or tutorials that focused on the experiment without spending time on the fundamentals. After these experiments, I couldn’t create something new by myself. But with this book, I was able to UNDERSTAND the concepts and create new things by myself.

    A true gem…

    Is it me or there was less people attending Defcon this year?

    Maybe it was better organized or something, but it really felt like it wasn’t that crowdy…

    Maybe Defcon is slowly going down?!?

    The BeagleBone Black is too powerful for what I am doing!!

    But it’s crazy to see what we can get now for $45.
    I will stick with my Arduino Uno for now, but I will definitively get this one later this fall.

    Thanks Don! πŸ˜‰

    Are you sure about that caissyd?

    Maybe I wasn’t clear, but my whole post was about the fact that “hacking” means a lot of different things…

    Let me use another example: Writting expoits in assembly is not the same as cracking a WEP key.

    You can end up linking the two together, for example you break the WEP key, you get access to a network and you write an exploit in assembly to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in an internal service. But my point was that you have to start somewhere and can’t learn everything at once…

    So UKSecurityGuy, I agree with you, but that wasn’t the point I was trying to make. I hope it’s clearer now…

    Hi d3v0t3d and welcomed to the forum!

    First of all, you’re at the right place. There is an enormous amout of material to learn and like superkojiman said, it takes a lot of time to get good at this. Think in years, with a big fat “S”.

    But what got you interested in hacking? It’s a huge and really diverse. hacking your way on an internal network to become admin on a Win 2008 server is totally different than finding a rogue wireless access point!

    I suggest you start with one thing and dive into the subject. So what’s your thing? Do you prefer web apps, Windows, wireless, database, etc? Let us know what interests you and we can guide you in learning about it! πŸ˜‰
