Linux for Ethical Hackers


Cyber attacks happen regularly over the internet.  You probably recall hearing of attacks at Target, Sony, and the Office of Personnel Management.  This class will introduce you to specific attack vectors used in actual breaches, and the general techniques hackers may use to penetrate a network or conduct lateral movement within a network.

This course will enhance and extend the knowledge gained in Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).  Students will learn additional specific techniques and be able to apply this to general offensive and defensive practices.  

Each student will have access to ten target computers with various vulnerabilities.  Labs will demonstrate how hackers can enter a network and move from one compromised host to additional exposed devices.


Upon completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Identify vulnerabilities using automated scanners,
  • recommend changes to mitigate the vulnerabilities,
  • employ existing exploits for vulnerable services and applications, and
  • describe the command and control function of a botnet.


This course is suitable for Information Technology Specialists, Help Desk Technicians, Desktop Support Technicians, Information Security Specialists, Computer Security Specialists, and novice penetration testers.


Students taking this course should have the following skills:
Strong foundation in Linux command line administration, (RH190 or equivalent experience), and general knowledge of hacker tactics, techniques, and procedures (CEH or equivalent experience).
