Metasploit Framework


The Metasploit Framework course was developed to provide students with an introduction to an exploitation framework or suite of penetration testing tools commonly used by penetration testers. This course provides students with an in-depth overview of the capabilities and contents of the Metasploit Framework and shows them how to install it, maneuver within it and maintain it. The course is designed as a precursor to the Penetration Testing Methodology course which uses the Metasploit Framework to teach students how to target, infiltrate and expand access within networks.

Penetration Testing Methodology includes significant amounts of hands-on practical application of skills learned. Students are introduced to topics and concepts through lectures then given a series of lab exercises to reinforce that learning and build skill. Students must exercise the penetration testing methodology, process and analyze collected data, and develop the necessary tradecraft and stealth in order to successfully complete the goals of the course.
