Learn How To Protect Your Network
(PRWEB) June 10, 2013
Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. this week released its "Advanced White Hat Hacking and Penetration Testing Tutorial," a course designed to provide advanced students in ethical hacking with a basic skill set to begin handling difficult security issues with their own problem solving skills.
Whitehat, or ethical hacking, has grown in lock-step with malicious hacking since the beginning of computer networking. In order to preserve software and protect data, companies, governments, as well as home users, must understand the technical details of how hackers and malicious programs infiltrate networks and computer systems.
InfiniteSkills' Advanced White Hat Hacking and Penetration Testing Video Training builds on the knowledge base built in the introductory course to begin helping students solve real-world problems using a core understanding of hacking tools and techniques.
Advanced White Hat Hacking and Penetration Testing is available bundled with the introductory course, Learning White Hat Hacking and Penetration Testing, at a discounted rate.
Course author Ric Messier is a computer security professional with decades of experience helping large, global companies secure their data and software systems. In addition to running a network security consulting company, Messier currently teaches network security at the college level and SPIP compliance at the postgraduate level at Brandeis University.
Messier's industry experience as well as his teaching experience make Advanced White Hat Hacking and Penetration Testing Video Tutorial an engaging and challenging way to quickly tackle the fundamental tools and technical concepts of ethical hacking.
"Ethical hacking is a difficult field that requires dedication, knowledge, experience, and the ability to think on your feet," Messier says. "This course will provide the key skills and a functional knowledge base as well as help students learn to ask the right questions when faced with difficult security issues."
After explaining how to get organized with the frameworks and plugins students will use, Messier explains advanced concepts in scanning systems, exploring types of scans, stealth scans, and various protocols involved in scanning.
He then explains the techniques and tools involved in acquiring data about a system, before going in-depth with the Metasploit, explaining how to use this important toolkit to create and use exploits to infiltrate systems.
From there, Messier covers web testing, explaining key concepts like running a Burp suite, passive and active scanning, and many more important tools. Other chapters cover key hacking concepts like reverse engineering and fuzzing.
