Day of Shecurity - Network Pen Testing Tool Kit: Nmap, Netcat, and Metasploit Basics

Date & Time:
Past Event
Bishop Fox speaking engagements on offensive security research and tools.

This hands-on workshop will introduce you to the top three tools needed to get started in network penetration testing: Nmap, Netcat, and Metasploit. We'll cover how to use Nmap both for port scanning and vulnerability discovery. We'll also use Netcat to grab banners, make HTTP requests, and create both reverse and bind shells. Finally, we'll learn the ins and outs of Metasploit, including how to integrate our Nmap scan results for even more ownage and using the built-in exploits to get shells.

By the end of the workshop, you will be port scanning, creating payloads, and popping shells. This technical workshop is designed to familiarize you with the necessary tools to continue your ethical hacking journey. From here, take your l33t new skillz and apply them to Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions or scanning your home network for vulnerabilities.

A laptop with the ability to install software is required. Attendees will receive detailed instructions on setting up the lab environment on their laptops before the event.

Security Analysts Kelly Albrink and Cecillia Tran will conduct this pentesting tools workshop at the Day of Shecurity conference on Friday, February 22, 2019.
