Metasploit has emerged as the de facto penetration testing, and exploit development framework. It includes scanning tools, exploits, post-exploitation tools, and fuzzing tools. This course will serve as hands-on introduction to the Metasploit framework, as well other penetration testing tools such as nmap and the Social Engineering Toolkit.
The class will begin with the basics of using the Metasploit Framework. We will continue on following the penetration test methodology to use Metasploit to exploit vulnerable systems in a lab. This class is suitable for those with no background in Metasploit or penetration testing as well as penetration testers who want to add the Metasploit Framework to their arsenal.
