The vendor neutral Certified Penetration Testing Consultant course is designed for IT Security Professionals and IT Network Administrators who are interested in conducting Penetration tests against large network infrastructures similar to large corporate networks, Services Providers and Telecommunication Companies. Instead of focusing on operating system level penetration testing, this course covers techniques on how to attack and prevent underlying network infrastructure and protocols. The training starts from basic packet capturing and analyzing by using both commercial and open source tools. From there, the student continues with Layer2 attack vectors, Layer3 based attacks; including both IPv4 and IPv6 stacks, routing protocol attacks (OSPF, BGP, etc) and then hops over to service provider level attacks related with very common used MPLS, how to use relays and pivots, VPN attacks including IPSEC protocol suite, and SSL attacks. Finally, the class will cover NIDS/NIPS evasion and implementation techniques.

This course uses in-depth lab exercises after each module. Students may spend 16 hours+ performing labs that emulate a real world Pen Testing model. Students will make use of scores of traditional and cutting edge Pen Testing tools (GUI and command line, Windows and Linux) as they make their way through mile2’s time-tested methodology.
