Cybersecurity Workshop - Penetration Testing with Armitage and Cobalt Strike
Saturday, August 10, 2013 130p - 600p
Teqcorner 1616 Anderson Rd., McLean, VA 22102
Join us for the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) Cybersecurity
Workshop hosted from our Washington, DC location. This is a hands-on,
practical workshop where you will put into practice those things you may
have read or covered in a class. This is also a great way to keep your
skills fresh if you're a veteran.
Every workshop addresses beginner and advanced topic material.
Beginners are encouraged to watch and learn as much as possible even
though you may not have a clue. Exposure to new tools and techniques by
watching will advance your learning process a lot quicker than trying to
learn on your own. You will get to ask questions and see how it's done
in the real world. Advanced attendees are encouraged to share and help
answer "noob" questions as much as possible so everyone can learn from
The Metasploit Framework is a must-have tool for penetration testers.
Armitage builds a workflow on top of the Metasploit Framework and
exposes its most advanced capabilities. Cobalt Strike augments Armitage
with tools to simulate advanced persistent threat-style targeted
attacks. This lab oriented class will introduce you to the penetration
testing process from the perspectives of Armitage and Cobalt Strike.
You'll learn how to craft an attack package, deliver it to a target, spy
on a user, attack systems from a foothold, and abuse trust
relationships to gain access.
