Advanced Penetration Testing, Ethical Hacking, and Advanced Persistent Threat

Modern networks and systems are fully patched, hardened from attack, and armored to the hilt with expensive security gear --- but the bad guys still get in on a daily basis! How do they do this? Why is there a news release every day of another Fortune 500 company hacked, more government secrets lost to the adversary?

InfoSec Institute’s Advanced Ethical Hacking Boot Camp aims to train you on how to successfully attack fully patched and hardened systems, how to circumvent common security controls, and how to get to confidential data. You take this knowledge back to your organization and can then formulate a way to defend against these sophisticated attacks.

Course Highlights
  • High Pass Rates - Exam Pass Guarantee!
  • Top Instructors - Readily Available
  • Hands-on skills training and test preparation
In this hands-on training class, you will learn how to:
  • Leverage 0day (private unreleased exploits) attacks as part of the “Advanced Persistent Threat”
  • Run sophisticated attacks against client side applications
  • Use fuzzers and dynamic analysis to attack custom and COTS apps
  • Reverse engineer binaries to find new vulnerabilities never discovered before
  • Exploit secured web applications
  • Run chained exploits to pivot from multiple exploitable systems
  • Attack and defeat VPNs, IDS/IPS and other security technologies

All of this against fully patched, fully hardened systems.

You will learn how to chain a few commonly ignored low severity vulnerabilities into a highly critical remote exploit. Once your attacks are successful, you will practice data capture. Then, learn how to intercept and replay confidential data, for example, learn how to VoIP network traffic and data mine it for authentication information.

Every evening you will put everything you learned during the day together in an all-encompassing Capture the Flag (CTF) exercise. This enables you to test that you really understand how to use what you have learned in a real world situation, with an expert instructor by your side to assist your efforts.

The goal of this course is to help you master a more efficient and effective penetration testing process. By learning how to fully utilize 0day attacks that replicate an APT attack, you become a very valuable member of any penetration testing team. This course also supports and prepares you for the CEPT and ECSA certification exams.


Hundreds of exercises in over 31 separate Hands-On Labs bring up to speed with the latest threats your organization is most vulnerable to. Practice penetration testing on our virtualized environment that simulates a full range of servers and services used in a real company. Learn how to compromise web servers, virtual machines, databases, routers, firewalls, and then put it all together in an unscripted evening CTF (Capture The Flag) exercise.

At Intense School, we want you to succeed. Because of our dedication to our students we make an effort to constantly add new and improved items to our courses. We recently added the latest and greatest hacking tools ever you for you to expand your hacking knowledge - BackTrack, Core Impact, Canvas, and more. Our team of 3l33t hacking instructors live by the credo “give a geek a tool, and he can fix a problem.  Teach him to hack and he will be fixing everybody’s problems”.
