Hacking 101

Delivery: classroom // Duration: 3 days

During this course attendees will learn basic principles as well as common and more advanced tricks to break modern security mechanisms. The subjects of this workshop cover network security, low level software exploitation, reverse engineering, web application macking and more.


Learning Objectives

Attendees will learn to think and act with the mindset of an attacker. Understanding their routine, tools and procedures will enable you to gain a novel outside perspective onto your current setups and deployments. With this knowledge, you will find yourself capable of locating and addressing the most pressing threats faster and more efficiently. 


Course Content

Day one

  • Enumeration: Initial information acquisition (for example about Google Hacking, social networks or meta data analysis)

    • Network based enumeration (Portscans, different Portscan technologies, Banner Grabing)

    • Basic analysis of network traffic

  • Vulnerability Scanning: Introduction to different categories of weak points

    • Identification of weak points

  • Buffer Overflows: Functionality of Buffer Overflows

    • Modeling own exploits

Day two

  • Exploiting with Metasploit: Handling the Exploit Framework

    • Selection of suitable exploits

    • Goal-orientated use of payloads

    • Modeling your own Trojans

  • Hacking Applications: Comprehension of weak points on the level of application

    • Analysis of sample programs

    • Avoiding safety functionality in applications

  • Hacking Networks part 1 (regarding Cisco hardware): Attacks on Layer 2 (Man-in-the-Middle situations)

Day three

  • Hacking Networks Part 2 (regarding Cisco hardware)

  • Attacks on Layer 3: Attacks on network devices as well as on infrastructure

  • WLAN Hacking: Avoiding basic protective mechanisms, evaluation of advanced mechanisms

All modules entail concluding hands-on exercises, in which participants can exercise their theoretical knowledge practically. In compliance with the participants the results of these practices can be requited with scores, which will lead to a positioning on a scoreboard.


Target Audience

The course imparts essential knowledge and practical experience for a discrete realization of established and current attacks.This knowledge is useful to understand security measures and to evaluate their necessity.


Pre-requisite for Course Registration

  • IT-Security officers

  • Prospective penetration testers

  • New members of CERTs/Red teams


Pre-requisite for Attending

Own computer (preferably laptop), USB-/CD-bootable, administrative rights inclusive installed VMWare Workstation/ VMWare Player/Virtual Box.

  • Basics, which are of advantage for this course

  • Basic programming knowledge in at least one coding language

  • Practical experience with Shells(Command/PowerShell in Windows, Bash in Linux)

  • Basic TCP/IP knowledge (for example ARP, ICMP, SNMP)

  • Basic network infrastructure knowledge (Switching: VLAN, Trunk Port, routing: statistical, dynamic routing)

  • These basics are not absolutely necessary for participating, but foster the learning success during the course

Orientieren Sie sich an der Beschilderung “Frachtgebaude” unde verlassen Sie die Autobahn. Folgen Sie der Straße nach rechts, Sie überqueren auf der Brücke die S-Bahn Linie. Biegen Sie bei der nächsten Möglichkeitne rechts ab un folgen dem Straßenverlauf über eine langgezogene Rechtsverurve. Fogen Sie der Straße weiterhin bis Sie links abbiegen können. Biegen Sie links ab. Zu Ihrer Rechten erreichen Sie die “Luftpostleitstelle”.

By car - from the A92 / Munich

Follow the signs “Frachtgebaude” and leave the motorway. Follow the road to the right and cross the S-Bahn line on the bridge. At the next opportunity, turn right and follow the road over a long right turn. Continue to follow the street until you can turn left. Turn left. On your right you will reach the “Luftpostleitstelle”.

Mit der S-Bahn / dem Flugzeug

Steigen Sie in die S-Bahn-Linie S8 oder S1 und fahren Sie bis zum “Besucherpark”. Verlassen Sie in die S-Bahn-Station in Richtung Flight- Operations-Center (FOC/Lufthanasa) und folgen Sie am Ende der Treppen nach unten der Straße zu Ihrer Linken bis zum Ende der “Frachtgebäide”. Gehen Sie weiter gerade aus und folgen Sie der Straße nach rechts. Am Ende dieser Straße erreichen Sie die “Luftpostleitstelle”.

By S-Bahn / airplane

Get on the S-Bahn line S8 or S1 and drive to the “Besucherpark”. Exit the S-Bahn station towards the Flight-Operations-Center (FOC / Lufthanasa) and at the bottom of the stairs, follow the road to the left to the end of the “Frachtgebäide”. Continue straight ahead and follow the road to the right. At the end of this street you reach the “Luftpostleitstelle”.

Are events and trainings in English or in German?
