Black Hat USA 2013 brings together the best minds in security to define tomorrow's information security landscape. For the eleventh year running, SensePost will be at Blackhat Briefings offering our courses to those wanting to further their skills in offensive security.
Level: Introduction To Hacking
Hacking By Numbers Cadet Edition is offered as an introduction to the art and science of computer hacking. Even with no hacking experience whatsoever Cadet Edition will equip students with the basic thinking and technical skills necessary to start exploring this fascinating world. 'Cadet Edition' is an introductory course for technical people with no previous experience in the world of hacking. The course will present one with background information, technical skills and basic concepts required to get going. This includes some coding and scripting, networking and Internet technologies, basic methodologies, essential thinking skills, tools and current hacking techniques. Cadet Edition is the ideal training ground to prepare one for the HBN Bootcamp, further self-study or other hacking courses.
Reality, Theory and Practice! This course is the "How did they do that?" of modern hacking attacks. From start to finish, we will lead you through the full compromise of a company's IT systems, explaining the tools and technologies, but especially the thinking, strategies and the methodologies for every step along the way. "Hacking By Numbers – Bootcamp Edition" will give you a complete and practical window into the methods and thinking of hackers.
Level: Penetration testers wanting to fine-tune mobile assessment skills
As mobile phone usage continues to grow at an outstanding rate, this course shows you how you would go about testing the mobile platforms and installed applications, to ensure they have been developed in a secure manner. Hacking By Numbers Mobile will give you a complete and practical window into the methods used when attacking mobile platforms. This course is ideal for penetration testers who are new to the mobile area and need to understand how to analyze and audit applications on various mobile platforms using a variety of tools.
Level: penetration testers
Hacking By Numbers "BlackOps Edition" is a student’s final course in the Hacking By Numbers series before being deployed into "Combat." In BlackOps, students will sharpen their skills in real-world scenarios before being shipped off to battle. BlackOps covers tools and techniques to brush up your skills on data exfiltration, privilege escalation, pivoting, client-side attacks and harnessing OSINT. Students will also focus on practical elements of attacking commonly found systems and staying under the radar. After completing BlackOps students are considered weaponized and ready for the final and most intense course in the HBN series: Combat.
Level: Entry-level wireless security-training course
SensePost's Hacking by Numbers Unplugged is an entry-level wireless security-training course. It is done in the same style as our other HBN courses; highly practical with a focus on learning how things work, not just the tricks. The course starts off with some practically focused fundamentals. This includes wireless fundamentals such as antenna selection and radio radiation patterns, network fundamentals such as TCP/IP and wireless protocols. This section is kept intentionally short, with the rest of the fundamentals explained as part of a scenario based course. Three scenarios are used; the first is how to approach hacking a residential wireless network. Here technologies such as WEP are discussed. The second scenario is how to attack corporate networks, where WPA/2 technologies and attacks are discussed. The final scenario is an open coffee shop network where monitoring and interception attacks are discussed. By the end of the course, a student should have a much better understanding of wireless networks, and their security failings, and how to exploit these.
