Learning Objectives

Individuals taking the Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course will experience hands-on practical content that is extremely current and taught at the world's top conference stages. The course was written to address the need in the market for high-end training in the field of Infrastructure; inspired by daily on-site Penetration Testing and training in the community / conferences. The course enable students to practice topics such as exploit chaining, post-exploitation, combining low risk vulnerabilities to obtain high impact outcomes.


The course examines and hacks a wealth of modern vulnerabilities aka (MS14-068, MS15-077). All labs are virtualised and there are dedicated VMs for each student.

Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course will familiarise you with a wealth of hacking techniques for common operating systems, networking devices and everything else in between. The course is ideal for those preparing for CREST CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST and other similar industry certifications and those who perform Penetration Testing on infrastructure as a day job and want to take their skills to different level. From hacking Domain Controllers with MS14_068 to GHOST local root; VLAN Hopping to VoIP Hacking, a wide variety of approaches to Infrastructure Hacking is covered.


Whether you are Penetration Testing, Red Teaming, or hoping to gain a better understanding of managing vulnerabilities in your environment, understanding advanced hacking techniques for infrastructure devices and systems is critical. The Advanced Infrastructure class will get the attendees familiarised with a wealth of hacking techniques for common Operating Systems and networking devices.

We recommend the delegates have completed the Art of Hacking course before attending this course. While prior Pen Testing experience is not a strict requirement, a prior use of common hacking tools such as Metasploit is recommended for this class. Solid Linux skills and Windows OS knowledge is essential.

This course will be suitable for delegates interested in the SANS Institute course SEC560: Network Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking.
