Advanced Infrastructure Hacking

Displaying courses for Great Britain [Change]


For IT security professionals, staying up-to-date with the latest vulnerabilities and exploits is a real challenge. Knowing a vulnerability from a high level perspective is not enough. A good security professional must be able to demonstrate the impact of the vulnerability. To bridge the gap between understanding a vulnerability and to be able to fully exploit it.

During the 5 days event, delegates will be granted access to a state-of-the-art Hacklab and will be asked to enumerate, assess, exploit and then post exploit vulnerabilities to achieve various objectives within the Hacklab.


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.
