Many businesses operate networked infrastructure without any idea of the vulnerabilities they are exposing that can be exploited to gain unauthorized access to corporate information resources. One way for businesses to protect themselves is to regularly check their networks and systems as though they were bad guys. These vulnerabilities are related to configuration problems, bad software development processes and a variety of other common issues. The process of checking your own infrastructure is called ethical hacking. Students will learn the importance of ethical hacking and practice common methodologies for performing a penetration test against systems in order to expose vulnerabilities. This will include common attacks against Web services and vulnerable systems using a variety of professional tools.
