The Certified Penetration Testing Consultant course is designed for cybersecurity Professionals and IT Network Administrators who are interested in conducting Penetration tests against large network infrastructures similar to large corporate networks, Services Providers and Telecommunication Companies.

The training starts from basic packet capturing and analyzing by using common tools and continues with Layer2 attack vectors, Layer3 based attacks; including both IPv4 and IPv6 stacks, routing protocol attacks (OSPF, BGP, etc) and then jumps over to Service Provider level attacks related with very common used MPLS, how to use relays and pivots, VPN attacks including IPSEC protocol suite, SSL attacks, and finally covers NIDS/NIPS evasion and implementation techniques. At the completion of each module, students are going to be able to practice their knowledge with the lab exercises that are specifically prepared for the covered materials during the theory.
