Course Description

This course will teach you how to effectively conduct vulnerability assessments using Nmap and penetration testing with the Metasploit framework. Nmap, also known as "Network Mapper", is a powerful, free, and open source utility that is widely used for network discovery and security auditing. It is a valuable tool for network administrators for tasks such as inventory management, service upgrades, and monitoring host and service uptime. The Metasploit Project, created in 2003 by H.D. Moore, was initially a Perl-based portable network tool but was later converted to Ruby in 2007. In 2009, the project was acquired by Rapid7 and has since become an essential part of their repertoire of tools, including IDS signature development, targeted remote exploit, fuzzing, anti-forensic, and evasion. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of how to utilize these powerful tools to conduct thorough vulnerability assessments and enhance your network security.
