OSCP - Offensive Security Certified Professional

Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) is an ethical hacking certification offered by Offensive Security that teaches penetration testing methodologies and the use of the tools included with the Kali Linux distribution (successor of BackTrack).

 The OSCP is a hands-on penetration testing certification, requiring holders to successfully attack and penetrate various live machines in a safe lab environment. It is considered more technical than other ethical hacking certifications, and is one of the few certifications that requires evidence of practical penetration testing skills.

OSWE certification

Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (WEB-300) is an advanced web application security course. We teach the skills needed to conduct white box web app penetration tests.

WEB-300 now features three new modules, updated existing content, new machines, plus refreshed videos.

Students who complete the course and pass the exam earn the Offensive Security Web Expert (OSWE) certification, demonstrating mastery in exploiting front-facing web apps. The OSWE is one of three certifications making up the new OSCE3 certification, along with the OSEP for advanced pentesting and the OSED for exploit development.

PEN-300 and OSEP Certification

Evasion Techniques and Breaching Defenses (PEN-300) is an advanced penetration testing course. It builds on the knowledge and techniques taught in Penetration Testing with Kali Linux, teaching students to perform advanced penetration tests against mature organizations with an established security function.

As a general rule, it will not specifically deal with the act of evading a blue team but rather focus on bypassing security mechanisms that are designed to block attacks. This course is one of the replacements for the Cracking the Perimeter (CTP) course

PEN-210 and OSWP Certification

Successful completion of the course and exam confers the Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP) certification. Wireless Attacks (PEN-210) introduces students to the skills needed to audit and secure wireless devices. It’s a foundational course alongside PEN-200 and would benefit those who would like to gain more skill in network security.

In PEN-210, students will learn to identify vulnerabilities in 802.11 networks and execute organized attacks. Each student will set up a home lab to practice the techniques learned in this online, self-paced course.
