Project and oral exam
The course will cover the basic notions about network devices and protocols. Then, we will go through the main phases of the penetration testing activity: reconnaissance, vulnerability detection, exploitation, post-exploitation and reporting. Most of these phases will be explained though a virtual pentesting laboratory where we will run simulations and exercises.
