Ethical Hacking - Penetration Testing

COSC A341
3.00 crs.

This course is a hands-on lab in “ethical hacking” and other forms of penetration testing for the purpose of finding and resolving vulnerabilities in computer systems and networks.  The course is founded on absorbing the Mitre ATT&CK framework as a means of understanding adversarial behavior.  Students perform penetration tests on specially configured target systems, which may include externally-managed cyber-ranges. Students also participate in bug bounties, and learn how to articulate and practice responsible disclosure of cybersecurity vulnerabilities.  Upon completion, students will be prepared for the Certified Ethical Hacker qualification test.
