SANS Poster: Building a Better Pen Tester - PDF Download


Blog Post by: SANS Pen Test Team


It's here! It's here! The NEW SANS Penetration Testing Curriculum Poster has arrived (in PDF format)!

This blog post is for the downloadable PDF version of the new "Blueprint: Building a Better Pen Tester" Poster created by the SANS Pen Test Curriculum.

The front of the poster is full of useful information directly from the brains of SANS Pen Test Instructors. These are the pen testing tips they share with the students of SANS SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking and our other pen testing, ethical hacking, exploit dev, and vulnerability assessment courses.

The back of the poster has a checklist for scoping and rules of engagement, command line commands for Metasploit, Scapy, Nmap, and PowerShell, and information about Slingshot and the SANS Pen Test Curriculum.

Our hope is, the knowledge contained in this poster will help you become a better pen tester. And if you aren't currently a pen tester, that the information will you help you become a more informed information security professional.

Training: Take SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking at SANSFIRE 2018, in Washington DC, taught by course author Ed Skoudis, in July 2018.
