About Project

Training and certifications are critical to industry but often lack hands-on experience. This project is designed to bridge the gap from theory to practice.

Project Goals

  • Develop hands-on laboratory exercises as a supplement for year-1 course material on ethical hacking
  • Train InfoSec professionals who require good understanding and proven capability in ethical hacking

Project Outcomes

  • Lab modules corresponding to theoretical underpinnings for various core knowledge units of Ethical Hacking.
  • Separate instructor-led and student practice activities.
  • Solutions for both instructor-led and student practice lab activities.
  • Assessment for measuring student learning outcomes for each module, with solutions.
