The lecturer, Ed Skoudis, is very well known in the security community and regularly lectures for [...] - one of the premier information security sites on the web. The course consists of two CD's which have videos broken down into different sections, also included on the CDs are all the tools he demonstrates during the lectures, as well as a sample chapter from a book he has recently authored.
If that were not enough, you also get a workbook to go along with the lectures so that you can revise important information and write your own notes alongside the key points.
The whole approach of the CD is very hands-on, which is a refreshing change from the drab texts that we've all poured over at some point or the other. The course starts from scratch and in the introductory lecture, Skoudis walks you through a full installation of both Windows XP and Redhat Linux 7.2 on two separate machines so that you can have your own laboratory to try the tools out.
Whenever he is demonstrating something, the camera focuses right in on his monitor so that you can see exactly what he is typing at each screen. After you've set up the two systems, he talks you through getting them properly networked, and gives you a few tips on the hardware to buy when setting up your lab.
The rest of the lectures cover the five phases an attacker will use to get into your network.Read more ›
I really disliked having to install RealAudio back on my system just to play the files, I would have liked to see a choice between Windows Media, RealAudio and QuickTime (my personal choice). The supplemental material is very weak. It is just a hardcopy of the slides used in the videos. I had expected more detailed notes on the hardcopy.
But for the price, it's a deal for the newbie security minded administrator or for someone wanting to learn about some tools used for both good and nefarious reasons. Beats shelling out 1-2K for a 1 day seminar for the same info.
