Courses & Certification Provided by Offensive Security
OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) attracts of the cybersecurity professional, out of various courses.
What is OSCP?
The OSCP examination consists of a virtual network containing targets of varying configurations and operating systems. At the start of the exam, the student receives the exam and connectivity instructions for an isolated exam network that they have no prior knowledge or exposure to.
The successful examinee will demonstrate their ability to research the network (information gathering), identify any vulnerability and successfully execute attacks. This often includes modifying exploit code with the goal to compromise the systems and gain administrative access.
The candidate is expected to submit a comprehensive penetration test report, containing in-depth notes and screenshots detailing their findings. On the basis of difficulty and level of access obtained, the points are awarded for each compromised host.
Real World Benefits
An OSCP, by definition, is able to identify existing vulnerabilities and execute organized attacks in a controlled and focused manner, write simple Bash or Python scripts, modify existing exploit code to their advantage, perform network pivoting and data ex-filtration, and compromise poorly written PHP web applications.
The twenty-four-hour examination also demonstrates that OSCPs have a certain degree of persistence and determination. Perhaps more importantly, an OSCP has demonstrated their ability to think “outside the box” and “literally.”
The only way to take the OSCP certification exam is to first complete the Penetration Testing with Kali Linux training course, where students learn to identify and exploit a wide array of operating systems in our vast online VPN lab network.
