Lesson descriptions
Module 1, "Introduction to Ethical Hacking and How to Plan a Security Penetration Test," introduces the concept of ethical hacking and how the cybersecurity industry goes about implementing field-tested security parameters using penetration testing. It walks through the planning and scoping of a pentesting assessment.

Module 2, "Reconnaissance," covers all things related to the intelligence gathering phase of the pentest, including collecting information, port scanning, and vulnerability scanning. It then discusses how to use this intelligence to plan the pentest itself.

Module 3, "Attacks and Exploits," discusses how to use the intelligence gathered to perform the pentest. It goes over the various kinds of social engineering attacks and how to attack both wired and wireless networks. It then discusses how to exploit application-based vulnerabilities as well as local host and physical security vulnerabilities. Finally, it covers the clean-up and implementation of the post-exploitation techniques.

Module 4, "Tools and Reporting," shows how to find and leverage the various tools that are available for evasion, decompilation, forensics, and software assurance. It also goes into the reporting aspect of the job, including best practices and how to professionally recommend mitigation strategies for the vulnerabilities found.
