Attacks and Exploits: Network and Application Attacks for CompTIA Pentest+

by Matthew Lloyd Davies

In this course you’ll develop the knowledge and skills required to research attack vectors and perform attacks against networks, Wi-Fi assets, and applications in preparation for the CompTIA Pentest+ exam.

What you'll learn

In this course, Attacks and Exploits: Network and Application Attacks for CompTIA Pentest+, you’ll develop the knowledge and skills required to research attack vectors and perform attacks against various technologies. First, you’ll explore how to exploit wired networks using, amongst other things, on-path, relay, and spoofing attacks. Next, you’ll discover how to compromise wireless networks to sniff sensitive information, hijack web sessions, and spoof bluetooth connections. Finally, you’ll learn how to compromise applications by exploiting vulnerabilities and using injection attacks, and by performing API attacks. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to research attack vectors and perform attacks against networks, Wi-Fi assets, and applications in preparation for the CompTIA Pentest+ exam.
