The Metasploit Framework is well known as one of the most widely used tools by security professional to assist in a penetration test. A penetration test is one of the most effective ways to identify a network's weaknesses and vulnerabilities. By attempting to circumvent security controls and mechanisms, a penetration test is able to identify how an attacker may gain access to sensitive information or systems held by an organization. Metasploit is a framework constructed of modules that easily allow you to build attack vectors with exploits, payloads, encoders and more. Metasploit can assist throughout all phases of a penetration test; from reconnaissance and vulnerability scans to post exploitation with Meterpreter shells. The courses in this path will walk you through the basics and introduction to Metasploit, to launching your first payload, to advanced scripts and attacks with Meterpreter.
