Metasploit: Getting Started Course

I have a new course available at Pluralsight. It’s an introduction to the Metasploit Framework. In it, I focus on getting started quickly with using the framework. It’s a relatively short course (for me) at approximately two hours of content, including demonstrations. The course is called Metasploit: Getting Started. (Course Overview video)

This new course takes some of the original concepts presented in my very first Pluralsight course, Introduction to Penetration Testing Using  Metasploit, and condenses it down to the essential information. It’s a style of course Pluralsight uses to get learners up to speed quickly on a new piece of software, platform, or service. Those type of courses focus on basic concepts and demonstrations to quick get the learner started. Later courses are used to expand their knowledge on more in-depth concepts and capabilities.

Table of Contents

  • Penetration Testing Ethics and Processes
  • Metasploit Framework Capabilities
  • Metasploit Framework Architecture
  • Installing and Configuring the Metasploit Framework
  • Preparing an Attack
  • Launching an Attack
  • Working with the Metasploit Framework
  • Summary and Next Steps

I hope you will check it out. I look forward to feedback on it.

Future Work

Since I left out a lot of information to keep the total length around two hours and the content focused on the primary subject matter, I am creating supplementary videos to address some of the missing topics and even cover some of the content in more depth. It will be similar to end notes and footnotes for a nonfiction book. Unfortunately, that type of content may be interesting to only 4 or 5 people in the world. However, I am creating it as something that I would love to have if I were the learner.

There are a couple more courses on Metasploit and Meterpreter in the works, so stay tuned for details.
