This course covers session hijacking, where an attacker takes over a legitimately established session between a user and host. This is normally seen between a user and a Web server, but can occur with a Telnet session or other TCP-based connection.
We will cover basic information about session hijacking in Module 1. Since this is a skill-based course, we will then move into performing hands-on labs in Module 2. You will also learn how to set up and configure your own virtual environment for performing the example lab provided. The course will culminate with an assessment lab that students will need to perform (found in the supplemental resources section). Knowledge of session hijacking can be beneficial to defenders; however, this course is intended for ethical hackers (attackers). This course will be most beneficial for students that are studying for penetration testing related certifications, like the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), CompTIA Pentest+, GPEN, or OSCP.
Students should be familiar with common IT and cybersecurity terminology. Students should also have basic computer knowledge and an understanding of basic computer networking. Students will also need access to Cybrary labs to complete the hands-on part of this course.
By the end of this course, students should be able to:
- Explain what session hijacking is
- Perform a session hijacking attack
