dirbuster Lab



The first simulation lab in the Hacking Web Server module introduces you to dirBuster.

dirBuster is an excellent tool for doing web application testing to target HTTP directories.  It runs on the Kali Linux system.

In this lab, you’ll learn the mechanics behind targeted Brute Force application testing, how to define specific guest/header request, and observe a demonstration of why you must include “HTTP” in your query setup syntax as part of this penetration testing task.

You’ll also learn target sources for controlled Brute Force testing, and how to locate the specific file or directory path target.
