Video Transcription
00:03
>> Welcome to Cybrary.
00:03
I'm Raymond Evans and I will be your host for
00:03
Cybrary's Web Application Penetration Testing course.
00:03
In this video, we will be
00:03
discussing introductions. What will be covered?
00:03
I'm going to talk about who I am,
00:03
and I'm going to talk about some assumptions about
00:03
this course and some of my expectations I have.
00:03
Who am I? My name is Raymond Evans.
00:03
I'm a hacker, and coffee enthusiast, and tech junky.
00:03
I hold certificates in Security+, GCIH, and GWAPT.
00:03
Security+ is, of course, Security+,
00:03
>> and GCIH is incident handling.
00:03
>> I'm a certified incident handler.
00:03
GWAPT is web application penetration testing.
00:03
I actively perform web application penetration testing
00:03
for a company out in St. Louis,
00:03
and I also actively perform
00:03
network penetration testing as well.
00:03
I host a podcast
00:03
called the CyDefe Cyber Security Podcast,
00:03
and I organize CTF's for the MCPA St. Louis Chapter.
00:03
What are some of my assumptions about this course?
00:03
This is not a basic course,
00:03
it's kind of more advanced.
00:03
You have to know how to use a bunch of
00:03
different tools or be able to
00:03
learn how to use different tools pretty quickly.
00:03
You have to at least have a basic knowledge of
00:03
Linux and be comfortable using the command line.
00:03
You've to know things like
00:03
>> ifconfig,ls, mkdir, cat, vi, or nano,
00:03
>> whichever is your preference,
00:03
>> and things like that.
00:03
You have to know how to
00:03
use command line and be comfortable with it.
00:03
I can use command line constantly
00:03
and you should be using
00:03
it too if you're in a Linux environment.
00:03
You should also be familiar with VM software.
00:03
We will be using VirtualBox.
00:03
You should be aware of how to
00:03
set it up and make changes to the VMs comfortably.
00:03
You should also be able to configure
00:03
your browser's proxy settings and
00:03
the network settings portion of your browser.
00:03
This will come in handy when we're using
00:03
tools like Burp Suite and ZAP,
00:03
because those tools use the
00:03
>> 127.0.0.1 address as a proxy.
00:03
>> You got to know how to do that.
00:03
>> What's covered?
00:03
>> I've talked about who I am
00:03
>> and I talked about some assumptions for this course.
00:03
>> Happy hacking everyone.
00:03
I hope you have a lot of fun with
00:03
this course. It's going to be a good time.
00:03
You are going to learn some awesome
00:03
stuff and you're going to learn
00:03
some really fun techniques and
00:03
get to try some different things out.
00:03
Get your hands nitty and gritty and dirty.
00:03
Web app pen testing, let's do this.
