Mastering Metasploit Framework ​Course Overview

A Metasploit framework is a powerful tool used by cybercriminals and ethical hackers to probe systematic vulnerabilities on servers and networks. It is an open-source project providing the content, infrastructure, and tools for performing penetration tests and extensive security auditing. It is a Ruby-based, modular penetration testing platform enabling you to write, test, and execute code.

The Knowledge Academy’s 2-day course will equip delegates with comprehensive knowledge about the working of Metasploit. This course will make delegates dive into the world’s leading open-source exploitation framework and will exhibit how to use it in every aspect of the penetration test. Delegates will learn how to manage user accounts and license keys. In addition, they will develop their knowledge and skillset whilst working with the vulnerability validation wizard.

During this course, delegates will learn how to manage and reuse credentials. Delegates will get to learn about the concept of metamodules and social engineering. Furthermore, delegates will acquire in-depth knowledge of how to manage database and workspace as well as how to run Metasploit remotely. Post completion of this training, delegates will be able to manage notes, tasks, and vulnerabilities. So, learn the significant techniques in Metasploit by attending our comprehensive course from scratch.
