    Default Getting eCPPT Gold

    I am starting eLearnSecurity PTPv4 in order to prepare for PTX and PWK.

    Background: I have worked as a penetration tester for 2 years and have been working as an application security engineer. (blue team) I moved into California from Europe 2 weeks ago and have plenty of free time, so my goal is to study, study and study. As the first step on this road, I completed eMAPTv2.5 a month ago, but I'm still waiting for the exam results.

    As I have worked as a pentester, but haven't done any offensive stuff in two years, my main goal with the course is to get in shape and fill all the gaps that I may have before I finally tackle the OSCP exam. The first module will be web application penetration testing.

    Wish me luck!

    I have completed the slides and videos of module 1. Despite being a beginner course, it contained a lot of useful in-depth information about manually exploiting all types of SQL injection, including a clever little script for dumping data with blind SQLi. Everything else was pretty much mediocre, pretty much on par with the OSCP study material, just with more explanation.
    The wife wants to go downtown tomorrow, but I really hope that I can do some labwork tomorrow.

    No formal studying last weekend as I was participating at a local OWASP CTF. Drew first blood, managed to get the 4th place and learned a lot about analyzing binaries, reversing, steganography, CTF methodology and etc. I highly recommend participating in these events with a team, it's a lot of fun!

    I received my eLearnSecurity Mobile Application Penetration Tester certificate in the mail, which is awesome. Unfortunately I'm too lazy to properly frame it and display it at my desk.

    As for the PTP, I started Module 3. Information Gathering and Scanning (including the labs) are done and I learned quite a bit during lab-time. This is an area where I need to improve a lot, there are simply too much options when it comes to sneakiness and speed trade-offs.

    Next stop is enumeration. The video and the course material is already done, I just need to complete the labs.
