The topics covered in this course will prepare students who have interest in the security sector by introducing them to concepts in the ethical hacking field along with providing hands-on testing experience with the latest available tools. The labs will walk students through how to exploit commonly found vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10 and other common web and system vulnerabilities. This introductory course will contain labs that cover penetration testing, web application vulnerabilities and network security analysis. Each lab will be accompanied by a comprehensive document with step by step instructions for solving lab related problems, as well a video that would complement it.

Each lab will contain additional related problems that students should solve independently. These problems will test their knowledge and help them become proficient. The students will be given a short quiz after each lecture, their lab proficiency will be assessed to see if all lab goals are met and a final exam will be given at the end of the course.
