Topic Details
This is a virtual course on how to build a home lab for practical skills building. You will set up a hypervisor (Virtual box is free to install on Windows, MacOS and Linux). You will then install a pentesting distro and victim machine. You will also get additional resources for where to find additional attack machines.

Objectives – What You Will Leave Knowing
How to set up a home lab for building practical pentesting skills or competing in Capture the Flags (CTFs). You will leave with your own home lab to tinker and build your experience and skills.

A basic understanding of computers Willingness to learn Not required, but helpful (an account on tryhackme.com ) Download VMs and hypervisor prior to the class (for ease of keeping up)

Agenda for Training
Unlike some training where you have to set up before hand, the entire class will be about setting up. You will be provided the links to download the virtual machines prior to class start so that you can have it available to use during the workshop. These are massive files (3+ gigs).

Technical Requirements
Computer: At least 4g RAM, 128+ hard drive, Base operating system (ideally you should have 8g RAM if you want to run an attack machine plus target VMs)
