The Corelan Live Bootcamp is a truly unique opportunity to learn both basic & advanced techniques from an experienced exploit developer. During this 3 day course, students will be able to learn all ins and outs about writing reliable exploits for the Win32 platform. The trainer will share his "notes from the field" and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits.
We believe it is important to explain the basics of buffer overflows and exploit writing, but this is most certainly not "your average" entry level course. In fact, this is one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 stack based exploit development.
This hardcore hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of current Win32 (stack based) exploitation techniques and memory protection bypass techniques. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current techniques, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn these 3 days into a truly unique experience.
During the course, we not only share techniques and mechanics, but we also want to make sure you understand why a given technique is used, why something works and why something doesn’t work.
We believe those are just a few arguments that makes this training stand out between other exploit development training offerings. Feel free to check our testimonials page if you want to see real, voluntary, unmodified and uncensored reactions by some of our students: https://www.corelan-training.com/index.php/testimonials/
Finally, we offer you post-training support as well. If you have taken the course and you still have questions afterwards, we will help.
Are you interested in the process of turning an advisory into a working exploit ? Do you want to figure out if a given security patch/hotfix should be applied immediately or not ? Do you want to learn how to read and understand existing exploits ? Have you ever found yourself in a position where you have to change an existing exploit but failed to make it work. Do you want to write reliable exploits and integrate them into Metasploit ? Do you want to know how shellcode works ? Do you have basic knowledge about win32 exploit development already, but want to learn more about some of the more advanced topics listed below (see course overview) ? Did you read the Corelan exploit development tutorials, but still want to take the classes to fully understand and master the concepts ? Do you have other reasons to learn how to write exploits for the Win32 platform ? Are you willing to suffer and bleed a bit, learn fast and not intimidated by debuggers and assembly instructions… …then this course is what you need !
Pentesters, auditors, network/system administrators, reverse engineers, malware analysts, developers, members of a security department, security enthusiasts, or anyone interested in exploit development.

The IPv6 protocol suite has been designed to accommodate the present and future growth of the Internet, by providing a much larger address space than that of its IPv4 counterpart, and is the successor of the original IPv4 protocol suite. The imminent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space has already resulted in the deployment of IPv6 in most large content distribution networks, a variety of ISPs, enterprises, and other production environments. Other organizations have aleady planned to deploy IPv6 in the short or near term. There are a number of factors that make the IPv6 protocol suite interesting from a security standpoint. Firstly, being a new technology, technical personnel has much less confidence with the IPv6 protocols than with their IPv4 counterparts, and thus it is likely that the security implications of the protocols be overlooked when they are deployed on production networks. Secondly, IPv6 implementations are much less mature than their IPv4 counterparts, and thus it is very likely that a number of vulnerabilities will be discovered in them before their robustness matches that of IPv4 implementations. Thirdly, security products such as firewalls and NIDS’s (Network Intrusion Detection Systems) usually have less support for the IPv6 protocols than for their IPv4 counterparts. Fourthly, the security implications of IPv6 transition/co-existence technologies on existing IPv4 networks are usually overlooked, potentially enabling attackers to leverage these technologies to circumvent IPv4 security controls in unexpected ways. Thus, the imminent global deployment of IPv6 has created a global need for security professionals with expertise in the field of IPv6 security, such that the aforementioned security issues can be mitigated. While there exist a number of training courses about IPv6 security, they either limit themselves to a high-level overview of IPv6 security, and/or fail to cover a number of key IPv6 technologies that are vital in all real IPv6 deployment scenarios. During the last few years, we have offered the training course “Hacking IPv6 Networks”, providing in-depth hands-on IPv6 security training to networking and security professionals around the world. Hacking IPv6 Networks (version 4.0) is a renewed edition of such training course, with a tremendous increase in hands-on exercises, and newly incorporated materials based on recent developments in the area of IPv6 security. The training is carried out by Fernando Gont, a renowned IPv6 security researcher.
Attendees are required to have a good understanding of the IPv4 protocol suite (IPv4, ICMP, ARP, etc.) and of related components (routers, firewalls, etc.). Additionally, the attendee is expected to knowledge about basic IPv4 troubleshooting tools, such as: ping, traceroute, and network protocol analyzers (e.g., tcpdump). Basic knowledge of IPv6 is desirable, but not required.
Network Engineers, Network Administrators, Security Administrators, Penetration Testers, and Security Professionals in general.
Attendees willing to perform the hands-on exercises are expected to bring a laptop with VirtualBox already installed. The minimum requirements for the laptop are: Intel Core Duo, 1.66 GHz. 4GB of RAM. Ethernet and WI-FI network interface cards.

Security systems are evolving and becoming more complex, so are the hacking techniques. Every successful hack penetrating network infrastructure has to evade through multiple layers of security in a perfect sequence. Imagine yourself in an environment with diverse operating systems, servers and applications with legacy as well as in-house developed products and security solutions such as firewall, AV etc. How do you plan to go ahead and pwn them all? Learn to exploit and compromise targets where Metasploit will not work by default. Perform a wide array of tricks to discover, enumerate and pwn services, systems, domain controllers. Move around in an enterprise network with VLAN hopping to pwn some more. Analyze and exploit enterprise software components such as JBoss, MQ, CI/CD, Domain Controller, Database servers, Network Devices etc.

Everyone has heard about hackers. It is commonly known that their jobs differ from system administrator jobs. However, things they do in their darkened rooms are definitely interesting and worth knowing. Many of the techniques they use are very useful in everyday administration tasks. Is it that easy to get into systems? What about Windows 10 – are all of these security features preventing all of the attacks possible before? Well no! And we need to know how to implement features properly in order to be on a safe side! Windows 10 is designed to protect against known and emerging security threats across the spectrum of attack vectors but this can be achieved only when configuring these settings properly! A Hackers' knowledge is considered to be valuable, both by system creators and common users. Administrators do not have to be taught how to be a hacker; it is often enough to show them one simple, but very interesting tool or technique, to change the point of view on their own IT environment. Topics covered in this seminar help you to walk in hacker's shoes and evaluate your network from their point of view. Be careful – this workshop is designed for IT and Security professionals who want to take their skills and knowledge to the next level. After this workshop, you will be familiar with hacker techniques, which can be useful to protect yourself against. This is a three days training with demos and reasonable and smart explanations.

This training will focus on all major aspects of the Windows post-exploitation process: breaking restricted environments, subverting operating system controls, privilege escalation (logic/configuration/permission/software bugs), bypassing User Account Control (UAC) and persistence. The training will be beneficial to attackers and defenders alike. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of common pitfalls when configuring the Windows estate. They will see what tools the attacker has at his disposal, how to live-off-the-land and where to achieve long-term residence when access has been acquired. All sections of the training are accompanied by intense hands-on labs where students will put the theory into practice. The training will simulate real-world environments allowing attendees to later directly apply the content in the field! A detailed understanding of Windows is not required to attend the training, however a basic familiarity with the windows command line (cmd/PowerShell), the Sysinternals Suite and certain concepts such as schedule tasks, services and UAC will be greatly beneficial.

This course was given by first time in Hack in Paris 2013. Now, we revisit the same topic with updated material and in an updated environment. First, we show the basic concepts of Reverse Code Engineering (RCE), also by practicing some small executables. The aim is to provide enough background to the students to understand how the methodology of RCE is performed. Then, the course covers anti-RCE techniques. This second part aims at showing common techniques used in software to protect from RCE, commenting (from O.S. perspective) each technique in detail, as well as developing small proof-of-concepts (PoCs) for each technique. The goal of PoCs is to show the students how the generated assembly code is and the difficulty () of bypassing each one of these techniques. We will discuss how (almost) all techniques can be easily circumvented, as well as the particular advantages/disadvantages of each technique, providing also insights about the future of software protection. The anti-RCE techniques were released to the public in https://github.com/ricardojrdez/anti-analysis-tricks

You can, quite reasonably, expect smart locks and access control systems to be free from alarming security vulnerabilities - such a common issue for an average IoT device. Well, this training will prove you wrong. After performing multiple hands-on exercises with a dozen of real devices and various technologies, you will never look at the devices the same way.
During this course students will perform: wireless sniffing, spoofing, cloning, replay, DoS, authentication and command-injection attacks. Practical exercises will include investigating proprietary network protocols, demystifying and breaking "military grade encryption", abusing excessive services, intercepting wireless remote controls, brute-forcing PINs via voice calls and attacking building automation systems. The offensive exercises will teach you how to analyze the devices' security, and the best practices guidelines will help to design them properly.
The software activities will be mixed with short entertaining tricks, including opening a lock by a strong magnet, counterfeiting fingerprints in a biometric sensor or opening voice-controlled lock by remotely hacking speaker-enabled devices. Several tasks will be associated with electromagnetic lock guarding a special vault. Whenever a student will succeed in hacking the lock, the box opens automatically, and one can have hidden reward.
Covering lots of various topics and technologies (including NFC, Bluetooth Smart, Linux embedded, Wiegand, WiFi, P2P, SDR, GSM, KNX, ...) guarantees that regardless if you are a beginner or a skilled pentester, you will learn something new and have a good time. The training includes a hardware pack (over 100 EUR value) for each student, consisting of preconfigured Raspberry Pi, NFC board, RTL-SDR dongle and Bluetooth Low Energy sniffer. The hardware will introduce you to the world of RF analysis, allow you to crack and clone NFC cards, sniff and analyse Bluetooth Low Energy connections.

New generation malware and attacks have been targeting ICS and systems causing huge monetary and human life losses. ICS system still vulnerable in nature because it’s poorly understood. Penetration testing on ICS systems is a very niche field which requires in-depth knowledge and has a huge dependency in terms of the Hardware availability.
In this course, will concentrate on methodologies to conduct penetration testing of commercial Hardware devices such as PLCs as well as simulators and also provide an excellent opportunity for participants to have hands-on experience on Penetration Testing of these devices and systems. This course also focused on hardware analysis of the embedded system and fuzzing techniques over ICS protocol to identify 0-day vulnerabilities. The ICS setup will simulate the ICS infrastructure with real-time PLCs and SCADA application. In the end, of course, there will be ICS CTF and some GOODIES to give away for the winners
Throughout the course, we will use DRONA-ICS, a VM created by us specifically for ICS and IoT penetration testing. DRONA is the result of our R&D and has most of the required tools for ICS and IoT security analysis. We will also distribute DIVA – ICS, a vulnerable embedded sensor made in-house for hands-on exercises.
The “Practical Industrial Control System (ICS) Hacking” course is aimed at security professionals who want to enhance their skills and move to/specialize in ICS security. The course is structured for beginner to intermediate level attendees who do not have any experience in ICS, reversing or hardware.
And at the end ICS CTF Challenge.

Industrial Control Systems (in)security is making headlines on a regular basis recently. Why ? Are security experts crying wolf or do we have a real problem ? This training will help you understand the specificities of OT (Operational Technology) compared to IT. Using this knowledge, we will identify the most common vulnerabilities, and then exploit it on several hands-on lab systems, including real ICS software and real PLCs. We'll conclude this training with an engaging ICS Capture the Flag half-day !
All attendees will need to bring a laptop capable of running virtual machines (4GB of RAM is a minimum) Each attendee will be given a USB key with a custom Kali virtual machine, that includes the specific tools that we will use as well as the lab files (pcap, etc), and a Windows virtual machine with specific ICS software to perform the lab sessions
This training is aimed at security professional willing to deep dive into the Industrial Control Systems and have real-world, hands-on sessions. There is no specific requirement for attendees except a basic infosec culture.
All attendees will need to bring a laptop capable of running virtual machines (4GB of RAM is a minimum)
Module 1 : Introduction to ICS
For starters, we will introduce the concept of ICS. The topics will include:
A brief history of ICS
The CIM model
ICS components (PLCs, HMI, SCADA, DCS, sensors, RTUs, Historian, etc) and their roles
OT vs IT
Module 2 : Pentesting Basics & tools
This module will introduce the concept of penetration test. We will not spend too much time of the theoretical stuff (how to make a report, etc etc) since that is not what attendees are looking for. However, this module is required to ensure that everyone shares at least the basic concepts of penetration testing, in order to understand the rest of the training.
The module will include :
OSINT for ICS : Where to look to find informations
Reconnaissance : how to portscan & nessus
Exploitation : Metasploit basics
Toolz used : nmap, Nessus, Metasploit
Lab setup : Windows Servers and workstations, Metasploitable, Kali Linux
Module 3 : Windows basics and pentesting Windows
Unfortunately, any ICS now includes, at least in some areas, Windows systems. So some time must be spent on Windows basics. This module will introduce the following topics:
Windows Active Directory
How to find credentials on Windows systems
Exploiting and pivoting to gain Domain Admin privileges
A selection of hacking techniques will be applied on lab machines
Even if you are already knowledgeable about Windows and it’s security, I’m quite sure I can show you some new tricks :)
Module 4 : Common ICS vulnerabilities
This module will introduce the most common vulnerabilities found during ICS audits:
Lack of network segmentation / Exposure
Lack of hardening
ICS protocols insecurity
Module 5 : ICS protocols
This module will introduce the most common ICS protocols:
Attendees will analyze network captures and be introduced to software libraries/clients to use these protocols to talk to PLC simulators as well as real PLCs.
Module 6 : Introduction to safety for security pros
This module will introduce the required safety knowledge in order to understand the OT world. The different concepts of safety will be detailed, as well as the leading norms and hazard analysis. The differences with IT risk analysis will be mentioned and to finish, a basic case study will be performed.
Module 7 : Programming PLCs [HS]
In order to have a better understanding of how a PLC works, student will use dedicated software to program a PLC in ladder logic (using trial versions of TIA portal and/or soMachine basic). Students will then deploy the code to real PLCs.
Toolz used : TIA Portal / SoMachine Basic
Lab : Windows virtual machine and real PLCs from Schneider and Siemens
Module 8 : Pentesting ICS [HS]
This module will be composed mostly of lab sessions, in order to apply the knowledge learned during module 5:

Lab : Windows Servers and workstations, Kali Linux, Siemens and Schneider PLCs
Module 9 : Securing ICS [HS]
We all know it, all clients want to know what they can do to improve the security of their systems. This module will detail the technical and organizational solutions one may engage in to secure their ICS. This will include : system hardening, network segmentation, sharing data with IT systems, and security supervision.
The leading security standards will also be mentioned and briefly compared.
Toolz used : Windows virtual machine, IDS
Lab : Students will have to configure an IDS virtual machine and verify its efficiency, and write a new attack signature for an attack previously performed.
Module 10 : Case study PM
In this module, students will be given information and network diagrams about a case-study ICS. They will have to highlight the security weaknesses and come up with recommendations.
Module 11 : Capture The Flag [HS]
A good training must include “real-life” examples and labs. To go further individual labs that will occur, we will dedicate the last half-day of the training to a Capture The Flag event. To do so, I will have a specific setup where attendees will be able to use their newly-acquired knowledge on a simulation of a “real-life” system. This will include compromise of Windows host, pivoting to the ICS, understanding the industrial process, and finally capturing a real flag with a robot hand !
