So, there’s this penetration test laboratory which I received access when I attended the CEH course. You have access to a task list with the targets, each target has its own page providing the machine’s IP address, a tip not very helpful in most cases and the flag location. It’s similar to a few other sites around the web.
When I started, it had around 45 machines available with a few more going live while I was climbing the scoreboard. If I’m not mistaken there are 54 machines now. It was a journey for me to complete it with a lot of discoveries. Now I’m eager for new machines to be added there.
I took it as a preparation to the PWK/OSCP course which I intend to take. This whole lab took me around 60 days, the same time I was aiming for the Offensive Security course. Such a hands on experience gave me a lot to practice and learn, subjects to research and a handful of notes which I intend to use this blog to share.
