CS-UY 4773 Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Analysis

3 Credits
The course will start off with an in-depth review of the exploitation mitigations introduced in modern operating systems. The instructors will demonstrate their limitations through simple examples and gradually develop the basic exploitation techniques into more complicated methods applicable to real-world exploitation. Unlike most other exploitation courses, we will focus on approaching exploitation as a creative problem-solving process rather than an exercise of applying cookbook techniques to common types of vulnerabilities. Most of the course will focus on the hands-on application of the material through exercises and leading the students through the development of reliable exploits for recently patched vulnerabilities in widely used software.

Prerequisite(s): CS-UY 3933  (required for all students) and CS-UY 2134  (for Brooklyn Engineering Students) or CSCI-UA 201 (for CAS Students) or CS-AD 103 (for Abu Dhabi Students).
