Attacking Active Directory 2018 Workshop

Attacking Active Directory 2018 Workshop

This hands-on workshop teaches you how to both attack and defend Active Directory. We will start by deploying an Active Directory environment using the typical security settings found in most medium to large organizations. Participants will then learn current common methods and tools used to exploit Active Directory against a lab environment. Participants will create a hardened Active Directory environment using advanced methods to secure domain controllers from attack and then try to compromise their hardened environments.

Prerequisites: Some basic background in Active Directory

Materials: Need a laptop running a hypervisor that would support the import and running of multiple prebuilt virtual images.

Max students: 66
