I am super excited to share with all of you that today, I released my 40th Pluralsight course. The topic of the course is Impact with Slowloris.
This course is about Red-Tool Engagement. If you are not familiar with Red Team Engagement it is actually ethical hacking with necessary authorization from the organization on whom this is performed. The primary reason for the engagement is to check the risk and mitigate it before anyone else finds it.
In this course, we focus on DDoS attacks. A Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack is an attack meant to shut down a computer, machine, or network, making it inaccessible to its legit users. A DDoS attack occurs when multiple systems orchestrate a synchronized DoS attack to a single target machine.
Impact with Slowloris
Knowing how to use Slowloris and how Denial of Service techniques can be used against you, will ultimately lead your organization to detect and defend against specific attacks. In this course, Impact with Slowloris, you’ll learn how to utilize Slowloris to execute impact in a red team environment. First, you’ll discuss this tool, the legal aspects, and the outcome you can expect from the engagement. Next, you’ll learn about the installation and environmental setup of Slowloris. Finally, you’ll simulate a Denial of Service attack. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to execute these techniques Denial of Service attack using Slowloris.
I hope you find these Learning paths helpful. If you have a Pluralsight subscription, you can watch it for free. If you do not have a Pluralsight subscription, you can still watch the course for FREE by signing up for a trial account. Please note that you do not need any credit card.
