If you are like me then most programming books and courses are nothing more than a cure for insomnia. You know you need to learn a programming language to be a better security person, but when you try to learn it – my god it is so boring, so frustrating, or even worse – everything you learn doesn’t apply to IT Security. I know you are tired just like I am of programming books teaching you how to write a program to keep track of your book collection, or how to write a stick figure hangman game.
A hang man game – really??? Gimme a break!
You know I love Python – if you are an IT Security guy or gal with very little programming experience than this class is for you. Python for IT Security Professionals is the perfect course to get you over the hump in your security career – stop being a script kiddie and learn to code from a guy that won’t put you to sleep doing it.
Here are the key points we’ll be covering:
- Programming Concepts, Parsing Files, Logs, and PCAPs
- Password Cracking, Netcat-like functionality, Port-Scanning, and fuzzing
- Web Application Vulnerability Testing
- Writing your own security tools
