About the training

The AWS Kill Chain course's first day is an intense hands-on experience. It demonstrates the best hacking techniques and tools to exploit common AWS misconfigurations. Things then escalate rapidly on the second day, as students are guided in the compromise of a production grade AWS infrastructure. This is a unique CTF-style challenge where exploitation of servers, containers and applications is the only way to get access to a set of AWS keys. Working out key permissions and exploiting the AWS infrastructure will be the real challenge.

AWSKC is a hands-on course for penetration testers wanting to deep dive into AWS hacking. The course is laser focused on AWS configuration vulnerability patterns to maximize impact. Students will be introduced to AWS native tools, Cloudformation, AWS CLI and API to help penetration testers fully embrace AWS hacking. AWSKC is also a brutal introduction to the world of penetration testing for established AWS DevOps and architects who want to understand how their infrastructure is attacked and learn how to protect it.
