Recon in Cybersecurity
What you'll learn
- Reconnaissance for Cybersecurity Research and Bug Bounty Hunting
- To successfully complete the course, you need to have knowledge of computer networking, the penetration testing methodology, basics of cybersecurity, basic Linux skills, knowledge of Kali Linux/Parrot OS, knowledge of Python and Bash. If you are familiar with other very used modern programming and/or scripting languages, this is a plus. You are welcome to take the course even if you do not meet the criteria, provided that you can get yourself on track on-the-go.
Highly sought-after cybersecurity professionals are those able to demonstrate their skills immediately. Being practical weighs heavier than degrees/certifications because it all boils down to what you can do.
In this intermediate-level course, I am teaching you a very specific skill: recon in cybersecurity. You will be able to apply this skill in areas such as cybersecurity research, bug bounty hunting, and penetration testing.
The majority of course-materials you find online are tailored to beginners. This course is nothing like that. I don't show you how to set up an environment or how to install tools.
Time is the most important resource we have. Therefore, I cut through all of the non-sense and show you how I use my knowledge, skills, mine and other people's tools for security research and bug bounty hunting. You will learn:
about my personal bug bounty hunting methodology
why recon can open doors to multiple security threats
how to find and choose good private or public programs to hack on
I'll also teach you:
about my manual and automated recon tactics
about the importance of coding in recon
subdomain discovery and bruteforcing
about bucket hunting, github recon and dorking
how to analyze JS files
and much more.
By the end of this course, you will be armed with powerful skills for your professional engagements.
Who this course is for:
- Cybersecurity enthusiasts who want to focus on recon for bug bounty hunting, security research and penetration testing.
- Cybersecurity Professionals who seek reconnaissance skills.
- Anyone who meets the requirements/prerequisite and wants to learn recon in cybersecurity.
I’m Cristi. I hold an MS in Civil Engineering and I work as a Cybersecurity Analyst. I've got my Offensive Certified Security Professional Certification a couple of months ago.
Machine learning and AI are currently on my high interests as well and I am looking to combine ML/AI with cybersecurity at some point in the future.
