Short workshop pentesting (Nessus/Metasploit) - how to build the lab?
Posted on 2013-12-04
For a small IT Service Management team I want to organize a small, hands-on workshop of 1 hour to teach the basics of scanning for vulnerabilities with Nessus and exploiting vulnerabilities, preferably with Metasploit.
I'm looking for a particularly vulnerable version of Linux to include in the testlab. I've heard about Damn Vulnerable Linux, but then again I also heard that it is more tailored towards web application security.
