Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) and Bishop Fox are conducting a live demonstration and hands-on workshop that will introduce you to the top three tools needed to get started in network penetration testing. We’ll cover how to scan for vulnerabilities with the Nmap scripting engine, create reverse and bind shells with Netcat, and scanning and exploiting a variety of network services with Metasploit.

By the end of the evening you will be port scanning, creating payloads, and popping shells. This technical workshop is meant to familiarize you with the tools needed to continue your journey into ethical hacking. Take your new skills to Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions or scan your home network for vulnerabilities.
