Industry Projects

Our projects are designed by experts in the industry to reflect industry standards. By working through our projects, Learners will gain a practical understanding of what they will take on at a larger-scale in the industry. In total, there are 2 Projects that are available in this program.

Setting Up Virtual Machine

This project requires extensive hands-on involvement. Learners will have to:

  • Setup 2 virtual machines (1 Kali Linux machine and 1 Windows Server 2012 machine) and find/print the local/private IP addresses of both the VMs.
  • Generate a “Windows Reverse TCP Shell” payload (shell.exe) using “msfVenom” payload generator on attacker machine.
  • Send the payload to target/victim machine (Windows Server 2012) using netcat (use port 7555).
  • Gain reverse shell access to the Windows server from the Kali attacker machine on port 4444. Using the cmd.exe reverse shell access of the victim machine that is now accessible from the Kali Linux terminal, find the list of user accounts available on the victim (Windows Server) machine.
  • Display the firewall status using cmd.exe shell access on the compromised victim machine

Installing BWAPP Web App on Local Machine

In this project, learners are required to: 

  • Install BWAPP web app on local machine and successfully exploit the given vulnerabilities like,
    • Cross-Site Scripting - Stored (Blog) – Include a script to pop-up an alert message that says, “Vulnerable to stored XSS!”
    • SQL Injection (GET/Search) – Exploit the SQLi vulnerability in the application using SQLMAP tool and list down the available databases.
    • Insecure DOR (Change Secret) – Create 2 users. Login as user A and try to change the password (secret) of user B.
    • Cross-Site Scripting - Reflected (User-Agent) – Inject malicious script and exploit Reflected XSS on the ‘user-agent’ request header. The malicious script should trigger an alert pop-up with number ‘0’
  • Install & run Metasploitable2 server on the Virtualbox. Print the IP Address of the Metasploitable2 machine after successful boot up. Use Nessus Community edition to scan the Metasploitable2 target and generate the vulnerability report for the same. Document the steps (with screenshots) involved in creating an unauthenticated scan profile. Attach the Final Executive Summary Report for vulnerabilities (PDF format)
