Description

 

Passwords have become the top authentication factor in today’s world. You use it in combination with an email or username to sign into almost any service. Big Corporations like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook still widely use passwords as an authentication mechanism today. But how secure are passwords?

This course focuses on the practical attacks that malicious users use to crack passwords, how you can use this attack in a penetration test, and how you can prevent them. We will very briefly cover the basics of cryptography, hashing and entropy and then immediately go on to crack different types of passwords using different methodologies.
