Mooseboost boosting to the OSCP
This post has been a long time coming. I have been kicking around the idea of the OSCP for over a year now with promises of myself that I will get to it "soon" but always find a reason to put it off. The time is now here! Registration complete, payment submitted, and start date set for December 16th, 2017! I feel like a kid during Christmas (ironic that my start date isn't too far from Christmas) who knows that is in the big box under the tree. I already know some areas where I am going to need to focus particular with *nix and scripting. My background has had some level of programming but nothing consistent, although I think that being a jack-of-all trades will play into my favor. I've touched just about every aspect of IT over the years with a heavy emphasis on network and security engineering. My primary focus is trying to dive into scripting as much as I can before my start date. I want to be able to at least automate some of my enumeration process in the beginning. I intend to regularly update this post once the labs get started to keep a track of where I am.
