Ready to start Pentesting w/ Backtrack?
Hi all! I currently hold A+ and Security+, and will sit for both CCNA exams before the end of February. I am extremely interested in security. Last semester professor of mine suggested I look at doing CEH next, but that doesn't seem to have a ton of fans around here. I was looking at the Offensive Security website, and it seems like their OSCP prep course, Pentesting with Backtrack, offers alot of really interesting content. I'm familiar with Python and Bash scripting, but by no means an expert in either, and have played around with Backtrack a bit in my spare time. I don't want to get in over my head, but I would really like a challenge. Does this seem like a reasonable objective for someone at my skill level? Or is there something else I should be looking at first? Any and all input is much appreciated.
