    Maybe in the future. I have to renew my VCP and I want to get the CISSP this year.

    Congrats!

    Do you have any lessons learned or advice that you wish you knew prior to taking on the venture?
  • MrAgentMrAgent Posts: 1,305Member ■■■■■■■□□□
    As far as lessons learned. All I can really say is try harder. I couldn't quite grasp the idea before the challenge, but I certainly can after passing.
    I guess just be prepared to do a lot of research. Nothing is going to be handed to you, as was my case with "sufference". I am an avid Linux user, so using Kali wasn't a big deal to me. The more of Linux you know, the better off you will be.

    Congratulations on passing the OSCP! OSCE next?
  • MrAgentMrAgent Posts: 1,305Member ■■■■■■■□□□
    Maybe next year. I did enjoy the buffer overflow section of the course. I was able to understand it and make sense of it all.

    Thanks. No I didn't give up, I only tried harder. :)

    What kind of programming skills is required to pass this exam?

  • BlackBeretBlackBeret Posts: 684Member ■■■■■□□□□□
    Be able to edit existing exploits, cross compile for different OS's, troubleshoot (google) error codes, repeat until the exploit works. Really the minimum is taught in the course, but I spent a lot of time searching error codes to clean up code and get it to compile.
  • MrAgentMrAgent Posts: 1,305Member ■■■■■■■□□□
    Even that is beyond the scope of the class. I don't come from a programming background, but I can script when needed. You just need to be able to modify code to suit your situation.

    Its really not that bad.

    Congratulations!! Outside of the OSCP material, what precursory material do you feel helped the most?
  • MrAgentMrAgent Posts: 1,305Member ■■■■■■■□□□
    I kept the hackers playbook handy, and I learned from the buffer overflow section of Penetration Testing by Georgia Weidman.
    On a side note... someone is trying to brute force my blog. Tsk tsk.
