Intro

Hi all!

My plan is that under 2022 to take OSCP and PNPT exam. To get the full picture we start from the beginning. Why do I post this? Share knowledge is the simple answer, and I am getting old so I need to document everything I do. I think this is a good way to do it. And I do not want to wait 1 year to share my stuff. So my plan is that I do updates know and then when something happens. Think if I do not pass any of the exam, so what. The sun will come up tomorrow anyway, I hope!

The outcome of somethings can change, I write as I go. But after a journey like this, things can change.

And I hope I get in contact with someone that are in the same boat as me. Create a team on Try Hack Me or Hack The Box? I am open to almost anything! πŸ™‚

I have a ordinary day job that not always include in security stuff, so a lot of evenings and nights are behind what I am today.

I could create 2 post one for each exam path, sure. I do not want to “compare” who has the best product, but for me it is just that the goal here is to pass them both in the same time frame and also get some tips and tricks out there if someone plan to choose one of these exams.

OSCPhttps://www.offensive-security.com/pre-reg/

This is the first course that I have taken from Offensive Security, and I hope not the last. Support for the course is done thru Discord. Any troubles with labs in PEN-200 and exam can be done thru https://chat.offensive-security.com/. I did put in some questions in discord, sometimes the community answer fast sometimes not so fast. I am a person that like to do things in order, but in this case if you are stuck on a questions. Put in a questions in Discord and move one. You can do that question later.

PNPThttps://certifications.tcm-sec.com/pnpt/

I have done TCM courses before he opened his own academy. But my plan is to go thru them again. There are some new stuff like OSINT and Pentest playbook.

Also between everything else, I listen to a lot of security podocast. So I want to fill my life with security to get in 100% in this. Eat, Drink, Sleep, Shit Security!
Some of my podcast that I listen to.

PEN-100

Because I did buy 1 year of subscription I also got access to this.
This is Linux / Windows / Networking fundamentals education with labs. If you know Linux / Windows before this will be an easy one, but it is always good with repetition. So I will go thru that first.

After a couple of weeks into pen-100 I read something on the discord that everybody schould know.

From discord

—START—
Thanks for reaching out, I know that trying to solve something that you don’t know how to solve yet can be frustrating. Let me preface this with saying that there may indeed be material that we can clarify or add to make some of the exercises more evident, and to the extent that we need to do so we will – we use the rate of submission on questions to help us determine what new content we need to add, where to add hints and where to make wording less ambiguous – so we greatly appreciate your
That all said, let’s dive into the question a little bit. Part of the purpose of the PEN-100 material is to quickly become more comfortable with the “I dont know what to do next” feeling. As you elegantly point out, shooting an azimuth is hard and its frustrating not knowing what to do. Unfortunately (of fortunately depending on your perspective) security (and especially offensive/red/attacking security) is, in our view always an exercise in uncertainty. There will always be something that you don’t know, because if there weren’t then security would be easy and there’d be no need for pentesters in the first place! (This is a bit of a straw man and I can delve deeper into what I mean here if you wish.) For now I just want to make the points that a) dealing with uncertainty is a necessity, and b) making it easier or at least more palatable is part of the point of PEN-100 in particular and 100 level content in general.

—END—

Timeschedule

I think the hours have been calculated if you are a beginner.
So total time in this PEN-100 is 151 hours or 8 hours per day in 19 days.

Update 2022-03-10

Add more 10 hours for the new chapter nr 17 Proxy!

Really nice course, some parts for me was hard and some part was easy. The coding part was for me really hard, because I suck at coding. But I learned alot and I can recommend this to everyone.

Exam thoughts

No exam for this course

WEB-100

I have been waiting to do this one. But some chapters are the same as in PEN-100, so you will get some for “free”.
Do not think the course really holds the level I want. But I also understand that it is difficult to teach this as a web fundamental course. Since 40-50% was already ready when you had done PEN-100 was probably less good. Since I’m a noob at this, one would like explanations of things. But that’s probably the thing, find out for yourself. Try Harder πŸ™‚

Timeschedule

So total time in this WEB-100 is 81 hours or 8 hours per day in 8 days. But as I said before some chapters are the same as PEN-100. So if you have done PEN-100 before then you “only” have 28,5 hours.

Almost Finished WEB-100 2022-03-04

I really thoght that this part would be better. But as I write more about this further down I will says this. This is hard and it will be easier if you have coding experince. Some of the questions are “stupid” and so is the answer. Sometimes, it will not take the correct answer (bug). It will get frustrated, but just move on. I will do the few questions left in this part soon. But knowledge is knowledge. Just go thru with it and take notes.

Exam thoughts

No exam for this course

SOC-100

Same as WEB-100 some chapters are the same as in PEN-100, so you will get some for “free”. Below is the different Chapters. And it is alot of reading in this course!

Timeschedule

So total time in this WEB-100 is 141,4 hours or 8 hours per day in 17 days. But as I said before some chapters are the same as PEN-100. So if you have done PEN-100 before then you “only” 37,5 hours to burn infront of a screen.

This was alot of reading, a lot. The information in this course was very extensive. I would love to be able to download this and use it as a reference. I learned alot in this course, how shall we implement a real SOC from beginning to end. Really nice, even if it has really nothing to do with PEN-200 (OSCP). But knowledge is easy to have on our schoulder. πŸ™‚

Exam thoughts

No exam for this course

PEN-103

This course is free to do. Below is the different Chapters. This will be alot of reading in this course also. There is no question to answer here. But if you are new to Kali Linux this is a realy good beginners guide to Kali Linux. Lets dig in!
Even if I have used Linux as workstation for many years there is new information in this course for everyone I think. The bad thing here is that I can not download and print out, you need to access this online and read it. You can also get the book and print this out.
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kali-Linux-Revealed-2021-edition.pdf

Timeschedule

I do not have a timeline in this course. First there is no approx time schedule in the course and second I have not finnished it yet. So I will put in the hours here when I am done.

PEN-210

Now on to some wireless hacking. I really do not know if this can be applied in 2022, but either way it is good to know history before the future (newer technology). This course is really technical and have text and Video. It is higly recommended to have a Kali laptop and try the stuff that are in the course. It make me learn faster anyway. Below is the different chapters in the course. This course can not be downloaded and read offline. So I did copy and past in to joplin, so I can read it offline, this will take around 6 hours to do that at least for me it did. No I am not allowed to share that, do not even ask πŸ™‚

PEN-200

To get this certification is one of the goals in 2022. This course is the last step in my journey this time. The exam for this course is 24 hours, so you need to get prepaired for this. In the course there is a alot of information to get in shape for this. Read it!

I also plan to get physical in parallell with this course. Do some PDF/Video and hacking some machines. I can not wait. πŸ™‚

Here is the answers to all you questions regarding labs and exam and everything else you need to know!

General

If you have the money, sign up for TryHackme and HackTheBox
Of you don’t have the money, do not sign up for these do the free stuff on these plattforms.

The plan for learning this can be explained in words. Read, Listen, Exercises, Labs and Finally exam. This picture is taken from the Offensive Security site. But I will apply this in any test that I will take.

Create your own pentest machine that you will operate from. So you get in the right mod when doing the stuff. Then you will know where the tools are and how they are configured. I use a virtual machine so I can take backups on regular basis.

You can download the content 1 time and one time only. That was decided from Offensive Security, before there was no download at all.

There are 3 parts in this course, Reading, Video and Labs.

I did not find any time schedule in this course but here is the different topics.

LETS BEGIN THIS JOURNEY

We start with the setup.

Using Kali as the main machine (vm).

What do I take notes with = Using Joplin
https://joplinapp.org/

What am I using for pentesting management platform = Reconmap
https://reconmap.org/

Set it up:
https://blogg.invid.eu/2021/12/09/open-source-vulnerability-assessment-and-pentesting-management-platform-reconmap-pentesting-opensource-hacking-opensource-cybersecurity/

Why?

Because I want to, and it is free.

2021-12-30

I registered at Offensive Security Site for 1 year off PEN-200 access. The price at the moment was 1999$ for 1 year.

2021-12-30

Received confirmation of payment

2021-12-30

I also registered for the PNTP exam. The price for that at the moment was 399$. It was really easy to register here and get account.

2022-01-02

Because of holiday I waited 2 days to receive below email. To verify my identity.

2021-01-02

The start of this blogg post and some rest. I will begin the hard work on 2021-01-03

2021-01-03

We start the day with videos from TCM. And at the same time I got email from Offensive Security to access my stuff.

Received email from Offensive Security that I can now start my education!

Because I bought the 1 year PEN-200 I also did get PEN-100, WEB-100 and SOC-100

This was a long day almost went thru Practical Ethical Hacking – The Complete Course…Only OWASP left.

I have done this course before, so some chapter I could skip. But still it was 15 hour day. Normal this takes more than 25 hours.

2022-01-04

Today I also joined the Offensive Security Discord channel. Went thru the https://help.offensive-security.com/ pages to see what I needed to know regarding the OSCP Labs and exam.

But also completed the Practical Ethical Hacking – The Complete Course!

2022-01-05

Today I went thru the Windows Privilege Escalation for Beginners. I did not do the labs. I have done this courses before when these were on udemy.

2022-01-06

Today I went thru the Linux Privilege Escalation for Beginners. I did not do the labs. I have done this courses before when these were on udemy. I also stared the OSINT course, this one was new for me! It is time for some wine now peace out!

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) Fundamentals

2022-01-07

I think I will start with an hangover…..but we will see…. πŸ™‚

Today was a “small” day” only 30% of the osint course, Back to the beers!

2022-01-08

Free today. Party time! Just some OSINT in the bottle.

2022-01-09

Corona time in the family, so now it is lockdown. But did some hours in the OSINT course.

2022-01-10

Finished the OSINT course and started the External Pentest playbook from TCM-SEC.

2022-01-11

Today it is time to do the Network Threat Hunting Training from ACTIVE COUNTERMEASURES, 6 hours long.

2022-01-12

Today I finished The PNPT training bundle. This is really good and is fair with the price. TCM-Security as done a really good job with the platform. Resume the course when your PC hangs. Simple login tog the plattform. I have done the three first courses before, but it is always good with repetition.

After TCM-Security is finished now it’s off to Offensive security courses. Since I bought 1 year with Offensive Security, I also get access to the PEN-100 WEB-100 SOC-100. So why not start with them?

I know that I need to schedule the PNPT exam….But lets go thru the Offensive Security courses first.

2022-01-13

It was a couple of hours PEN-100 only. Had a long day at work.

2022-01-14

Today it was all PEN-100 for 2 hours. As I said before Covid in family……SUCK!

2022-01-15

Mental preparation….Free today

2022-01-16

6 hours of PEN-100 today. Did the Linux and first part of Windows. Even if you are heavy user of Linux and Windows you will learn something new, I promise.

2022-01-17

Need to put the PEN-100 aside for a couple of days. Something Santa brought this weekend from TCM Security was that you can get 7 day free trial on All-Access Pass. So I did sign up on that and started with Movement, Pivoting and Persistence. In this course you will see C2 like covenant, Metasploit, Phishing, Privilege Escalation and Password Spraying and a lot of more stuff. The first part of this course is about setting your own lab up and running. Great content from TCM Security and The Mayor! I did the course , but no labs. As I said before I will do the practical later.

After this it is time for some Python 101. I hope I will have time to do Python 101 and Python 201 during this week. But I will come back on that.

2022-01-18

I am so bad at this. Even 26 years in IT I was never a programmer and never will be. I feel like I am a newbie, and I am. Fuck Fuck Fuck…..36% of the course only. It is gonna be a long week! If I would do my childhood all over again I would start programming when I was 10.

2022-01-19

To much work today only 30 min of python today. Did also 2 1 hour webinars. One webinar was from Wild West Hackin’ Fest and going thru BurpSuite here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZrqGaEJ740 Little tired, I hope for more energy tomorrow!

2022-01-20 -2022-01-23

Python Python 101 are finally finished! It has been a pain in the as this one. I am and never will be a coder, that is a fact! But this course did help me understand the basics and how much I admire coders. This course is 5,5 hours but it took me 9,5 hours to get thru! The teacher in this course was Riley Kidd also know as @247CTF

2022-01-24

Back to Offensive Security. Even if this is fundamental stuff it is a reminder that you can forget and you do not know everything.

2022-01-25

Work all Day and evening, then a webcast from @RedSiege. The best about these webcast from USA is the time difference….You can work all day and the webcast starts at 20.00 or 21.00.

2022-01-26

Today is was also alot of work, but I did manage to attend a Webinar today A master class om Offensive MSBuilld with Chris Truncer & Joe Leon. I also did 2 hours of PEN-100, Windows processes, Libaries and Registry. You can think it is basic, but a alot of stuff here you never always do. So it is a god course with labs.

2022-01-27

2 Hours of PEN-100 today finishing of Windows stuff. No off to networking stuff. I like the labs I learn faster when I can use my keyboard. I really long to complete these trainings theoretically so I can start with the real hands on labs.

2022-01-28

Finally I got use of my old CNE certification and Novell Netware course “Networking Technologies”. You can still find books about this
https://www.amazon.com/Networking-Technologies-Complete-McGraw-Hill-Communications/dp/0079123120

OSI is the shit!

Almost all done at the Networking stuff:

2022-01-29 and 2022-01-30

This weekend I did not have to many hours behind the computer, but I manage to get thru most of scripting module. Powershell I hope I finnish on Monday!

2022-01-31

No hacking today private shit

2022-02-01

2022-02-14

Worst day in my path…python coding. 4,5 hours pure hell. I need to turn back the time 20 years and start coding. And still after 4,5 hour not done. This is gonna end bad.

2022-02-15

Today I FINALLY got thru the Networking Script part of PEN-100, and I must admit…I used BurpSuite for some exersices. I must go thru the hard school of coding. But I do not see the time for it right now. Solve the problem ahead coding or not. 6 hours with this. I am gonna dream of python tonight

Today it was also a 2 hour CTF challange from https://www.activecountermeasures.com/

I got 265 points of 265 points. I was not first, but I was not last either. πŸ™‚

2022-02-16

Today was a webinar called “How Certifications Help You Find Great People for Your Security Team” from Wild West Hackin’ Fest. You can watch this on youtube if you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgTh7JsxqxY

And I also did 4 hours of PEN-100 and almost finnished chapter 12 only 1 question left, yes you where right, pyhton coding…..my god. So I jumped over that question and did all other and the spent more time on the python script.

2022-02-17

Hi all, today I was home late from work so today no hacking, but I was able to attend a webinar from BlackHills. After watching that I decided to shutdown my computer(s) for today.

After a weekend off free time of computer I did the troubleshooting,nmap and 30% of the cryptography. These chapters was more my cup of tea! I can see the light in the tunnel! 6 hours…..

2022-02-22

Today i went thru the Cryptography module of PEN-100. Realy nice chapter.
If you have done HTB or Tryhackme this chapter would not take 11 hours. But for a first timer it will take this time. This is not easy to understand if you have not seen this before.

2022-02-23

Work all day and evening, sorry my hacker heart! But still I had time to go to the webinar WWHF | So, You Want to Build a Community in InfoSec  ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFK_BxeOpDE )

2022-02-24

Not so much of PEN-100 today but some hours. Web Applications is really fun. I really enjoy this part. I am really impressive by people that are coding and creating web application. You really need to think about security everywhere.

I also did a webinar from Blackhills How to Detect and Repsond to Business Email. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOGZRpju5B0

2022-02-25

Beer time…

2022-02-26

No computer today. I hope I have the power to do anything on Sunday!

2022-02-27

YEEEEAAAA, The PEN-100 course is done. The Web Application part was really fun. Active Directory part was really a beginners level. But not everyone has Active Directory knowledge.

Now time to jump in the WEB-100 there are some cross chapters from PEN-100 so I already have done some of the WEB-100

2022-02-28

Today was a fun day, loved this chapter with Web Attacker Methodogy. If I have the time I will also do the https://portswigger.net/web-security course and I do not think it is a bad thing when taking this journey. I also manage to do chapter 7 today. As I use to say, not a bad day today!

2022-03-01

This chapter was hard, a big remminder that scripting knowledge is important. I manage to do around 50% of this chapter today. 2 hours of work is better than 0. Need to sleep and empty regex strings out of my head!

2022-03-02

Long day at work and some ordinary work when I came home, but I did manage to enter a webinar from Active Countermeasures (Malware of The Day). Nice stuff as always.

I also manage to do some questions in the section Input Validation. But yeah I know I am not a coder, but some questions are stupid, or I am. I have not made up my mind yet.
ex. Microsoft Word and Excel files (.docx and .xlsx) are examples of what file format?

2022-03-03

Hard day today (in my world at least regarding my path). These chapters was hard for me.

But I did manage to do most of the question. I have some questions left that I will solve soon I think. As I said before coding is my achilles heel. But as I normally say, you need to learn how to crawl before running.

2022-03-04

Got really tired of myself today, I am bad at coding javascript. Javascript is eating my head! So I will go head and start the SOC-100 instead. It is the same with this course. Did you do the PEN-100 more than 50% is already done!

I manage to go thru 1, 5 chapter on this. If you compare PEN-100 or WEB-100 this is alot more reading to do. I like more hands on. But knowledge is knowledge!

2022-03-05

Beer time!

2022-03-06

Mental healthday!

2022-03-07

Did a few chapters on SOC-100 today so only 2 chapters left! Windows logging and vuln tracking left.

2022-03-08

Finishing SOC-100 puhhhh. In SOC-100 you learn to read English text. It is alot to read and go thru. Sure it was alot of reading, but you will learn alot in this course!

Also did some reading of PEN-103 course, the first 5 chapters.

2022-03-09

Today I started on PEN-103 and the first thing I did was to copy and past the material to Joplin so I can read it offline. So not so much hands on in security today. But I did 4 hour of Azure Workshop and 1 hour of webinar with Wild West Hackin Cast Side Channel Attack: Influencing Causality via Exploitation of the Choice Vendor | Ed Miro ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ais6mNDH5Lk )

Offensive Security also updated the courses today 2 more chapter to do!

2022-03-10

Today it was a webinar with VMware vExpert and the content was Security EDR, NDR, NSX and much more. VMware has a great portfolio in the security space if you choose to go that way! Carbon Black is really nice. I did some updates in the documentation in Joplin for the Offensive Security journey!

I could not sleep so I did the new PEN-100 chapter 17 Proxy! Nice chapter, not so advanced. But as always everything is easy if you know it!

2022-03-10 Proxy

2022-03-11

Today it was alot of “ordinary” work so I only did the new chapter in SOC-100 “Snort” . I little tired today. Sleep and take on the hacking tomorrow!

2022-03-12

Beer time and Melodifestivalen. You can google that!

2022-03-13

Day off! No computer

2022-03-14

4 hours of going thru WEB-100, and documenting stuff from that course.

2022-03-15

Today I did a couple of hours in PEN-103, as I said before alot of reading.
And I started also a new course (not normal) but this was really nice, even if it not in my ballpark. I started GRC Analys Master Class
A Cybersecurity Primer
Compliance and Audit Work
Security Awareness Work
Cybersecurity Risk Work
Information Security Governance Work
Getting a GRC Analyst Job

I also did an 1 hour webinar from Active Countermeasures @ActiveCmeasures
https://www.activecountermeasures.com/events/month/

R.I.T.A. (Real Intelligence Threat Analytics) is an open-source framework for detecting command and control communication through network traffic analysis. But how exactly does RITA work? How is RITA able to find beacons and account for jitter?

2022-03-16

Today it was a webinar from WWHF | Hackin’ Cast | It’s Groundhog Day Again – The Cybersecurity Loop | Stephen Spence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMjqWOc_k-M

Did also finnsihed the GRC Analys Master Class course also.

Today I did make a decision to start the PEN-200 course. So we say goodbye to PEN-100,SOC-100, SOC-100, PEN-103 and PEN-203 for now. I has been almost 200 hours with alot of reading and get in the mood for PEN-200. But now the the real stuff begins. I have now almost 9 month left for study for the PNPT and PEN-200 exam! I hope this will be enough.

I will start to go thru the video. Then then the PDF with the labs. So I manage to do 3 chapters of video today only 22 left!

2022-03-29

No hacking today, needed to attend my homelab today. Setting up gophish and some other web services.

2022-03-30

Today It was workagain, and no hacking. But I manage to attend 2 webinars today.
One from Wild West Hackin cast: It’s Always Something: Creating a Strategic Vulnerability Response Plan with Joe Pierini, Daniel Brown, and Patrick

Finally got started again! Did 5 hours of training PEN-200. So I manage to get thru below chapters of videos. Next chapter after this day is Buffer Overflows. I can not wait. πŸ™‚

2022-04-15

Basic knowledge of Buffer Overflow chapter is done. Here we went thru how,why a application can be abused by an attacker. Also intriduction to step by steb to abuse an application with ImmunityDebuger. The PEN-200 course is good, but this is hard if you never worked with this before. There are easier way to learn this, for example The Cyber Mentor free stuff on youtube!

If you will go for the lab report and get the extra 10 points. Read the the infromation from Offesive Security.
Some sentences you need to know and understand:

To be performed on your own Kali and Windows 10 lab client machines – Reporting is not required for these exercises

To be performed with the Topic Exercises VMs under “Resources” – Reporting is not required for these exercises

2022-08-07

Big day today! I have one week left of my vaccation. So I planned to do the OSWP exam today. πŸ™‚

So the report for the exam is now in the cyberspace (Offensive-Security) and I hope I will retreive an answer in 10 working days.

If I manage to pass I will write a post what to think about and what I struggled with.

2022-08-08

Really fast, Offensive-Security says that it take up to 10 days to get the result. But I got it today. I am pleased to say that I passed! OSWP is done!

2022-08-09 – 2022-08-14

Last week of vaccation no computer.

2022-08-15

Today 6 hours of Offensive Security CLD-100. Great cource if you new to Docker and Kubernetes. The cource name is Cloud Security Foundation and is includen in my 1 yesr subscriotion on PEN-200.

2022-08-16

Today it was only 1,5 hour with Practical Malware Analysis & Triage. The I needed to work in the evning. Strange the goal was to do OSCP but when I read thru this I do anything else but that. That need to change!

2022-08-19

Nice, today I finished Practical Malware Analysis & Triage and even wrote a report that was a last task in that course. This course was great. And I do not want to have this undon. I learned alot! Great work @TCMSecurity and @HuskyHacksMK for this!

2022-08-20

2022-08-21

Today TCM-Security release another traning for a couple dollars. Nice! So now I ended up spending 10 hours on this Sunday with web apps! Web application security and testing!

2022-08-22

Today I finished the Practical Web Application Security and Testing. Really great course to get into pen testing of web application. Recommend this and it is cheap.

2022-08-23

After Practical Web Application Security and Testing there is a capstone (final task). Do a web penetrationtest and send in the report and get that graded by the course teacher @mttaggart. 4 hours on the pentest and report writning.

2022-08-24

Got some tips and tricks on the report that I needed to modify! Just waitning for @mtaggart for the final words.1 hour today on the report and template. I do not love reporting πŸ™‚

2022-08-25

Report writning today also, spend a couple of hours trying to please @mtaggart πŸ™‚ . His course is amazing. And the effort he putting in this are out of this world..

Also did 4 hours of PEN-LIVE and PNPT-LIVE

And 1 hour of Cyber Deception from Active Countermeasures! Great Stuff!

2022-08-26

Report writing for Mr. @mttaggart that is the teacher in Practical Web Application Security and Testing course. 1 hours on reporting.

2022-08-27

4 hours of report writing. This needs to be perfect for the customer. It is important part of vulnerability assessment or penetration test. Tips is to get report from the web and read them. Find a good one or combine different reports and find your structure. This is hard and it is easier if you can talk so someone that is good at this and you can ask question or send him/she your report for grading.

2022-08-28

50% of this book today. Really nice to have in your arsenal of tools. Can recommend this highly.
I always thought in this line of work RTFM meant Read The Fucking Manual but in this case it is Red Team Field Manual

I would love to have this in PDF or any digital format. But as always. Better to create one for your self and have this as reference. Go and get a copy for your self.

Today it was time to get into PEN-200 again. Need to hurry this up. I think I am about 6-8 weeks behind my schedule. I thought I was having Aug-Dec to do the labs. But no no….What takes time is the reporting of the exercise. I can just do the flag stuff, but I think I learn more if I do the report and solve all the questions. I did manage to put in 5 hours in the course today. Stuck at web application attacks!

2022-09-06

7 hours of PEN-200. Finnsihed the Web part and started with Buffer Overflow. This I think gonna take some time. There is a lot of text to go thru. I would recommend other sites to learn Basic Buffer Overflow also. In the text part of PEN-200 it can be to much information, so nice to see someone talking about it.

I feel like I am 1,5 month behind my schedule. I think it is gonna be hard to pass OSCP in December. To little time. But we will see, Never Give Up can take you far on your journey.

Today it is gonna be some vendor stuff. Need to take a cert for the company.

Vendor exam, FAILED…. You have to fail to succeed.

  1. Wow this is some mission you are on with all these certs is a particular order! Hopefully you attain the OSCP eventually.

    I’m currently working through the PWK labs. Started studying in January. My path was:

    3 months THM – Beginner, Web & Offensive Paths
    3 months PG – Worked through all TJ Nulls boxes on Proving Grounds Practice
    3 months PWK – Where I currently am in the middle of it.

    Exam in September probably.
