It examines the use of cyber capabilities against target networks, based on a methodology of cyber reconnaissance of network defenses and vulnerabilities, analysis of viable options for exploitations, preparation and delivery of cyber effects, and post-delivery impact assessment. Students will gain experience using the latest tools and techniques for penetration-testing against target networks.
