Linux Kernel Exploitation & Rootkits (LKXR)
Instructed by T. Roy
The goal of this course is to provide a good understanding of offensive and defensive software development in the Linux kernel and the knowledge to detect malicious activity in the kernel and defend against it. LKXR focuses on the skills of developing and detecting techniques used by Linux kernel mode rootkits at every stage of their execution. Students learn how to exploit kernel vulnerabilities, use and abuse kernel subsystems and programming interfaces to implement various stages of rootkits, and identify rootkits artifacts in modern 64-bit Linux systems. Students also learn about the security functionality and mitigations available in the latest Linux 5.x kernel.

I really enjoyed the course! It was interesting to see a different perspective on penetration testing and ways of progressing from recon to initial access to escalating privilege and lateral movement.
