ChironCommercial CYBER CORE OPERATIONS (CCO)
This is an intense, hands-on course designed to take students through a wide variety of topics relevant to operationally-focused cyber missions within the offensive and defensive arenas. Students will receive highly technical and mission relevant training needed to significantly minimize the burden of on-the-job training required to immediately impact operations. This 4-week course focuses heavily on the TCP/IP stack, deep-packet analysis, network forensics, Windows and *NIX system operator fundamentals, malware triage and the post-compromise forensics of remote targets. Extensive analysis is conducted throughout each stage of the network attack methodology to include packet capturing and inspection, analyzing logs, deep dive examination of the compromised machine. During the last week students will learn how to build custom scripts to perform host surveys on a target system to help identify traces of compromise on the system. Skills learned during the week are evaluated each week on the final day with a hands-on culmination exercise, challenging the students to apply those skills and validate their knowledge.
