Heise’s webinar: Password hacking

On September 22, attendees will learn all about password attacks and how to prevent them.

Passwords are still the most commonly used type of authentication on software systems today. That’s why pentesters, like hackers, need to know how to crack passwords. This is exactly what interested admins learn in the Heise webinar “Password Hacking” from the series “Ethical Hacking for Admins”.

In the half-day online training, pentest expert Eric Amberg first explains how passwords are stored securely (both on Linux and Windows) and then why they can still usually be hacked. Using practical examples, he shows how the tools John the Ripper and Mimikatz work and how to read SAM databases and run golden ticket attacks. At the end of the webinar, he gives tips on how to protect yourself against password attacks.

In five webinars in September, IT security expert Eric Amberg accompanies participants on their journey from beginner to pentester. In the webinar series “Ethical Hacking for Admins” they learn, with many practical examples, everything about how to find security gaps in computer systems, plan attacks, execute them and finally gain important experience for the defense of those very systems. The appointments:

  • September 1st: Information gathering & pentesting basics
  • September 8: Shells & Backdoors
