This vendor-independent workshop provides you

The Corelan “BOOTCAMP” is a truly unique opportunity to learn both basic & advanced techniques from an experienced exploit developer, at a conference. During this (typically 3 ‘long’ day) course, students will be able to learn all ins and outs about writing reliable exploits for the Windows platform. The trainer will share his “notes from the field” and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits.

We believe it is important to start the course by explaining the basics of stack buffer overflows and exploit writing, but this is most certainly not “your average” entry level course. In fact, this is a true bootcamp and one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 stack based exploit development.

This hardcore hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of current x86 (stack based) exploitation techniques and memory protection bypass techniques. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current techniques, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn this class into a truly unique experience.

The new 2019 edition of the course is 100% based on Windows 10.

During all of our courses, we don’t just focus on techniques and mechanics, but we also want to make sure you understand why a given technique is used, why something works and why something doesn’t work.

We believe those are just a few arguments that makes this training stand out between other exploit development training offerings. We encourage you to check our testimonials page if you want to see real, voluntary, unmodified and uncensored reactions by some of our students.

Finally, we offer you post-training support as well. If you have taken the course and you still have questions afterwards, we will help.

WARNING: We do not provide solutions for any of the exercises in this course, but we will help you to find the solutions yourself, either during the course of after the course (via the student-only forum)

During the course, students will get the opportunity to work on real vulnerabilities in real applications and use exploitation techniques that work on default installation of Operating Systems (Windows 10).

Make no mistake. Although this course will explain the basics of exploit development, students will need to be able to transition to more complex theory and exercises quickly. The course has a steep learning curve and will require your full attention and focus.

The “Course Contents” on this page is subject to change without prior notice & can be updated between the moment of registration and the actual course. We will try to cover as much as we can from the “Course Contents”, based on the overall ability to absorb knowledge and time needed to complete the exercises, but Corelan Consulting cannot ever guarantee that we will be able to cover everything.

Knowledge & Attitude Prerequisites
Students should

  • be able to read simple C code and simple scripts
  • be familiar with writing basic scripts using python/ruby/…
  • be ready to dive into a debugger and read asm for hours and hours and hours
  • be ready to think out of the box and have a strong desire to learn
  • be fluent with managing Windows / Linux operating system and with using vmware workstation/virtualbox
  • be familiar with using Metasploit

No prior knowledge of assembly is required, but it will certainly help if you have some basic knowledge.

(In case you’re wondering: if you took OSCP/OSCE, and understood the exploitation part of the courses, then you are probably ready for the course)

Technical Prerequisites

Unless specified otherwise, students are required to bring the following:

  • A laptop (no netbook) with vmware workstation/virtualbox and enough processing power and RAM (we recommend 4Gb of RAM) to run up to 2 virtual machines at the same time. The use of a 64bit processor and a 64bit operating system on the laptop will make the exercises more realistic.
  • 2 Virtual machines installed (Windows 10 (or Windows 7 SP1) no pathes), Kali Linux (fully up-to-date))

Note : you will receive the exact installation instructions after registration, about a week before class begins, so don’t start installling the VMs yet.

All required tools and applications will be provided during the training or will be downloaded from the internet during the training.

You must have full administrator access to all machines. You must be able to install and remove software, and you must be able to disable and/or remove firewall/antivirus/… when necessary.

Legal Prerequisites
It will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement at the start of the course. You will not be admitted to the course without signing this document. You can find a copy of the document here.

About the Trainer
Peter Van Eeckhoutte is the founder of Corelan Team and the author of the well-known tutorials on Win32 Exploit Development Training, available at https://www.corelan.be. The team gathers a group of IT Security enthusiasts and researchers from around the world, who all share common interests: doing research, gather & share knowledge, and perform responsible/coordination disclosure. Above all, the team is well known for their ethics and their dedication to helping other people in the community. Together with the team, he has developed and published numerous tools that will assist pentesters and exploit developers, and published whitepapers/video’s on a wide range of IT Security related topics (pentesting tools, (malware) reverse engineering, etc).

You can find some of the tools on the Corelan github page: https://github.com/corelan

The team also moderates a Slack workplace (with various channels) that provides a platform for people who want to talk about exploit development or discuss wider IT Security topics. Follow us on Twitter (@corelanconsult) and Facebook (corelanconsulting) to get a Slack invite.

Peter is reachable on Twitter via @corelanc0d3r

Peter has been an active member of the IT Security community since 2000 and has been working on exploit development since 2006. He presented at various international security conferences (Athcon, Hack In Paris, DerbyCon, ISSA Belgium) and taught various Win32 Exploit Development courses at numerous places around the globe. He trained security enthusiasts & professionals from private companies, government agencies and military organizations.
