Terms and conditions apply.
Getting Started in the Lab Environment
Here are the initial instructions and explanation of the lab environment. Read this while your environment is busy creating itself from nothing. Yes, this violates physics; we know. How fun!
Tunneling your C2 Communication
In this challenge you will explore how to setup a C2 communications channel over https using the PoshC2 framework.
Using Non-Standard Ports for C2 Communication
As you solidify your skills on establishing command and control, in this challenge you will work with Empire. This time you will leverage a non-standard port to establish a C2 channel.
