Scanit is holding an ethical hacking course from September 4-8 2005 at Knowledge Village in Dubai in a bid to encourage regional network professionals to use the black arts of hacking to make their companies safer.

The course is intended for network and system engineers that want to learn how to assess the security of their IT infrastructure and IT consultants who want to learn to perform in-depth security assessments.

Scanit stresses that the course is not intended for misguided individuals who intend to use tools and techniques for criminal purposes.

The course will cover a variety of topics including breaking into Microsoft Windows NT and 2000, Sun Solaris, RedHat Linux, FreeBSD, a firewall and a Cisco router.

The course will comprise practical sessions, with the students trying out the tools and techniques on lab machines.

Each student will get a CD with all the tools that were used during the labs. Both Windows-based and Unix-based attack tools will be used.

As a prerequisite, students should have a reasonable understanding of TCP/IP, Unix and Windows 2000 and 2003.
