INTRODUCTION

This article does not go step-by-step on how to complete machines, instead focuses on the tools and techniques you should know to complete a Pro Lab.
I used the tools described here by myself when I was going through Dante Laboratories and I thought I would gather them in one place for others.

TIP 1 — METASPLOIT & CYBER KILL CHAIN IS YOUR FRIEND

  • During Dante Pro Lab you will face the scenario of the corporate network where you have to repeat Cyber Kill Chain steps on every compromised host to accomplish the whole laboratory.

  • Metasploit Framework is a great all-in-one tool that can be used to accomplish many tasks during the Pro Lab.
  • I described in detail how to use this tool in each phase of Penetration Testing in one of my articles here and suggest you read it first.

TIP 2 — DIG A TUNNEL THROUGH THE BASTION
