Student Requirements

The only requirement for this class is that you must bring your own laptop and have admin/root access on it. During the class, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-art hacklab which is hosted in our datacenter in UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab. So, you don't need to bring any VMs with you. All you need is admin access to install the VPN client and once connected, you are good to go!
