CYB 601 National University SSL Split and Kali Linux Paper
Team Project Report
Project Goal: Each team will demonstrate the use of Kali (Linux) in the Infosec Learning virtual lab environment.
- Research the variety of tools available on the Kali Linux distribution for testing. Each team will select a set of tools to research, evaluate and test. Each team member must conduct the testing in their assigned set of VMs and compare the results with their teammates.
- Notify the instructor (via email) of the selected tool(s) prior to starting for review and approval
- Be prepared to address these questions in your written report and presentation:
- Why test?
- Why did your team select the specific testing tools you used for your project?
- Research and find one alternative to Kali Linux and compare and contrast the two distributions.
(NOTE: A possible resource for information is the MSCYB Toolset Resource-Reference Guide found in Course Resources | Course Documents folder.)
- Each team member has a cyber sandbox that contains the following VMs (the assigned IP addresses will be different):
- Using the assigned VMs, each team member will setup and configure their Kali VM to run tests against the target VMs in their respective environments (OWASP, Windows, Metasploitbale etc) using the selected tool. Team members should be able to identify and inventory the specific set of VMs that will be used in the test (e.g., IP address and OS). Students may choose which tests to run using the selected software tool(s), all of which must be documented in the written report (use the template provided for your written report).
- Team members should compare the outcomes of each test with their own prior test results and those of the other team members.
- Important: The virtual machines are non-persistent (data will be lost when the VM is shutdown), make sure you capture screenshots when you conduct testing.
