Metasploitable3: An open-source, on-demand vulnerable network

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are you looking to get into pentesting but don't have a vulnerable network handy to start poking holes in? Are you curious about all those hot pentesting tools you've read about but don't have a good place to try? Do you enjoy the challenge of a tricky CTF? Or are you just really into open-source security software and eager to learn about new offerings?

Metasploitable3 is a new version of the intentionally vulnerable virtual machine designed as a target for testing your hacking skills. It has been updated to include its own vulnerable virtual network with loads of services to start digging through. And the best part is that it is constantly evolving and new vulnerabilities are being added by the community regularly.

In this talk the creators of Metasploitable3 will discuss how to get started with building the network, showing off some of the vulnerabilities, and how to exploit them. Tips on how to make your own tweaks, and how to contribute those tweaks to the project, will also be covered. And there just might be some secrets to tracking down the hidden flags scattered throughout the filesystem...
