Why purchase?

SSH tunneling is a skill you can use for the rest of your IT career. SSH tunneling and port redirection are skills that can be applied in any information technology discipline, so it does not matter if you are a network engineer, red teamer, penetration tester, developer or something in between. That being said, the examples tend to skew towards pairing tunneling techniques with penetration testing tools.

Lab Description

Four jump boxes provide the Internet facing portion of the lab. However, the fun really starts when you start leveraging tunneling techniques to reach the internal side of the network to access services such as Secure SHell (SSH), Web, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). The Linux and Windows targets are also running vulnerable services that can be exploited for the true tunneling ninjas. Each of the exercises has a brief description and solution to assist you in the event you get stuck.


The interactive lab portion requires a Linux-based host or virtual machine (preferably Kali), Internet access, a basic grasp of networking and Information Technology fundamentals, and Linux commands. The use of a Windows Operating System to access the lab has not been tested. Immediately after purchasing this, you will receive an SSH private key via email and instructions on how to access the lab. Your lab time starts immediately after purchasing, so plan accordingly!
