OSCP Prep

One of the ideas that spawned the conception of this website was detailing the methods taken to track progress towards the OSCP certification. Ideally, I'll update this page with insights and thoughts as I prepare for the test. This progress page will make the most sense to be broken down into 3 major parts, each serving their own purpose:

  • Practical Experience - vulnerable machines to practice techniques and learn tools with.

  • Study - external and 3rd party links that have been useful to supplement learning that occurred from the portion listed above.

  • References - helpful links that should be readily available when the certification begins.


Practical

This is where the rubber meets the road for me. I'll be using TJNull's list of machines to practice on from Hack the Box, Vulnhub, and TryHackMe and provide write-ups here for each of them. You can find the list here or you can review the matrix below:

Study

As with most studying for the OSCP, video walkthroughs from the likes of Ippsec can prove invaluable. In addition, TheCyberMentor and Tib3rius also have courses on Udemy that were extremely helpful in understanding topics more in depth.
