LPT (Master) Exam
The LPT (Master) is the world’s first fully online, remotely proctored LPT (Master) practical exam, which challenges the candidates through a grueling 18 hours of performance based, hands-on exam categorized into three practical exams for six-hour duration each, which will test your perseverance and focus by forcing you to outdo yourself with each new challenge. The exam requires the candidates to demonstrate a methodical approach to test and validate security defenses. The LPT (Master) exam is developed with close collaboration with SMEs and practitioners around the world after a thorough job role, job task, and skills-gap analysis.
Your pen testing skills will be challenged over three levels, each with three challenges, against a multi-layered network architecture with defense-in-depth controls. You will be required to make knowledgeable decisions under immense pressure at critical stages while selecting your approach and exploits.
As you progress along these levels, you will need to maneuver web application, network, and host penetration testing tools and tricks in an internal and external context to ultimately pwn the hosts and exfiltrate data required for the completion of the challenges.
The exam will require you to demonstrate mastery of deploying advanced pen testing techniques and tools including multi-level pivoting, OS vulnerabilities exploits, SSH tunnelling, host-based application exploits, privilege escalation, web server and web application exploitation such as arbitrary local and remote file upload, SQL injection and parameter manipulation, etc – all in a real life scenario on hardened machines, networks, and applications.
