There’s nothing in the curriculum specifically about pen testing, but if you want to know about web pen testing and don’t know how websites are built, then you can learn that here first.

Start using Kali Linux and sniff out some Kali forums. You could also play around with hackthissite.org to get a feel for some of the methods and skills you’ll need. If I recall correctly, they focus on some basic, outdated stuff, but it could be a start to see how well suited you are to it.

You should also be reading security blogs like Krebs and Schneier.

I’ve never seen pentesterlab before. I should point out, I’m not a pro, these are just resources I’ve heard of :slight_smile:
