The remaining two exams for this year are the OSCE and CCNA. The OSCE is the next course of the OffSec group after the OSCP. I must say, I am dying to take this course. I know it can take me to that next stage of offensive security such as evading anti-virus, attacking web applications, buffer overflows with staged exploits and writing in assembly language. It will be a painfully exciting time I am sure. Finally, I will take the CCNA exam. I have put this off for years now. I just want to get it out of the way to be honest. I am just having a hard time getting my hands on either the Cisco IOSs' or the Cisco hardware. The hardware would cost more than the exam. I tried to go the cheaper route by using the cisco emulator GNS3. Of course, you need to be able to get a copy of the IOS. FAIL. I do not have access to the IOSs' yet. Legally anyway. I will end up just buying the hardware. If you see late night flashes of light and power surges going in your neighborhood, it is probably because I live near you. I have seen some good deals on ebay and ciscokits.com. Oh, before I forget, I am also practicing programming in python. It seems to be great when you want to do network programming. I am just using homework assignments from computer science courses on the Internet to practice. It seems to be working. I will post as I go along. Good Night...
