Why study this course

The Offensive Security Proving Grounds (PG) are a modern network for practicing penetration testing skills on exploitable, real-world vectors. They’re based on the course labs featured in the pentesting course for the OSCP certification, Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PEN-200)

The labs simulate a complete enterprise network containing dozens of exploit points, ranging in difficulty from simple to sophisticated. They serve as a battleground for penetration testers and enterprise teams to practice, learn, and improve in a realistic environment. 

Your team members will develop and hone their penetration testing skills against situations and surfaces they would encounter on a real pentest, within the most robust enterprise network simulation available. 

In addition to in-network exploit points, use cases also include social engineering, phishing emails, man-in-the-middle attacks, social tools, and other common vulnerabilities present in today’s real-world networks. 

Proving Grounds Options: 


Proving Grounds Enterprise Edition is the most sophisticated simulated pentesting environment on the market. With infrastructure capacity capable of supporting up to 40 users, it’s 100% dedicated to your organisation. 

An assigned administrator from your organisation will have access to all lab walkthroughs. They can grant access to any number of users, so that you can accommodate new users, cross-functional teams, or other changes that may occur throughout the year. 


Proving Grounds Teams Edition is a perfect match for smaller organisations and teams. Hosted in a shared environment, it allows your organisation to invest in the most realistic simulated network environment while still operating on a flexible budget. Pricing is based on the number of users (minimum 5 users).

What you’ll learn

Great care has gone into creating a network of over forty machines with multiple operating systems. These are configured to represent a range of installations, from locked-down modern servers to classic configurations still found in networks everywhere. The systems deployment mirrors real-world situations, complete with network segmentation and IPS-protected “high security” zones. 

Real exploitations serve as the basis for all scenarios, ensuring the experience is as genuine as possible. Offensive Security’s industry experts develop and implement new exploits every quarter so that your teams can continue to develop their professional pentesting skills in a safe yet highly realistic corporate environment.
