I just listened to an IT Instructor on YouTube who has taken the 601 test . To answer some of the questions, you will need experience in these exploits. You will need to read Logs, know the difference between the exploits and identify what exploit is used. Will ITPro.TV provide any Lab Training? The 601 is based on know-how instead of memorization.
Security+ 601 - A Different Comptia Exam
I just noticed you have courses on Hacking. There are resources on this website to learn in depth the different objectives in 601. Maybe you could just direct us to the resources so we can practice.
Looks like the 601 course will be ready by late December. You can still take the 501 exam until July 31, 2021. I'm taking it on Dec 11.
I am retaking mine in February for the 501 and the network+.
With the CompTIA Security+ exam. The requirement are listed in their exam objectives of which you can get directly if you register with CompTIA certifications.
- The ability to read logs
- Differentiate between exploits
- identify what exploit is used.
These are skills that you probably can do without diving into a full on course on Network Security Monitoring. Let me give you an example:
The ability to read logs: Can you identify what a log entry includes and looks like on a system. For example... event viewer in Windows 10, or even syslog messages in Ubuntu?
Differentiate between exploits: What is the difference between a trojan and cross-site-scripting? These require you to have a working definition of both and possibly an example of both.
*Identify what exploit is used: Given a scenario, a machine no longer allows you to do a virus scan or change certain security settings? Could you identify this type of exploit?
Thought the current Cisco 200-201 is still in production and hoping to finish this coming production week. If you want some examples, you can browse into the legacy section of our library and and see the course I made for the last iteration of the CCNA CyberOps. This may help provide additional examples for you....but it's not necessarily required at the Security+ knowledge level.
Let me know if I can help!
