What you’ll learn

  • Reconnaissance for Cybersecurity Research and Bug Bounty Hunting



  • To successfully complete the course, you need to have knowledge of computer networking, the penetration testing methodology, basics of cybersecurity, basic Linux skills, knowledge of Kali Linux/Parrot OS, knowledge of Python and Bash. If you are familiar with other very used modern programming and/or scripting languages, this is a plus. You are welcome to take the course even if you do not meet the criteria, provided that you can get yourself on track on-the-go.



Highly sought-after cybersecurity professionals are those able to demonstrate their skills immediately. Being practical weighs heavier than degrees/certifications because it all boils down to what you can do.

In this intermediate-level course, I am teaching you a very specific skill: recon in cybersecurity. You will be able to apply this skill in areas such as cybersecurity research, bug bounty hunting, and penetration testing.

The majority of course-materials you find online are tailored to beginners. This course is nothing like that. I don’t show you how to set up an environment or how to install tools.

Time is the most important resource we have. Therefore, I cut through all of the non-sense and show you how I use my knowledge, skills, mine and other people’s tools for security research and bug bounty hunting. You will learn:

  • about my personal bug bounty hunting methodology

  • why recon can open doors to multiple security threats

  • how to find and choose good private or public programs to hack on

I’ll also teach you:

  • about my manual and automated recon tactics

  • about the importance of coding in recon

  • subdomain discovery and bruteforcing

  • about bucket hunting, github recon and dorking

  • how to analyze JS files

  • and much more.

By the end of this course, you will be armed with powerful skills for your professional engagements.


Who this course is for

  • Cybersecurity enthusiasts who want to focus on recon for bug bounty hunting, security research and penetration testing.
  • Cybersecurity Professionals who seek reconnaissance skills.
  • Anyone who meets the requirements/prerequisite and wants to learn recon in cybersecurity.
