Hi everyone! I am a cybersecurity vulnerability researcher and penetration tester professionally and in my personal time, I do a lot of educational outreach. Specifically with high school and middle school students. I recently started a YouTube channel to support some of my lectures in an async manner. Figured some of this material also might be useful to share with the broader community. Please check it out and provide some feedback on the material and teaching style–I’m trying to improve these.

Welcome back, everyone! In today’s video, we continue our discussion of virtualization with a focus on application layer virtualization and specifically a discussion of how to set up Docker, one of the more common application virtualization tools. We start with some history and go through the setup, but the more interesting part of the video in my opinion is applying this concept to a real scenario. The final part of the video is taking this virtualization concept and applying it to a CTF problem: we talk about how to use docker for CTF problems, how to set up containers for CTF problems and ultimately how to challenge students or competitors with a lightweight, portable and easy to use containerization software.
