ABSTRACT
Students generally learn red teaming, sometimes called penetration testing or ethical hacking, as "breaking into your own system to see how hard it is to do so." Contrary to this simplistic view, a penetration test requires a detailed analysis of the threats and potential attackers in order to be most valuable. The author looks at penetration testing from the educational viewpoint.
