I keep seeing people on here saying Active Directory is their weakness or that they’re not very comfortable with AD. For me personally though, I’ve got quite a lot of experience with it from working as a Windows network admin for several years, then writing tools that report on AD objects and permissions.
So would there be much interest in me making a video explaining some fundamental AD concepts?
It wouldn’t really be a tutorial on how to attack AD. More of just a tutorial about how AD works in general so that you’ve got a good grasp of the fundamentals. Some example things I’d probably cover:
- LDAP queries
- How to structure AD object paths
- Commonly used LDAP attributes
- Group Policy (both AD and Sysvol sides)
- DC replication
- Kerberos authentication (just a brief summary)
This would take a fair amount of time for me to plan out and record, so yeah just trying to gauge the level of interest in something like this.
If you want to see whether I’m actually any good at explaining things in a video before deciding if you’d watch something like this, you can take a look at the two videos I’ve already done on one of the retired HTB boxes: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpoyhjwNIWZmsiKNKpsMAQQ
Oh and if there’s a particular AD related topic you’d like me to cover please mention it here.
