What you’ll learn

BotNet BootCamp – Types, Architectures, Attacks, and Defense

  • Discuss what a BotNet is.

  • Discuss the components that make up a BotNet

  • Understand how BotNets work and infect clients, IoT, and other devices

  • Understand how to detect BotNets

  • How to build a Botnet for your Virtual Lab


  • Be curious about computers and technology

  • Have a working knowledge of computers and smartphones

  • Be interested in learning about security threats and how they are made

  • Know a little bit about networks, clients, and analysis


In recent years, the international order from Ukraine to the United States has been seriously impacted by botnets, the remotely controlled networks of computers with nefarious intentions. The virus, ransomware, and disruptive services offered by various botnets have a variety of unique consequences and characteristics.

Therefore, strengthening the defenses against them is crucial. To more or less successfully combat botnets, one should examine their code, communication, kill chain, and other technological characteristics. However, the Business Model for Information Security asserts that in addition to technical characteristics, their skills and behavior also have a human and organizational component.

This course aims to describe the elements of various attacks and give a framework for analyzing botnets’ technical and human characteristics. The comparison concentrated on the following factors: motivation, the used business model, cooperation readiness, capabilities, and attack source. Due to the dynamic behavior of cyberspace and botnets, it is difficult for defending organizations to achieve the target level of protection capabilities with a one-time development. According to the BMIS paradigm, this framework combines human and technological characteristics, giving the defender a uniform classification system.

This is a beginner’s course aimed at explaining what BotNets are, and how they are built and operated. It also discusses how BotNets attack and have avoided detection in the past by Anti Virus solutions.

After the course you will be able to:

  1. Explain what a BotNet is
  2. Explain and describe the components and architecture of BotNets
  3. Explain the ecosystem of BotNets
  4. Explain BaaS (BotNet as a Service)
  5. Explain different types of BotNets
  6. Explain the difference between SocialBots and “normal” BotNets
  7. Discover infected clients that are part of a BotNet
  8. Understand different types of attacks that BotNets can do

This course is meant to give any student that takes it critical knowledge and skills to understand the unique threats that BotNets pose to an entity.

Who this course is for:

  • People interested or involved in IT Security or Cyber Security
  • People Interested in IT Forensics and Cyber Espionage, War and Crime attack tools
  • People interested in understanding Botnets and other security threats when using the Internet or any computer
  • Red, Blue, and Rainbow Team Members that want some more hands-on experience with Botnets, Detection, and Analysis
