This Lab we are going to create is not only for Hacking and Penetration Testing. A Lab within a computer reduce electricity usage and has many more benefits. Even you can create it within your personal Laptop. If it would be on a laptop, it is portable and you can carry everywhere with yourself. The time is gone when the hardware of a computer was weak and just could run an operating system with a few software. So you can run multiple virtual operating systems OS separately at the same time.

One of the benefits of using Azure for application testing and deployment is that you can quickly get environments created. Quickly creating environments is great — but you still need to make sure you perform your normal security due diligence. One of the things you likely want to do is penetration test the applications you deploy in Azure. As of June 15, , Microsoft no longer requires pre-approval to conduct a penetration test against Azure resources. This process is only related to Microsoft Azure, and not applicable to any other Microsoft Cloud Service. While notifying Microsoft of pen testing activities is no longer required customers must still comply with the Microsoft Cloud Unified Penetration Testing Rules of Engagement. This test includes initiating a DoS attack itself, or performing related tests that might determine, demonstrate, or simulate any type of DoS attack.
As a penetration tester it is important to have a controlled environment in which to hone your skills and test new techniques. Testing on systems you do not own is illegal, even if it is just harmless curiosity. In this article I will show you how to build a virtual penetration testing lab using VirtualBox, Kali Linux, and Ubuntu. In this lab you can test, and hack away without worrying about the men in black showing up at your door. In addition, with a virtual network you can clone and snapshot instances with just a few clicks and easily create new pre-configured hosts.
