Battleground Offerings

k>fivefour Battleground scenarios create a highly-realistic training environment where you can test your skills against real-world threats.


Designed specifically for Red Team Apprentice Course graduates, this scenario challenges you to pivot throughout the Campgrounds domain to discover and generate effects against a “hardened host” which contains trade secrets about an upcoming Campsite location.

Students will learn new tunneling techniques, compromising insecure file servers, and more in this challenging virtual scenario.


Our hardest scenario to date! In Gameplanet, students must evaluate a large, sprawling enterprise network to determine if potential adversaries could gain access to their intellectual property. But watch out! As you complete this scenario, you may realize there are other “actors” at play.

We recommend students complete the Red Team Journeyman Course before attempting this advanced scenario.


A smaller company with an even smaller digital footprint, the Linklight scenario challenges you to evaluate their DMZ implementation and ensure it is properly isolated from their corporate assets.

Students who choose to complete this scenario will encounter a world of new Linux systems, SQL servers, remote code execution exploits, and more!
