Cobalt Strike Trial


Cobalt Strike is a very powerful product, and does not have a license manager built in.  This means that if we send you a copy for a trial, then you could use the product indefinitely.  For this reason we offer trials in a virtual sandbox environment that is sealed.

Within that environment you will have a machine with Cobalt Strike on, plus some machines to target.

Accessing the environment

When you get access to your Cobalt Strike sandbox trail environment (hosted on Azure) you will be sent an IP address, user name and password. You can use any RDP client to connect to that IP address and login with the credentials provided.

Fortra have a site with a lot of information to support your trial.  You will find a walk-through guide plus a capture the flag challenge.  You will find information here: (note that at the time of writing this is a self signed certificate so you will get an error; this is a temporary solution).

Getting help during the trial

As part of the trial we also want you to try out the excellent Core Impact support. If you have a question, please email and put the member of the S4 team that you are working with on copy.
