While studying for the Comptia Pentest+ I went back to do another room on the TryHackMe learning path for the Pentest+. In the below video, we reviewed and answered the Web Fundamentals room in TryHackMe. This room covered some of the basics of web sites: DNS, encryption (HTTP vs HTTPS), requests (GETs/Posts), responses, cookies, and had a mini CTF at the end.
Before watching the video, if you need a quick refresher on DNS, check out this video.
Below I’m going to share with you my answers when going through the knowledge checks in the different tasks in the room. Definitely try to work through the problems as much as you can. In this particular room, there are a few tasks that don’t require you to answer any questions, so those tasks are omitted from the screenshots below. Make sure to follow along in the video so you understand what you need to do to get the answers below.
Web Fundamentals Task 2 – How do we load websites?
Web Fundamentals Task 3 – More HTTP – Verbs and request formats
Web Fundamentals Task 5 – Mini CTF
Network Knowledge Wrap Up
