Hello list!

I'm doing a physical pentest of the blackbox network security device
and need your help in it :).

I'm assuming that you can't open the box... if F2 doesn't work, you
can try DEL or some other special keys- not all BIOS uses F2... you
can also try facerolling the keyboard. By that, I mean just mashing as
many keys at once repeatedly while it's POSTing. You may either annoy
it enough that it does something new, it it thinks there is a keyboard
error and will halt.

Prove to peers and potential employers without a doubt that you can actually do a proper penetration test. IACRB CPT 
and CEPT certs require a full practical examination in order to become certified.
