curious about peoples' thoughts on a kernel "exploitation" course

  while delivering courses over the years, i am asked on an occasional
basis if i can teach "a course that looks like this one." as in,
sometimes there's a vendor with just the course material desired, but
perhaps the price is out of reach, or it's in a distant city,
whatever. so someone will ask me if i can put together something
moderately equivalent ... sometimes yes, sometimes no.

  very recently, someone asked if i could teach some equivalent of


and, after looking at the outline (no other information was provided),
i said i would need more information from the client since, frankly,
i'm not quite sure what the theme of that course is.

  my first reaction was, "ok, kernel security, i can probably do
something like that", but looking closer, i can't really seem to
figure out the overall theme or flow of the topics as they're listed.

  also, the fact that it's listed specifically as an "exploitation"
course which vows to teach the student to write exploits and attack
makes me wonder who they're targeting.

  so far, i've just said i need more info as to what the potential
students plan on doing, or what their goals are and am waiting to hear
back. but i'm curious as to what others think of that outline. maybe
i'm misreading it, but it just doesn't seem to make logical sense.

  thoughts, anyone?
