Book Overview

Penetration testers simulate cyber attacks to find security weaknesses in networks, operating systems, and applications. Information security experts worldwide use penetration techniques to evaluate enterprise defenses.

In Penetration Testing, security expert, researcher, and trainer Georgia Weidman introduces you to the core skills and techniques that every pentester needs. Using a virtual machine-based lab that includes Kali Linux and vulnerable operating systems, you'll run through a series of practical lessons with tools like Wireshark, Nmap, and Burp Suite. As you follow along with the labs and launch attacks, you'll experience the key stages of an actual assessment--including information gathering, finding exploitable vulnerabilities, gaining access to systems, post exploitation, and more.

Learn how to:
-Crack passwords and wireless network keys with brute-forcing and wordlists
-Test web applications for vulnerabilities
-Use the Metasploit Framework to launch exploits and write your own Metasploit modules
-Automate social-engineering attacks
-Bypass antivirus software
-Turn access to one machine into total control of the enterprise in the post exploitation phase

You'll even explore writing your own exploits. Then it's on to mobile hacking--Weidman's particular area of research--with her tool, the Smartphone Pentest Framework.

With its collection of hands-on lessons that cover key tools and strategies, Penetration Testing is the introduction that every aspiring hacker needs.
