In order to identify security vulnerabilities in networks, operating systems , and software, penetration testers simulate cyber attacks. To test organisational protections, information security specialists worldwide use penetration techniques.

In Penetration Testing, Georgia Weidman, security specialist, researcher, and teacher introduces you to the key skills and techniques that each pentester requires. You will run through a series of realistic lessons with tools like Wireshark, Nmap, and Burp Suite using a virtual machine-based lab that includes Kali Linux and vulnerable operating systems. You will experience the main stages of an actual evaluation as you follow along with the labs and launch attacks-like collecting information, discovering exploitable vulnerabilities, gaining access to networks, post-exploitation and more.

Check out how to:

  • Crack passwords and brute-forcing wireless network keys and wordlists
  • Test web apps for vulnerabilities
  • To launch exploits and write your own Metasploit modules, use the Metasploit framework to
  • Automatise assaults in social engineering
  • Antivirus Program Bypass
  • During the post-exploitation process, turn the access to one computer into complete company control

You'll also discover your own exploits in prose. Then it's on to mobile hacking with her platform, the Smartphone Pentest System-Weidman 's specific area of study.

Penetration Testing is the introduction that every aspiring hacker requires with its set of hands-on lessons which cover key tools and strategies.
