Sharpen your pentesting skill in a bootcamp About This Book Get practical demonstrations with in-depth explanations of complex security-related problems Familiarize yourself with the most common web vulnerabilities Get step-by-step guidance on managing testing results and reporting Who This Book Is For This book is for IT security enthusiasts and administrators who want to understand penetration testing quickly. What You Will Learn Perform different attacks such as MiTM, and bypassing SSL encryption 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 Recover lost files, investigate successful hacks, and discover hidden data Write organized and effective penetration testing reports In Detail Penetration Testing Bootcamp delivers practical, learning modules in manageable chunks. Each chapter is delivered in a day, and each day builds your competency in Penetration Testing. This book will begin by taking you through the basics and show you how to set up and maintain the C&C Server. You will also understand how to scan for vulnerabilities and Metasploit, learn how to setup connectivity to a C&C server and maintain that connectivity for your intelligence gathering as well as offsite processing. Using TCPDump filters, you will gain understanding of the sniffing and spoofing traffic. This book will also teach you the importance of clearing up the tracks you leave behind after the penetration test and will show you how to build a report from all the data obtained from the penetration test. In totality, this book will equip you with instructions through rigorous tasks, practical callouts, and assignments to reinforce your understanding of penetration testing. Style and approach This book is delivered in the form of a 10-day boot camp style book. The day-by-day approach will help you get to know everything about penetration testing, from the use of network reconnaissance tools, to the writing of custom zero-day buffer overflow exploits.
