Book Description

With attacks on systems and networks evolving continuously, it has become more important than ever to pentest your environment to ensure advanced-level security. Ethical hackers can help improve the security of networks or systems by performing penetration tests to identify security vulnerabilities. Packed with concise and task-oriented recipes, this book will quickly get you started with Kali Linux (version 2018.4 / 2019), the most advanced and popular pentesting distribution, and take you through its core functionalities.

This ethical hacking book starts by helping you to install and configure Kali Linux. You’ll learn how to plan attack strategies and perform web application exploitation using tools such as Burp and JexBoss. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with using Metasploit, Sparta, and Wireshark for performing network exploitation. The book will also delve into the technique of carrying out wireless and password attacks using Patator, John the Ripper, and airoscript-ng, and then focus on a wide range of tools for forensic investigations and incident response mechanisms. In concluding chapters, you’ll learn to create an optimum pentest report that covers structured details of the pentesting engagement.

By the end of this book, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge you need to conduct advanced penetration testing and write detailed reports for patching vulnerabilities.
