After an introduction to Kali Linux, you will carry out your first penetration tests with Python and code raw binary packets for use in those tests. You will learn how to find secret directories on a target system, use a TCP client in Python, and scan ports using NMAP. Along the way you will discover effective ways to collect important information, track email, and use important tools such as DMITRY and Maltego, as well as take a look at the five phases of penetration testing.
The coverage of vulnerability analysis includes sniffing and spoofing, why ARP poisoning is a threat, how SniffJoke prevents poisoning, how to analyze protocols with Wireshark, and using sniffing packets with Scapy. The next part of the book shows you detecting SQL injection vulnerabilities, using sqlmap, and applying brute force or password attacks. Besides learning these tools, you will see how to use OpenVas, Nikto, Vega, and Burp Suite.
The book will explain the information assurance model and the hacking framework Metasploit, taking you through important commands, exploit and payload basics. Moving on to hashes and passwords you will learn password testing and hacking techniques with John the Ripper and Rainbow. You will then dive into classic and modern encryption techniques where you will learn the conventional cryptosystem.
In the final chapter you will acquire the skill of exploiting remote Windows and Linux systems and you will learn how to own a target completely.
