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.

"The Metasploit Framework makes discovering, exploiting, and sharing vulnerabilities quick and relatively painless. But while Metasploit is used by security professionals everywhere, documentation is lacking and the tool can be hard to grasp for first-time users. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide fills this gap by teaching you how to harness the Framework, use its many features, and interact with the vibrant community of Metasploit contributors. The authors begin by building a foundation for penetration testing and establishing a fundamental methodology. From there, they explain the Framework's conventions, interfaces, and module system, as they show you how to assess networks with Metasploit by launching simulated attacks. Having mastered the essentials, you'll move on to advanced penetration testing techniques, including network reconnaissance and enumeration, client-side attacks, devastating wireless attacks, and targeted social engineering attacks. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide willteach you how to: Find and exploit unmaintained, misconfigured, and unpatched systems Perform reconnaissance and find valuable information about your target Bypass anti-virus technologies and circumvent security controls Integrate Nmap, NeXpose, and Nessus with Metasploit to automate discovery Use the Meterpreter shell to launch further attacks from inside the network Harness standalone Metasploit utilities, third-party tools, and plug-ins Learn how to write your own Meterpreter post exploitation modules and scripts You'll even touch on exploit discovery for zero-day research, write a fuzzer, port existing exploits into the Framework, and learn how to cover your tracks. Whether your goal is to make your own networks more secure or to put someone else's to the test, Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide will take you there and beyond"--
