Companies pay penetration testers to hack into their cyber defenses and find security holes before malicious attackers get the chance. In Penetration Testing, security researcher and trainer Georgia Weidman provides readers with a survey of important skills for any aspiring pentester. This beginner-friendly book opens with some basics of programming and helps readers navigate Kali Linux, an operating system that comes preloaded with useful computer security tools like Wireshark and Metasploit. Readers learn about gathering information on a target, social engineering, capturing network traffic, analyzing vulnerabilities, developing exploits, and more. Hands-on examples discuss even advanced topics like mobile device security and bypassing anti-virus software.
