Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Preparation Guide by Ahmed SheikhKnow the basic principles of ethical hacking. This book is designed to provide you with the knowledge, tactics, and tools needed to prepare for the Certified Ethical Hacker(CEH) exam--a qualification that tests the cybersecurity professional's baseline knowledge of security threats, risks, and countermeasures through lectures and hands-on labs. You will review the organized certified hacking mechanism along with: stealthy network re-con; passive traffic detection; privilege escalation, vulnerability recognition, remote access, spoofing; impersonation, brute force threats, and cross-site scripting. The book covers policies for penetration testing and requirements for documentation. This book uses a unique "lesson" format with objectives and instruction to succinctly review each major topic, including: footprinting and reconnaissance and scanning networks, system hacking, sniffers and social engineering, session hijacking, Trojans and backdoor viruses and worms, hacking webservers, SQL injection, buffer overflow, evading IDS, firewalls, and honeypots, and much more. What You Will learn Understand the concepts associated with Footprinting Perform active and passive reconnaissance Identify enumeration countermeasures Be familiar with virus types, virus detection methods, and virus countermeasures Know the proper order of steps used to conduct a session hijacking attack Identify defensive strategies against SQL injection attacks Analyze internal and external network traffic using an intrusion detection system Who This Book Is For Security professionals looking to get this credential, including systems administrators, network administrators, security administrators, junior IT auditors/penetration testers, security specialists, security consultants, security engineers, and more
The Basics of Hacking and Penetration Testing by Patrick EngebretsonThe Basics of Hacking and Penetration Testing, Second Edition, serves as an introduction to the steps required to complete a penetration test or perform an ethical hack from beginning to end. The book teaches students how to properly utilize and interpret the results of the modern-day hacking tools required to complete a penetration test. It provides a simple and clean explanation of how to effectively utilize these tools, along with a four-step methodology for conducting a penetration test or hack, thus equipping students with the know-how required to jump start their careers and gain a better understanding of offensive security. Each chapter contains hands-on examples and exercises that are designed to teach learners how to interpret results and utilize those results in later phases. Tool coverage includes: Backtrack Linux, Google reconnaissance, MetaGooFil, dig, Nmap, Nessus, Metasploit, Fast Track Autopwn, Netcat, and Hacker Defender rootkit. This is complemented by PowerPoint slides for use in class. This book is an ideal resource for security consultants, beginning InfoSec professionals, and students. Each chapter contains hands-on examples and exercises that are designed to teach you how to interpret the results and utilize those results in later phases. Written by an author who works in the field as a Penetration Tester and who teaches Offensive Security, Penetration Testing, and Ethical Hacking, and Exploitation classes at Dakota State University. Utilizes the Kali Linux distribution and focuses on the seminal tools required to complete a penetration test.

Python Penetration Testing Essentials by Mohit RajThis book gives you the skills you need to use Python for penetration testing, with the help of detailed code examples. This book has been updated for Python 3.6.3 and Kali Linux 2018.1. Key Features Detect and avoid various attack types that put the privacy of a system at risk Leverage Python to build efficient code and eventually build a robust environment Learn about securing wireless applications and information gathering on a web server Book Description This book gives you the skills you need to use Python for penetration testing (pentesting), with the help of detailed code examples. We start by exploring the basics of networking with Python and then proceed to network hacking. Then, you will delve into exploring Python libraries to perform various types of pentesting and ethical hacking techniques. Next, we delve into hacking the application layer, where we start by gathering information from a website. We then move on to concepts related to website hacking--such as parameter tampering, DDoS, XSS, and SQL injection. By reading this book, you will learn different techniques and methodologies that will familiarize you with Python pentesting techniques, how to protect yourself, and how to create automated programs to find the admin console, SQL injection, and XSS attacks. What you will learn The basics of network pentesting including network scanning and sniffing Wireless, wired attacks, and building traps for attack and torrent detection Web server footprinting and web application attacks, including the XSS and SQL injection attack Wireless frames and how to obtain information such as SSID, BSSID, and the channel number from a wireless frame using a Python script The importance of web server signatures, email gathering, and why knowing the server signature is the first step in hacking Who this book is for If you are a Python programmer, a security researcher, or an ethical hacker and are interested in penetration testing with the help of Python, then this book is for you. Even if you are new to the field of ethical hacking, this book can help you find the vulnerabilities in your system so that you are ready to tackle any kind of attack or intrusion.
