Beginning Ethical Hacking with Kali Linux By Sanjib Sinha
Free PDF Book Download
Get started in white-hat ethical hacking using Kali Linux. This book starts by giving you an overview of security trends, where you will learn the OSI security architecture. This will form the foundation for the rest of Beginning Ethical Hacking with Kali Linux. With the theory out of the way, you’ll move on to an introduction to VirtualBox, networking, and common Linux commands, followed by the step-by-step procedure to build your web server and acquire the skill of being anonymous. When you have finished the examples in the first part of your book, you will have all you need to carry out safe and ethical hacking experiments.
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 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 SQL map, and applying brute force or password attacks. Besides learning these tools, you will see how to use OpenVas, Nikto, Vega, and Burp Suite.
