Security with Go

By: John Daniel Leon

Overview of this book

Go is becoming more and more popular as a language for security experts. Its wide use in server and cloud environments, its speed and ease of use, and its evident capabilities for data analysis, have made it a prime choice for developers who need to think about security. Security with Go is the first Golang security book, and it is useful for both blue team and red team applications. With this book, you will learn how to write secure software, monitor your systems, secure your data, attack systems, and extract information. Defensive topics include cryptography, forensics, packet capturing, and building secure web applications. Offensive topics include brute force, port scanning, packet injection, web scraping, social engineering, and post exploitation techniques.

Using the goquery package for web scraping

The goquery package is not part of the standard library, but is available on GitHub. It is intended to work similar to jQuery—a popular JavaScript framework for interacting with the HTML DOM. As demonstrated in the previous sections, trying to search with string matching and regular expressions is both tedious and complicated. The goquery package makes it much easier to work with HTML content and search for specific elements. The reason I suggest this package is because it is modelled after the very popular jQuery framework that many people are already familiar with.

You can get the goquery package with the go get command:

go get
