Today's threats are organized, professionally-run, and very much for-profit. Advanced Penetration Testing?goes beyond Kali Linux and Metasploit and to provide you advanced pen testing for high security networks. This book integrates social engineering, programming, and vulnerability exploits into a multidisciplinary approach for targeting and compromising high security environments. From discovering and creating attack vectors, and moving unseen through a target enterprise, to establishing command and exfiltrating data—even from organizations without a direct Internet connection—this guide contains the crucial techniques that provide a more accurate picture of your system's defense. Custom coding examples use VBA, Windows Scripting Host, C, Java, JavaScript, Flash, and more, with coverage of standard library applications and the use of scanning tools to bypass common defensive measures.

The “Walled Garden”: The Kwangmyong Intranet

Comparatively little is known about the North Korean Intranet. It's an IP-based network that links various sites together within the country, such as universities and governmental organizations. Access is free to North Korean citizens (assuming they can afford the equipment to access it), for whom it intends to provide all the news and information they need (or rather to restrict them to what the government wants them to see, depending on your perspective). Based on the information available, the intranet conforms to internal IP addressing, albeit inconsistently. Several different IP formats are in use, as can be seen in this list of hosts known to exist:
