Network reconnaissance is typically time-consuming, yet it is the most important step when performing a penetration test. The more you know about your target, the more likely it is that you will find the fastest and easiest path to success. The best practice is starting with reconnaissance methods that do not require you to interact with your target; however, you will need to make contact eventually. Upon making contact, you will need to identify any open ports on a target system as well as map out the environment to which it's connected. Once you breach a system, typically there are other networks that you can scan to gain deeper access to your target's network. We will cover breaching systems in Chapter 4, Raspberry Pi Attacks.

One huge advantage of the Raspberry Pi is its size and mobility. Typically, Kali Linux is used from an attack system outside a target's network; however, tools such as PWNIE Express and small systems that run Kali Linux, such as a Raspberry Pi, can...
