Overview of this book

Penetration testing is a practice of testing a computer system, network, or web application to find weaknesses in security that an attacker can exploit. Effective Python Penetration Testing will help you utilize your Python scripting skills to safeguard your networks from cyberattacks. We will begin by providing you with an overview of Python scripting and penetration testing. You will learn to analyze network traffic by writing Scapy scripts and will see how to fingerprint web applications with Python libraries such as ProxMon and Spynner. Moving on, you will find out how to write basic attack scripts, and will develop debugging and reverse engineering skills with Python libraries. Toward the end of the book, you will discover how to utilize cryptography toolkits in Python and how to automate Python tools and libraries.

Preface

peepdf


peepdf is a Python tool that analyzes PDF files to find out if the file is harmful or not. The goal of peepdf is to equip all the required components that a penetration tester needs in a PDF analysis. peepdf helps us to see all the objects in the document and shows the suspicious elements. It also supports the most commonly used filters and encodings. It can also parse different versions of a PDF file, object streams, and encrypted files. It also helps to create, modify, and obfuscate PDF files.
