As we mentioned earlier in this chapter, threat hunting platforms are used to gather cyber threat intelligence and generate threat analysis reports. One of the most popular platforms used is called Maltego. According to Kali tools, "Maltego's unique advantage is to determine the complexity and severity of single points of failure as well as trust relationships that exist currently within the scope of your infrastructure." Maltego uses a graphical interface to display information quickly and accurately. Using this platform makes it possible to detect hidden connections on a network. Maltego is considered a powerful and dynamic threat hunting platform allowing many customizable options. This allows Maltego to be adapted to many different network environments and configurations. This platform is built into Kali Linux and is a popular choice among pen testers practicing offensive...

Overview of this book
Computer networks are increasing at an exponential rate and the most challenging factor organisations are currently facing is network security. Breaching a network is not considered an ingenious effort anymore, so it is very important to gain expertise in securing your network. The book begins by showing you how to identify malicious network behaviour and improve your wireless security. We will teach you what network sniffing is, the various tools associated with it, and how to scan for vulnerable wireless networks. Then we’ll show you how attackers hide the payloads and bypass the victim’s antivirus. Furthermore, we’ll teach you how to spoof IP / MAC address and perform an SQL injection attack and prevent it on your website. We will create an evil twin and demonstrate how to intercept network traffic. Later, you will get familiar with Shodan and Intrusion Detection and will explore the features and tools associated with it. Toward the end, we cover tools such as Yardstick, Ubertooth, Wifi Pineapple, and Alfa used for wireless penetration testing and auditing. This book will show the tools and platform to ethically hack your own network whether it is for your business or for your personal home Wi-Fi.
