Applied Network Security

By: Arthur Salmon, Michael McLafferty, Warun Levesque

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.

Veil Framework

In this chapter, we will be working with the Veil Framework. This framework contains multiple tools to create payloads, hide payloads within executables or PDFs, deliver payloads, gather information, and allow for post-exploitation. Many hackers will use Veil because of how effective it is at encoding and delivering payloads. Remaining undetected by antivirus (AV) or Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) is a top priority for any hacker. This chapter will discuss how Veil is able to avoid detection by AV/IDS and how to best use the other Veil tools to maximum effect. This chapter will also contain a lab that will demonstrate how to create an encrypted payload using Veil-Evasion. After reading this chapter, you will have a solid understanding of the Veil Framework. You will also familiarize yourself with other powerful Veil tools such as Veil-Pillage, Veil-Ordnance, and Veil-PowerTools.
