IoT Penetration Testing Cookbook

By: Aaron Guzman, Aditya Gupta

Overview of this book

IoT is an upcoming trend in the IT industry today; there are a lot of IoT devices on the market, but there is a minimal understanding of how to safeguard them. If you are a security enthusiast or pentester, this book will help you understand how to exploit and secure IoT devices. This book follows a recipe-based approach, giving you practical experience in securing upcoming smart devices. It starts with practical recipes on how to analyze IoT device architectures and identify vulnerabilities. Then, it focuses on enhancing your pentesting skill set, teaching you how to exploit a vulnerable IoT device, along with identifying vulnerabilities in IoT device firmware. Next, this book teaches you how to secure embedded devices and exploit smart devices with hardware techniques. Moving forward, this book reveals advanced hardware pentesting techniques, along with software-defined, radio-based IoT pentesting with Zigbee and Z-Wave. Finally, this book also covers how to use new and unique pentesting techniques for different IoT devices, along with smart devices connected to the cloud. By the end of this book, you will have a fair understanding of how to use different pentesting techniques to exploit and secure various IoT devices.

Configuring continuous integration testing for web applications

Whether an IoT device uses a web application or web service for messaging, its code should be statically and dynamically analyzed for software security bugs. In this recipe, we will demonstrate how to configure dynamic scanning of web application builds prior to production deployments.

Getting ready

In this recipe, we will use Jenkins as our automation build server and OWASP ZAP as our dynamic scanner. We will use the OWASP ZAP Jenkins plugin and the OWASP ZAP tool that can be downloaded via the following link:

How to do it...

To setup continuous integration testing for web applications, use the following steps to create your environment.

  1. First, we need to download the OWASP ZAP plugin, which can be done via Jenkin's plugin manager, as shown in the following screenshot:
