Penetration Testing Bootcamp

By: Jason Beltrame

Overview of this book

Penetration Testing Bootcamp delivers practical, learning modules in manageable chunks. Each chapter is delivered in a day, and each day builds your competency in Penetration Testing. This book will begin by taking you through the basics and show you how to set up and maintain the C&C Server. You will also understand how to scan for vulnerabilities and Metasploit, learn how to setup connectivity to a C&C server and maintain that connectivity for your intelligence gathering as well as offsite processing. Using TCPDump filters, you will gain understanding of the sniffing and spoofing traffic. This book will also teach you the importance of clearing up the tracks you leave behind after the penetration test and will show you how to build a report from all the data obtained from the penetration test. In totality, this book will equip you with instructions through rigorous tasks, practical callouts, and assignments to reinforce your understanding of penetration testing.

Gathering all your data

Now that all the tests have been performed and evidence has been collected, it is time to gather all of our data. Hopefully, you have been keeping it well organized on your C&C server, as that will make the entire process much easier. Typically, I start the entire process by breaking down the data into three parts. This will start the process of getting me to that final structure that will allow me to turn all that data into the finalized product.

Here are the first three categories I break the information down into:

  • Reports
  • Diagrams
  • Vulnerability/findings information

I then take the vulnerability evidence that contains screenshots, scripts, and notes and move them into their respective vulnerabilities, sorted by the vulnerability. This allows for an easier migration to writing.

For example, looking back on the Chapter 8, Web Application Attacks, I would typically break down the vulnerabilities from Chapter 4, Vulnerability Scanning and Metasploit,vulnerability evidence...
