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.

Protocol fuzzing with DotDotPwn

DotDotPwn is a slick multi-protocol fuzzer to discover traversal directory vulnerabilities within web servers. Fuzzing is the testing technique of looking for poor coding or security loopholes in software applications such as web servers or even operating systems. Because of this, DotDotPwn makes a good reconnaissance tool for finding various issues within the web server stack that you can later exploit.

Getting the most information about the environment now makes the exploitation phase much easier. We will note everything we can find and then exploit it at the appropriate time. Do not rush through the reconnaissance phase, as it will just lessen the overall quality of the penetration test. The more we can find now, the more we can exploit later.

First thing to know about dotdotpwn is that it supports many different protocols or modules. We will focus on the http module during the lab but there are other modules available such as tftp and ftp. Here are the available...
