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.

Wireless-based attacks

With the proliferation of wireless networks, the increase in security of these networks has never been more important. As with the wired, wireless has its fair share of utilities to both, audit and attack the various hosts and networks. As a penetration tester, it is our job to make sure that the wireless networks are set up correctly and that there are no other networks that are in range and shouldn't be there, as well as making sure that they are not interfering with the networks in-scope.

In the following section, I will show examples of some of the wireless utilities that I use during penetration testing. There are a lot of great tools out there, and I could probably devote a whole book just going over them, but I wanted to select a sample that shows a variety of testing strategies.

Cracking WPA2 with aircrack-ng

The aircrack-ng, in my opinion, is one of the greatest wireless penetration tools out there. It can crack both, WPA and WEP keys, by setting up a listening...
