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.

I started off the chapter with various utilities to perform wired-based network attacks. This included snmp-based issues as well as DHCP then swithing from there to DOS-based attacks. I then pivoted to wireless attacks. These are very important, as wireless attacks tend to be easier to perform, since they don't require a physical connection into the network like some of the wired-based attacks do. On the wireless side, I showed various utilities to monitor the airways as well as how to attack wireless weaknesses such as WPA, WEP, and of course, social engineering around wireless. I then touched upon some Bluetooth-based utilities for monitoring what Bluetooth devices may be in range of the facility you as a penetration tester are testing. With more and more Bluetooth devices coming into...
