The book examines various ethical hacking and penetration testing concepts and techniques employed in the computing world. It will take you from a beginner to advanced level. I will discuss various topics ranging from traditional to modern ones, such as Networking security, Linux security, Web Applications structure and security, Mobile Applications architecture and security, Hardware security, and the hot topic of IoT security. At the end of the book, I will share with you some real attacks.
The layout of the book is easy to walk-through. My purpose is to present you with case exposition and show you actual attacks, while utilizing a large set of KALI tools (Enumeration, Scanning, Exploitation, Persistence Access, Reporting and Social Engineering tools) in order to get you started quickly.
Before jumping into penetration testing, you will first learn how to set up your own lab and install the needed software to get you started. All the attacks explained in this book are launched against real devices, and nothing is theoretical. The book will demonstrate how to fully control victims' devices such as servers, workstations, and mobile phones. The book can also be interesting to those looking for quick hacks such as controlling victim's camera, screen, mobile contacts, emails and SMS messages.
