Uncover security vulnerabilities and harden your system against attacks! With this guide you’ll learn to set up a virtual learning environment where you can test out hacking tools, from Kali Linux to hydra and Wireshark. Then expand your understanding of offline hacking, external safety checks, penetration testing in networks, and other essential security techniques, with step-by-step instructions. With information on mobile, cloud, and IoT security you can fortify your system against any threat!
- Understand IT system vulnerabilities and identify attack vectors
- Learn to secure multiple infrastructures, including Linux, Microsoft Windows, cloud, and mobile
- Master pen testing with tools like Metaspolit, Kali Linux, hydra, Open-VAS, Empire, Pwnagotchi, and more
In this book, you’ll learn about:
1.Key Concepts and Tools
Set up your environment with Metasploitable and Juice Shop and install Kali Linux. Then explore hacking tools like nmap, hydra, and Armitage that will assist you with the more complex practices covered in later chapters.
