Book Released: Basic Security Testing with Kali Linux

Basic Security Testing with Kali LinuxMy book, “Basic Security Testing with Kali Linux” was updated for 2015!

With computer hacking attacks making headline news on a frequent occasion, it is time for companies and individuals to take a more active stance on securing their computer systems.

Kali Linux is an Ethical Hacking platform that allows good guys to use the same tools and techniques that a hacker would use so they can find issues with their security before the bad guys do.

In Basic Security Testing with Kali Linux, you will learn basic examples of how hackers find out information about your company, find weaknesses in your security and how they gain access to your system.

This hands-on, step by step learning book covers topics like:

• Kali Linux Introduction and Overview
• Metasploit & Metasploitable 2 Tutorials
• Information Gathering
• A section on Shodan (the “Hacker’s Google”)
• Exploiting Windows and Linux Systems
• Escalating Privileges in Windows • Wireless (WiFi) Attacks
• Social Engineering Attacks
• Password Attacks
• Kali on a Raspberry Pi
• Securing your Network

Though no network can be completely “Hacker Proof” knowing how an attacker works will help put you on the right track of better securing your network.

  1. I bought this book around 3 months ago, it is the first one to open my library of pentesting, I’m still getting my bachelor in computer science

    • Thank you so much, I hope you enjoyed it! I would love any feedback (positive or negative) that you would like to provide.

      I am working on a follow up book as we speak that picks up where Basic testing left off. Working on a kicking chapter on security testing Android devices with Kali right now.

      Thanks again!
