A new Kali Linux book written by Cameron Buchanan has recently been published. This book published by Packt Publishing focuses on using Kali Linux and other Linux versions to create “Capture the Flag” (CTF) challenges:
“If you are a penetration testing team leader or individual who wishes to challenge yourself or your friends in the creation of penetration testing assault courses, this is the book for you. The book assumes a basic level of penetration skills and familiarity with the Kali Linux operating system.”
About This Book
- Put the skills of the experts to the test with these tough and customisable pentesting projects
- Develop each challenge to suit your specific training, testing, or client engagement needs
- Hone your skills, from wireless attacks to social engineering, without the need to access live systems
I am a technical reviewer for a lot of security books, magazines and training material and had the honor of being one of the reviewers on this project. The book is geared for those who have had some experience as a security tester and is familiar with using Kali Linux and penetration testing tools.
I found the book interesting and really liked Cameron’s sense of humor. Though it is not a book for someone who has never used Kali before, those who are interested in how Capture the Flag type contents can be run from a technical perspective will really enjoy this book.
