New Book Overview: “Basic Security Testing with Kali Linux, 3rd Edition”

My newest book, a cover to cover update of my Basic Kali book is now available! After numerous requests for an update, the new “Basic Security Testing with Kali Linux, 3rd Edition” is here!

What was intended to be a quick version change update, turned into a 6-month overhaul. It is amazing how much can change in the security world in 2 years. All chapters have been revamped, with a lot of new material added. The latest book is also 50 pages longer than the previous version!

What’s New:

  • The entire book was updated to Kali Linux 2018
  • All tools & tutorials updated
  • Obsolete tools removed
  • Many new tools added
  • Password Cracking section expanded
  • Kali on RPi chapter totally revamped
  • Kali NetHunter chapter added

Table of Contents List:

I was going to use Metasploitable3 for the Windows target in this book, but with the install complexity (and install issues) of Ms3, I decided to stay with Windows 7. I also occasionally use Windows 10 as a test target and Server 2016 is mentioned a few times as well. I will most likely use Ms3 for the upcoming advanced book. Metasploitable2 is still used for some of the Linux tutorials, as it is very easy for new users to use and follow.

The Basic Kali book is used by Universities, Training Centers, and in Ethical Hacking classes worldwide. It is also used as a training aid for multiple US Government Agencies. I have also been told numerous times that my Kali series is excellent prep material for the OSCP certification. The book is now in its third revision, with major changes made from user feedback and requests.

I have been completely shocked and humbled by the popularity of a book that was originally written as an extension of my blog posts and has evolved into a worldwide basic training guide for the exceptional Kali Linux ethical hacking platform. This continuing project would have never been possible without the flood of support and feedback from the infosec community. I am very excited to present this new version to the community and look forward to hearing your feedback and comments.

Check it out on Amazon.com.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
