Book Description

Kali Linux is a comprehensive penetration testing platform with advanced tools to identify, detect, and exploit the vulnerabilities uncovered in the target network environment. With Kali Linux, you can apply the appropriate testing methodology with defined business objectives and a scheduled test plan, resulting in successful penetration testing project engagement.

This book starts with the installation of Kali Linux. You will be able to create a full test environment to safely practice scanning, vulnerability assessment, and exploitation. You'll explore the essentials of penetration testing by collecting relevant data on the target network with the use of several footprinting and discovery tools.

As you make your way through the chapters, you'll focus on specific hosts and services via scanning and run vulnerability scans to discover various risks and threats within the target, which can then be exploited. In the concluding chapters, you'll apply techniques to exploit target systems in order to gain access and find a way to maintain that access. You'll also discover techniques and tools for assessing and attacking devices that are not physically connected to the network, including wireless networks.

By the end of this book, you will be able to use NetHunter, the mobile version of Kali Linux, and write a detailed report based on your findings.
