Testing web security is best done through simulating an attack. Kali Linux lets you do this to professional standards and this is the book you need to be fully up-to-speed with this powerful open-source toolkit. Overview Learn key reconnaissance concepts needed as a penetration tester Attack and exploit key features, authentication, and sessions on web applications Learn how to protect systems, write reports, and sell web penetration testing services In Detail Kali Linux is built for professional penetration testing and security auditing. It is the next-generation of BackTrack, the most popular open-source penetration toolkit in the world. Readers will learn how to think like real attackers, exploit systems, and expose vulnerabilities. Even though web applications are developed in a very secure environment and have an intrusion detection system and firewall in place to detect and prevent any malicious activity, open ports are a pre-requisite for conducting online business. These ports serve as an open door for attackers to attack these applications. As a result, penetration testing becomes essential to test the integrity of web-applications. Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux is a hands-on guide that will give you step-by-step methods on finding vulnerabilities and exploiting web applications. "Penetration Testing with Kali Linux" looks at the aspects of web penetration testing from the mind of an attacker. It provides real-world, practical step-by-step instructions on how to perform web penetration testing exercises. You will learn how to use network reconnaissance to pick your targets and gather information. Then, you will use server-side attacks to expose vulnerabilities in web servers and their applications. Client attacks will exploit the way end users use web applications and their workstations. You will also learn how to use open source tools to write reports and get tips on how to sell penetration tests and look out for common pitfalls. On the completion of this book, you will have the skills needed to use Kali Linux for web penetration tests and expose vulnerabilities on web applications and clients that access them. What you will learn from this book Perform vulnerability reconnaissance to gather information on your targets Expose server vulnerabilities and take advantage of them to gain privileged access Exploit client-based systems using web application protocols Learn how to use SQL and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks Steal authentications through session hijacking techniques Harden systems so other attackers do not exploit them easily Generate reports for penetration testers Learn tips and trade secrets from real world penetration testers Approach "Penetration Testing with Kali Linux" contains various penetration testing methods using BackTrack that will be used by the reader.

Do you hear news everyday on the latest hacking attack, but just don't quite understand what it is all about? Well this is the book for you. In BIT WARS, Dr. Thomas Hyslip presents the history of cybercrime, hacking and information warfare that has lead us to where we are today. Espionage, Stuxnet, Cyber Terrorism, Anonymous, TOR, the Deep Web, they are included. Hacking started as a quest for knowledge and curiosity, but has become a worldwide problem with no end in sight. The Center for Strategic and International Studies estimated the annual cost of cybercrime at more than $445 billion annually. Furthermore, the number and sophistication of attacks has steadily increased. In 2014, Target and Home Depot were victims of large scale point of sale attacks, and millions of credit and debit cards were stolen. Ebay lost the account information of over 233 million users, and Sony was attacked by North Korea in retaliation for the movie, “The Interview.” Read about it all in BIT WARS: Cyber Crime, Hacking and Information Warfare, and understand why you should be concerned.

The spectacular cyber attack on Sony Pictures and costly hacks of Target, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, and databases containing sensitive data on millions of U.S. federal workers have shocked the nation. Despite a new urgency for the president, Congress, law enforcement, and corporate America to address the growing threat, the hacks keep coming—each one more pernicious than the last—from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, the Middle East, and points unknown. The continuing attacks raise a deeply disturbing question: Is the issue simply beyond the reach of our government, political leaders, business leaders, and technology visionaries to resolve? In Hacked, veteran cybersecurity journalist Charlie Mitchell reveals the innovative, occasionally brilliant, and too-often hapless government and industry responses to growing cybersecurity threats. He examines the internal power struggles in the federal government, the paralysis on Capitol Hill, and the industry's desperate effort to stay ahead of both the bad guys and the government.
