When it comes to creating powerful and effective hacking tools, Python is the language of choice for most security analysts. But just how does the magic happen? In Black Hat Python, the latest from Ajay Kumar Tiwari (author of the best-sellingMastering kali linux), you'll explore the darker side of Python's capabilities—writing network sniffers, manipulating packets, infecting virtual machines, creating stealthy trojans, and more. You'll learn how to: Create a trojan command-and-control using GitHub Detect sandboxing and automate common malware tasks, like keylogging and screenshotting Escalate Windows privileges with creative process control Use offensive memory forensics tricks to retrieve password hashes and inject shellcode into a virtual machine Extend the popular Burp Suite web-hacking tool Abuse Windows COM automation to perform a man-in-the-browser attack Exfiltrate data from a network most sneakily Insider techniques and creative challenges throughout show you how to extend the hacks and how to write your own exploits. When it comes to offensive security, your ability to create powerful tools on the fly is indispensable. Learn how in Python for hackers.
Blockchain – Cryptocurrency Technology
Blockchain is a technology that is already changing the way our economy works. While it’s very radical, there are so many applications of this technology in finances, security, banking and so much more that it’s inevitable to expand exponentially beyond these sectors. This book is going to mainly explore the Blockchain technology basics and applications in cryptocurrency; but more importantly, how it will eventually make a difference in your everyday life.

Internet Congestion Control provides a description of some of the most important topics in the area of congestion control in computer networks, with special emphasis on the analytical modeling of congestion control algorithms.
The field of congestion control has seen many notable advances in recent years and the purpose of this book, which is targeted towards the advanced and intermediate reader, is to inform about the most important developments in this area. The book should enable the reader to gain a good understanding of the application of congestion control theory to a number of application domains such as Data Center Networks, Video Streaming, High Speed Links and Broadband Wireless Networks. When seen through the lens of analytical modeling, there are a number of common threads that run through the design and analysis of congestion control protocols in all these different areas, which are emphasized in this book. The book also cuts a path through the profusion of algorithms in the literature, and puts the topic on a systematic and logical footing.

Web sites are dynamic, static, and most of the time a combination of both. Web sites needs to protect their databases to assure security. An SQL injection attacks interactive web applications that provide database services. These applications take user inputs and use them to create an SQL query at run time. In an SQL injection attack, an attacker might insert a malicious crafted SQL query as input to perform an unauthorized database operation. Using SQL injection attacks, an attacker can retrieve, modify or can delete confidential sensitive information from the database. It may jeopardize the confidentiality, trust and security of Web sites which totally depends on databases. This report presents a “code reengineering” that implicitly protects the web applications from SQL injection attacks. It uses an original approach that combines static as well as dynamic analysis. In this report, I mentioned an automated technique for moving out SQL injection vulnerabilities from Java code by converting plain text inputs received from users into prepared statements.
The Basics of Hacking and Penetration Testing, 2nd Ed. serves as an introduction to the steps required to complete a penetration test or perform an ethical hack from beginning to end. No prior hacking experience is needed. You will learn how to properly utilize and interpret the results of modern day hacking tools, which are required to complete a penetration test. Tool coverage includes Backtrack and Kali Linux, Google reconnaissance, MetaGooFil, DNS interrogation, Nmap, Nessus, Metasploit, the Social Engineer Toolkit (SET) , w3af, Netcat, post exploitation tactics, the Hacker Defender rootkit, and more. The book provides a simple and clean explanation of how to effectively utilize the tools and introduces a four-step methodology for conducting a penetration test or hack. You will be provided with the know-how required to jump start your career or gain a better understanding of offensive security. The book walks through each of the steps and tools in a structured, orderly manner, allowing readers to understand how the output from each tool can be fully utilized in the subsequent phases of the penetration test. This process allows readers to clearly see how the tools and phases function and relate.
·The second edition includes updated information covering Kali Linux as well as focusing on the seminal tools required to complete a penetration test New tools added including the Social Engineer Toolkit, Meterpreter, w3af and more!Each chapter contains hands-on examples and exercises that are designed to teach you how to interpret the results and utilize those results in later phasesWritten by an author who works in the field as a Penetration Tester and who teaches Offensive Security, Penetration Testing, and Ethical Hacking, and Exploitation classes at Dakota State University
