DNS Security: Hacking and Defending the Domain Name System provides tactics on how to secure a Domain Name System (DNS) framework by exploring common DNS vulnerabilities using real-world examples of DNS exploits and providing step-by-step guidelines for securing the infrastructure.

The book is a timely reference as DNS is an integral part of the Internet that translates IP addresses into easily remembered domain names. The book focuses entirely on the security aspects of DNS, combining internal and external data to analyze and effectively prioritize network threats. It shows how to build a security infrastructure based around intelligence, demonstrating how theory can work in real-life situations. Presents a multi-platform approach, covering Linux, BSD, and Windows DNS security tipsDemonstrates how to implement DNS Security tools, including numerous screen shots and configuration examplesProvides a timely reference on DNS, an integral part of the Internet that translates IP addresses into easily remembered domain namesIncludes information of interest to those working in 4DNS, authoritative services, BIND files, buffer overflows, DDoS Attacks, firewalls, transaction signatures, and version control, amongst other topics

Over 70 recipes to master the most widely used penetration testing framework More than 80 recipes/practicaltasks that will escalate the reader's knowledge from beginner to an advanced level Special focus on the latest operating systems, exploits, and penetration testing techniques Detailed analysis of third party tools based on the Metasploit framework to enhance the penetration testing experience
In Detail
Metasploit® software helps security and IT professionals identify security issues, verify vulnerability mitigations, and manage expert-driven security assessments. Capabilities include smart exploitation, password auditing, web application scanning, and social engineering. Teams can collaborate in Metasploit and present their findings in consolidated reports. The goal of the software is to provide a clear understanding of the critical vulnerabilities in any environment and to manage those risks.
Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook targets both professionals and beginners to the framework. The chapters of the book are logically arranged with an increasing level of complexity and cover Metasploit aspects ranging from pre-exploitation to the post-exploitation phase thoroughly. The recipe structure of the book provides a good mix of both theoretical understanding and practical implementation.
This book will help readers in thinking from a hacker's perspective to dig out the flaws in target networks and also to leverage the powers of Metasploit to compromise them. It will take your penetration skills to the next level.
The book starts with the basics such as gathering information about your target and gradually covers advanced topics like building your own framework scripts and modules. The book goes deep into operating systems-based penetration testing techniques and moves ahead with client-based exploitation methodologies. In the post- exploitation phase, it covers meterpreter, antivirus bypass, ruby wonders, exploit building, porting exploits to framework, and third party tools like armitage, and SET.
Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook is the required guide to penetration testing and exploitation.
What you will learn from this book Set up a complete penetration testing environment using metasploit and virtual machines Learn to penetration-test popular operating systems such as Windows7, Windows 2008 Server, Ubuntu etc. Get familiar with penetration testing based on client side exploitation techniques with detailed analysis of vulnerabilities and codes Avail of exclusive coverage of antivirus bypassing techniques using metasploit Master post-exploitation techniques such as exploring the target, keystrokes capturing, sniffing, pivoting, setting persistent connections etc. Build and analyze meterpreter scripts in Ruby Build and export exploits to framework Use extension tools like Armitage, SET etc.
Approach
This is a Cookbook which follows a practical task-based style. There are plenty of code and commands used for illustration which make your learning curve easy and quick.
Who this book is written for
This book targets both professional penetration testers as well as new users of Metasploit who wish to gain expertise over the framework. The book requires basic knowledge of scanning, exploitation, and Ruby language

The Raspberry Pi is deceptively simple. Plug it in, boot it up, and use it as a personal computer, or attach a million gizmos and modules and invent something new and amazing. Either way, what it can actually do is not simple, and you should know exactly what the Raspberry Pi hardware is all about. Raspberry Pi Hardware Reference, from Mastering the Raspberry Pi, is the hardware guide you need on your desk or workbench.

Every detail is covered: from power to memory, from the CPU to working with USB. You'll find all the details about working with both wired and wireless Ethernet, SD cards, and the UART interface. The GPIO chapter is invaluable, covering power budgeting, access, and even small but important details like the correct usage of sudo when working with GPIO pins. You'll also find details about the 1-Wire driver, the I2C bus, and the SPI bus. If you need to know anything about your Raspberry Pi's hardware, you will find it here, in Raspberry Pi Hardware Reference.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Informatik – Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, Ravensburg, früher: Berufsakademie Ravensburg (Mobile Informatik), Veranstaltung: Verteilte Systeme, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit soll zunächst ein Grundverständnis und die Funktionsweise von Chatbots dargelegt werden. Dabei soll die Technologie der Chatbots anhand von A.I.M.L. näher beschrieben werden. Weiter sollen in dieser Arbeit Anwendungsfälle beschrieben werden, bei denen Bots die Nutzung des Internet im Vergleich zu Webseiten vereinfachen können. So werden die Messenger-Plattformen jeden Monat mächtiger, wehalb die Nutzung von Chatbots immer interessanter wird. Daher bieten Chatbots großes Potential was die Vereinfachung des Internets angeht. Im Anschluss an die Anwendungsfälle soll dem Lesen ein Praxisbeispiel gegeben werden, inwiefern ein Raspberry Pi mittels WhatsApp gesteuert werden kann. Darauffolgend werden aufkommende Schwachstellen im Rahmen von Chatbots erläutert. So spielen hier Themen wie Datensicherheit, Persönlichkeitsrechte, und Cyber-Kriminalität eine wesentliche Rolle. Letztendlich erfolgt eine kritische Würdigung in welcher der Einsatz von Chatbots bewertet wird.

Viele Unternehmen setzen auf eigene Apps, welche aber immer seltener angenommen werden. Die Frage ist: Werden Apps von Bots verdrängt? "Chatbots sind die neuen Apps ", sagte Microsofts CEO Satya Nadella Anfang des Jahres. Mit dieser Aussage ist Nadella nicht allein. So gibt es viele Entscheidungsträger, welche diese Meinung teilen.
