The Basics of Hacking and Penetration Testing serves as an introduction to the steps required to complete a penetration test or perform an ethical hack from beginning to end. This book makes ethical hacking and penetration testing easy - no prior hacking experience is required. It shows how to properly utilize and interpret the results of the modern-day hacking tools required to complete a penetration test. With a simple and clean explanation of how to effectively utilize these tools - as well as the introduction to a four-step methodology for conducting a penetration test or hack - the book provides students with the know-how required to jump start their careers and gain a better understanding of offensive security.

The book is organized into 7 chapters that cover hacking tools such as Backtrack Linux, Google reconnaissance, MetaGooFil, dig, Nmap, Nessus, Metasploit, Fast Track Autopwn, Netcat, and Hacker Defender rootkit. Each chapter contains hands-on examples and exercises that are designed to teach learners how to interpret results and utilize those results in later phases. PowerPoint slides are available for use in class.

This book is an ideal reference for security consultants, beginning InfoSec professionals, and students.

Review:

"...an introduction to what ethical hacking involves, and a primer for more indepth technical volumes...it does get its hands dirty with guides to using the main tools. But each technique or piece of software is only covered to the depth required to give you a good feel for what’s going on..."--Network Security, December 1 2011

Review:

Ethical hacking and penetration testing made easy.
