Book Description

This book gives you the skills you need to use Python for penetration testing (pentesting), with the help of detailed code examples.

We start by exploring the basics of networking with Python and then proceed to . Then, you will delve into exploring Python libraries to perform various types of pentesting and ethical techniques. Next, we delve into the application layer, where we start by gathering information from a website. We then move on to concepts related to website ―such as parameter tampering, , XSS, and SQL injection.

By reading this book, you will learn different techniques and methodologies that will familiarize you with Python pentesting techniques, how to protect yourself, and how to create automated programs to find the admin console, SQL injection, and XSS attacks.

What you will learn

  • The basics of network pentesting including network scanning and sniffing
  • Wireless, wired attacks, and building traps for attack and torrent detection
  • Web server footprinting and web application attacks, including the XSS and SQL injection attack
  • Wireless frames and how to obtain information such as SSID, BSSID, and the channel number from a wireless frame using a Python script
  • The importance of web server signatures, email gathering, and why knowing the server signature is the first step in hacking

Who This Book Is For

If you are a Python programmer, a researcher, or an ethical and are interested in penetration testing with the help of Python, then this book is for you. Even if you are new to the field of ethical hacking, this book can help you find the vulnerabilities in your system so that you are ready to tackle any kind of attack or intrusion.
