Kali Linux: Advanced Methods and Strategies to Learn Kali Linux By Ethan Thorpe Cover Image


Are businesses run by organizations all about generating revenue, or there are more aspects to it? Have you wondered about how organizations today secure huge amounts of data they have about their customers? Have you thought about the effort that an organization puts in to securing data that is sensitive? Does this data include information about both the organization and the customer? Are you a data security enthusiast who wants to know about the process of securing data and wants to learn more about the security domain? Are you an aspiring IT Security professional, an Ethical Hacker, or a Penetration Tester?

If you answered yes to all those questions, this is the book for you. This book will take you on a journey through the penetration testing life cycle using the most advanced tool available today, Kali Linux. You will learn about the five stages of penetration testing life cycle: Reconnaissance, Scanning, Exploitation, Maintaining Access, and Reporting and learn about the most common Kali Linux tools that can be utilized in all these stages.

This book is for you if you are a technical professional who can benefit from knowing how penetration testers work. You will gain knowledge about the techniques used by penetration testers, which you could further use to make your systems secure. The knowledge in this book is not limited to developers, server admins, database admins, or network admins. You could transition from being a technical professional to a professional penetration tester by reading through this book, which will give you all the information you need. The knowledge that you already possess as a technical expert will give you the advantage of learning about penetration testing and Kali Linux in no time. The book will take you through examples that give you a step by step guide to using Kali Linux tools in all the five stages of the penetration testing life cycle. By trying out these examples by setting up your own Kali Linux system (which you already did in book one), you will be on your way to becoming a Penetration Tester. Throughout this book, you will gather information on the following:

  • How do firewalls work in Kali Linux?
  • How does the hacking process work?
  • An introduction to Reconnaissance
  • An introduction to Scanning
  • Applications used in reconnaissance and scanning
  • An introduction to Exploitation
  • Applications and techniques used in exploitation
  • How do you continue to maintain access into the system?
  • What is reporting and the different tools used in reporting

If you are an aspiring security engineer, the understanding of penetration testing will help you make your systems at home or your organization ever more secure. It will help you broaden your thought process and let you foresee how an attacker sees things in an information system.

However, do note that if you are someone who is trying to penetrate the National Security Agency or a bank, this book is not for you. We also do not recommend the book for security professionals who have been working on penetration testing and Kali Linux for a considerable number of years in their career. Our book is not for anyone who intends to break the law with the knowledge provided, and our objective is to introduce people to penetration testing as a way to make information systems more and more secure.
