What this book covers
Chapter 1, Getting Started, explains the configuration of a security lab and then the
installation and configuration of Kali Linux and other security tools.
Chapter 2, Reconnaissance, explains how to collect information on your target
using passive information-gathering techniques. Collecting subdomains, e-mail
addresses, and DNS enumeration are covered in depth.
Chapter 3, Discovery, explains gathering domain information on our target and
identifying hosts on a given network segment.
Chapter 4, Port Scanning, covers multiple tools and methods for finding open ports
on one or more hosts.
Chapter 5, Fingerprinting, explains identifying the services and versions associated
with them once having identified open ports on our target(s).
Chapter 6, Vulnerability Scanning, discusses ways to identify vulnerabilities based
on the services and versions found in the previous chapter.
Chapter 7, Denial of Service, covers how to execute several types of DoS attack.
Chapter 8, Working with Burp Suite, covers Burp Suite and how to use the many
tools it comes bundled with.
Chapter 9, Web Application Scanning, covers a number of tools and techniques for
testing web applications.
Chapter 10, Attacking the Browser with BeEF, covers the Browser Exploitation
Framework (BeEF), including configuration, hooking a browser, and a number
of exploits.
Chapter 11, Working with Sparta, looks at how to configure and modify Sparta. We
