The Metasploit framework is one of the most widely used tools to carry out penetration testing on various services. It is a tool that enables users to develop and execute exploit code against remote target machines. Using the Metasploit framework not only allows users to test huge networks automatically, it also extends post-exploitation capabilities. While working with Metasploit libraries and automating exploit procedures, readers will also expand their capabilities and exploitation skills with languages such as like Ruby, Assembly, and others.

Manual penetration testing techniques consume a lot of time, which is the main issue with them. This book covers a number of techniques and methodologies that will help readers learn and master the Metasploit framework. Not only does it cover the essentials of exploit development, it also enables readers to develop high-quality exploits and modules for variety of applications.

The following essential topics are covered in the book:

Chapter 1: Approaching a Penetration Test Using Metasploit

Chapter 2: Reinventing Metasploit

Chapter 3: The Exploit Formulation Process

Chapter 4: Porting Exploits

Chapter 5: Offstage Access to Testing Services

Chapter 6: Virtual Test Grounds and Staging

Chapter 7: Sophisticated Client-side Attacks

Chapter 8: The Social Engineering Toolkit

Chapter 9: Speeding Up Penetration Testing

Chapter 10: Visualizing with Armitage

Mastering Metasploit is written for penetration testers, security analysts, security engineers, and any developer who has basic knowledge of Metasploit and wants to master the framework.
