Book Description

This book teaches you to take your problem solving capabilities to the next level with the Bash shell, to assess network and application level security by leveraging the power of the command-line tools available with Kali Linux.

The book begins by introducing some of the fundamental bash scripting and information processing tools. Building on this, the next few chapters focus on detailing ways to customize your Bash shell using functionalities such as tab completion and rich text formatting. After the fundamental customization techniques and general purpose tools have been discussed, the book breaks into topics such as the command-line-based security tools in the Kali Linux operating system. The general approach in discussing these tools is to involve general purpose tools discussed in previous chapters to integrate security assessment tools. This is a one stop solution to learn Bash and solve information security problems.

What You Will Learn

  • Perform network enumeration techniques with Dig, whois, dnsenum, dnsmap, and others
  • Learn how to fuzz and reverse engineer using the Kali Linux command line tools
  • Exploit common web application vulnerabilities using skipfish, arcachi, and sqlmap
  • Accomplish man-in-the-middle attacks straight from your command line
