Book Description

This book is a practical guide that shows you the advantages of using Python for pentesting with the help of detailed code examples.

We start by exploring the basics of networking with Python and then proceed to network hacking. Next, we delve into hacking the application layer where we start with gathering information from a website. We then move on to concepts related to website hacking such as parameter tampering, DDoS, XSS, and SQL injection.

By reading this book, you will learn different techniques and methodologies that will familiarize you with the art of pentesting as well as creating automated programs to find the admin console, SQL injection, and XSS attack.
