Book Description

The 3rd edition of Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux shows you how to set up a lab and understand the nature and mechanics of attacking websites, and explains classical attacks in great depth. This edition is heavily updated, taking the latest Kali Linux changes to 2017.3 and the most recent attacks into account. Kali LInux shines when it comes to client side attacks and fuzzing in particular, which is covered in depth towards the end of the book.

From the start of the book, you'll be given a thorough grounding in the concepts of hacking and penetration testing itself, and you'll get to know about the tools used in Kali Linux that relate to web application hacking. Then, you will gain a deep understanding of classical SQL and command injection flaws and of course, the many ways to exploit these flaws. Web penetration testing also needs a general account of client side attacks, which is rounded out by a long discussion of scripting and input validation flaws.

There is also a rather an important chapter on cryptographic implementation flaws where the most recent problems with cryptographic layers in the networking stack are discussed. The importance of these attacks cannot be overstated, and so the defenses against them are relevant for most Internet users and of course, penetration testers.

By the end of the book, you will use an automated technique, called fuzzing, to be able to identify flaws in a web application. Finally, you will understand the web application vulnerabilities and the ways in which they can be exploited using the tools in Kali Linux.
