The book also covers Active Directory concepts, enumeration, and attacks that can be leveraged to compromise Domain Controllers. As you advance, the book introduces the concepts of cloud computing servers, architecture, usage, recon, and attacks on cloud infrastructure such as AWS, Azure, and GCP.

By the end of this ethical hacking book, you'll be confident in performing advanced-level network attacks and be able to use multiple toolsets for your penetration testing projects such as Metasploit, Covenant, .NET binaries, and Mimikatz.
