About this book
The industrial cybersecurity industry has grown significantly in recent years. To truly secure today's critical infrastructure, red teams must be employed to continuously test and exploit the security integrity of a company's people, processes, and products. This pentesting book takes a slightly different approach than most by helping you to gain hands-on experience with equipment that you’ll come across in the field. This will enable you to understand how industrial equipment interacts and operates within an operational environment.
The book begins by helping you get to grips with the basics of industrial processes, and then shows you how to create and break the process, along with gathering open source intel to create a threat landscape for your potential customer. As you advance, you'll find out how to install and utilize offensive techniques used by professional hackers. Throughout the book, you'll explore industrial equipment, open source intel gathering, port and service discovery, pivoting, and finally launch attacks against systems in an industrial network.
By the end of this penetration testing book, you'll not only understand how to analyze and navigate the intricacies of an industrial control system (ICS) but will also gain essential offensive and defensive skills to proactively protect industrial networks from modern cyber attacks.
