An invaluable book and DVD package, Professional Penetration Testing: Creating and Operating a Formal Hacking Lab is designed to replicate the experience of in-classroom, instructor-led, penetration testing training, which costs the typical security professional (or their employer) $1,000 or more for the courses alone, plus T&E, and days upon days of non-billable hours. Expert author Thomas Wilhelm has delivered exactly this type of penetration testing training to countless security professionals and, for the first time, provides his years of experience, training, expertise, labs, and real-world vulnerability scenarios in a single book/DVD retail product.
Penetration testing is the act of testing one's own network (or that of a client) to find security vulnerabilities before these exact same holes are found and more importantly exploited by phishers, digital piracy groups, and almost countless other organized or individual malicious havkers. Addressing the profession holistically and practically, the material presented in this book targets all levels of hacking skills, benefitting both management and engineers in the trenches. This book bridges the gap between theoretical and hands-on knowledge of professional hacking techniques, targeting information systems and networks. It includes everything required to establish a secure hacking lab, learn methodologies, conduct attacks, and use real-world examples of vulnerable and exploitable servers.

  • Find out how to turn hacking and pen testing skills into a professional career

  • Understand how to conduct controlled attacks on a network through real-world examples of vulnerable and exploitable servers

  • Master project management skills necessary for running a formal penetration test and setting up a professional ethical hacking business

  • Discover metrics and reporting methodologies that provide experience crucial to a professional penetration tester

  • Learn through video - the DVD includes instructional videos that replicate classroom instruction and live, real-world vulnerability simulations of complete servers with known and unknown vulnerabilities to practice hacking skills in a controlled lab environment
