Develop foundational skills in ethical hacking and penetration testing while getting ready to pass the certification exam
Key FeaturesLearn how to look at technology from the standpoint of an attackerUnderstand the methods that attackers use to infiltrate networksPrepare to take and pass the exam in one attempt with the help of hands-on examples and mock testsBook Description
With cyber threats continually evolving, understanding the trends and using the tools deployed by attackers to determine vulnerabilities in your system can help secure your applications, networks, and devices. To outmatch attacks, developing an attacker’s mindset is a necessary skill, which you can hone with the help of this cybersecurity book.
This study guide takes a step-by-step approach to helping you cover all the exam objectives using plenty of examples and hands-on activities. You’ll start by gaining insights into the different elements of InfoSec and a thorough understanding of ethical hacking terms and concepts. You’ll then learn about various vectors, including network-based vectors, software-based vectors, mobile devices, wireless networks, and IoT devices. The book also explores attacks on emerging technologies such as the cloud, IoT, web apps, and servers and examines prominent tools and techniques used by hackers. Finally, you’ll be ready to take mock tests, which will help you test your understanding of all the topics covered in the book.
By the end of this book, you’ll have obtained the information necessary to take the 312-50 exam and become a CEH v11 certified ethical hacker.
