Evade antiviruses and bypass firewalls with the most widely used penetration testing frameworks
Gain insights into the latest antivirus evasion techniques
Set up a complete pentesting environment using Metasploit and virtual machines
Discover a variety of tools and techniques that can be used with Kali Linux
Penetration testing or ethical hacking is a legal and foolproof way to identify vulnerabilities in your system. With thorough penetration testing, you can secure your system against the majority of threats.
This Learning Path starts with an in-depth explanation of what hacking and penetration testing is. You'll gain a deep understanding of classical SQL and command injection flaws, and discover ways to exploit these flaws to secure your system. You'll also learn how to create and customize payloads to
evade antivirus software and bypass an organization's defenses. Whether it's exploiting server vulnerabilities and attacking client systems, or compromising mobile phones and installing backdoors, this Learning Path will guide you through all this and more to improve your defense against online
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll have the knowledge and skills you need to invade a system and identify all its vulnerabilities.
This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:
Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux - Third Edition by Juned Ahmed Ansari and Gilberto Najera-Gutierrez
Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook - Third Edition by Abhinav Singh , Monika Agarwal, et al
What you will learn
Build and analyze Metasploit modules in Ruby
Integrate Metasploit with other penetration testing tools
Use server-side attacks to detect vulnerabilities in web servers and their applications
Explore automated attacks such as fuzzing web applications
Identify the difference between hacking a web application and network hacking
Deploy Metasploit with the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES)
Use MSFvenom to generate payloads and backdoor files, and create shellcode
Who this book is for
This Learning Path is designed for security professionals, web programmers, and pentesters who want to learn vulnerability exploitation and make the most of the Metasploit framework. Some understanding of penetration testing and Metasploit is required, but basic system administration skills and the
ability to read code are a must.
An expert guide to helping you use DevOps techniques with the latest GitLab version to optimize and manage your software workflow
Delve into GitLab's architecture, and install and configure it to fit your environment
Learn about the underlying principles of Agile software development and DevOps
Explore Gitlab's features to manage enterprise cloud-native applications and services
GitLab is an open source repository management and version control toolkit with functions for enterprises and personal software projects. It offers configurability options, extensions, and APIs that make it an ideal tool for enterprises to manage the software development life cycle.
This book begins by explaining GitLab options and the components of the GitLab architecture. You will learn how to install and set up GitLab on-premises and in the cloud, along with understanding how to migrate code bases from different systems, such as GitHub, Concurrent Versions System, Team
Foundation Version Control, and Subversion. Later chapters will help you implement DevOps culture by introducing the workflow management tools in GitLab and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD). In addition to this, the book will guide you through installing GitLab on a range of
cloud platforms, monitoring with Prometheus, and deploying an environment with GitLab. You'll also focus on the GitLab CI component to assist you with creating development pipelines and jobs, along with helping you set up GitLab runners for your own project. Finally, you will be able to choose a
high availability setup that fits your needs and helps you monitor and act on results obtained after testing.
By the end of this book, you will have gained the expertise you need to use GitLab features effectively, and be able to integrate all phases in the development process.
What you will learn
Install GitLab on premises and in the cloud using a variety of configurations
Conduct data migration from the SVN, TFS, CVS, and GitHub platforms to GitLab
Use GitLab runners to develop different types of configurations in software development
Plan and perform CI/CD by using GitLab features
Monitor and secure your software architecture using Prometheus and Grafana
Implement DevOps culture by introducing workflow management tools in GitLab
Who this book is for
If you are a software developer, DevOps professional, or any developer who wants to master GitLab for productive repository management in your day-to-day tasks, this book is for you. Basic understanding of the software development workflow is assumed.
