Web penetration testing by becoming an ethical hacker. Protect the web by learning the tools, and the tricks of the web application attacker. Key Features Builds on books and courses on penetration testing for beginners Covers both attack and defense perspectives Examines which tool to deploy to suit different applications and situations Book Description Becoming the Hacker will teach you how to approach web penetration testing with an attacker's mindset. While testing web applications for performance is common, the ever-changing threat landscape makes security testing much more difficult for the defender. There are many web application tools that claim to provide a complete survey and defense against potential threats, but they must be analyzed in line with the security needs of each web application or service. We must understand how an attacker approaches a web application and the implications of breaching its defenses. Through the first part of the book, Adrian Pruteanu walks you through commonly encountered vulnerabilities and how to take advantage of them to achieve your goal. The latter part of the book shifts gears and puts the newly learned techniques into practice, going over scenarios where the target may be a popular content management system or a containerized application and its network. Becoming the Hacker is a clear guide to web application security from an attacker's point of view, from which both sides can benefit. What you will learn Study the mindset of an attacker Adopt defensive strategies Classify and plan for standard web application security threats Prepare to combat standard system security problems Defend WordPress and mobile applications Use security tools and plan for defense against remote execution Who this book is for The reader should have basic security experience, for example, through running a network or encountering security issues during application development. Formal education in security is useful, but not required. This title is suitable for people with at least two years of experience in development, network management, or DevOps, or with an established interest in security.
A comprehensive guide in developing and deploying high performance microservices with Rust Key Features Start your microservices journey and get a broader perspective on microservices development using RUST 2018, Build, deploy, and test microservices using AWS Explore advanced techniques for developing microservices such as actor model, Requests Routing, and threads Book Description Microservice architecture is sweeping the world as the de facto pattern for building web-based applications. Rust is a language particularly well-suited for building microservices. It is a new system programming language that offers a practical and safe alternative to C. This book describes web development using the Rust programming language and will get you up and running with modern web frameworks and crates with examples of RESTful microservices creation. You will deep dive into Reactive programming, and asynchronous programming, and split your web application into a set of concurrent actors. The book provides several HTTP-handling examples with manageable memory allocations. You will walk through stateless high-performance microservices, which are ideally suitable for computation or caching tasks, and look at stateful microservices, which are filled with persistent data and database interactions. As we move along, you will learn how to use Rust macros to describe business or protocol entities of our application and compile them into native structs, which will be performed at full speed with the help of the server's CPU. Finally, you will be taken through examples of how to test and debug microservices and pack them into a tiny monolithic binary or put them into a container and deploy them to modern cloud platforms such as AWS. What you will learn Get acquainted with leveraging Rust web programming Get to grips with various Rust crates, such as hyper, Tokio, and Actix Explore RESTful microservices with Rust Understand how to pack Rust code to a container using Docker Familiarize yourself with Reactive microservices Deploy your microservices to modern cloud platforms such as AWS Who this book is for This book is for developers who have basic knowledge of RUST, and want to learn how to build, test, scale, and manage RUST microservices. No prior experience of writing microservices in RUST is assumed.
