This book helps you create virtual environments for advanced penetration testing, enabling you to build a multi-layered architecture to include firewalls, IDS/IPS, and web application firewalls.
A penetration test, also known as pentest, is a method of assessing computer and network security by replicating an attack on a computer system or network from the outside world and internal threats. With the increase of advanced hackers and threats to our virtual world, pentesting is an absolute necessity.
Building Virtual Pentesting Labs for Advanced Penetration Testing will teach you how to build your own labs and give you a proven process to test these labs; a process that is currently used in industry by global pentesting teams. You will also learn a systematic approach to professional security testing, building routers, firewalls, and web servers to hone your pentesting skills.
This book includes:
Build and enhance your existing pentesting methods and skills
Get a solid methodology and approach to testing
Step-by-step tutorial helping you build complex virtual architecture
