Lacks the specialization it advertises Dec 23 2013
By M. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a quick read for people familiar with penetration testing in general because there was very little specialization beyond the generalities of the discipline. My specialty is network penetration testing and I'm weaker on the Web app side of things. I was hoping for an in-depth study into what the title advertises, Web penetration with Kali. Instead, the book reads more like a very high level survey of tools available to a Web penetration tester. More time was spent on how to install, configure, and run the tools than on how Web pentesters use them in attacks.

A large portion of the content was padded with screenshots and step-by-step instructions on how to get the tools up and running. Most of the first half of the book covers pretty standard fare on what penetration testers do regardless of their focus, like recon, social engineering, and cracking passwords. Nothing I'd call Web-specific attacks. And at the end, an unexpectedly out of place diversion to file system forensics eats up a chapter as well. Doesn't do anything to help you with Web-based attacks, and is far too brief and summarized to help you with forensics.

I learned far more about the guts of Web application penetration testing; what the attack vectors are, how they work, what they look like, and which tools to use, from the OWASP Testing Guide.

Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux March 6 2014
By Bandit R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book is good for beginner Penetration Testers. It gives brief details on the tools on Kali Linux. Unfortunately the authors wrote about tools that were not on Kali Linux. I was hoping for details on the Kali Linux tools
