Regardless of your skill set or experience, this publication provides a detailed step-by-step of how to install and use the various tools within the Kali Linux suite. Not familiar with Linux? Authors Wolf and Bo provide an overview of how to prepare bootable media and install the software. If you’re already there, skip ahead to the fun stuff. I highly recommend that you follow the recommendations within the book. These are tried and proven methods that teach how to successfully exploit vulnerabilities within the Windows environment, for research and blue team style purposes. Never attempt these techniques unless you’re authorized to perform these activities as part of your responsibilities or you have a controlled environment.
In the end, this book not only teaches the practice of defeating security controls, it also teaches the principles of computer science. While there are many command line switches to have fun with, the authors also describe what they mean and why they’re relevant. This is important as it teaches the fundamentals of good, core security and not simply memorizing switches for known security tools. I highly recommend this book for any level of security professional. For me, I jumped around a bit, but in the end, it made me a much stronger security professional.
