4.0 von 5 Sternen Good starting point for beginners 3. April 2014
Von n - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm totally new to penetration testing, this book gave me important information: especially in step of setting up the penetration test abd the backbox interface (loved the list of all tool included with a brief description).
It's a easy to read text but you have to know at least the average commands of linux shell to bring out the maximum potential of the written information.
In less than 150 pages you can start testing and understand what's under the hood of a informatic system, not for advanced penetration testers but a good starting point.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 19. Mai 2014

I must say this book was a lot better then I expected.
It's a basic introduction to penetration testing using backbox linux.
When you start it will introduce you to backbox and the tools it has, then it goes through the steps of penetration testing, it does a good job introducing you in each chapter to some of the tools used for each step of the pen testing (info gathering, enumeration, vulnerability scanning..etc), and on the last 2 chapters you will go through the process of a full penetration test and report writing.

My only wish was that it was a bit more detailed on some of the tools, don't get me wrong it's a great book, especially for someone new to the penetration testing.

All in all I would recommend this book.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Detailed and concise 12. Mai 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
The penetration testing with Backbox is a book that is both detailed and concise. For any newbie with a basic knowledge of Linux, this is the right material for understanding end to end penetration testing with Backbox. The only drawback is that there is not enough information about the Metasploit framework on this material (sad because Metasploit is usually the exploit weapon of choice for the average penetration tester). Overall it is a good book worth every dollar. I expect the Backbox guys to follow up this material with a video tutorial.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction to this pentesting distro 11. Mai 2014
Von Philip A. Polstra - Veröffentlicht auf

'm not exactly a stranger to penetration testing. I like to do pentesting with armies of BeagleBones running my custom Linux distro, The Deck. When teaching pentesting in the classroom I often find myself reluctantly using Kali Linux just because it has the tools I need to teach included by default. It just so happens that the request to review this book corresponded with my having to perform a pentest on a network setup by students in one of my classes at the university. I decided to use BackBox for this test with the book as my guide.

What I liked about this book

I thought this book was very well written. It is relatively short with just over 100 pages of chapter content. It does a good job of pointing out the little gotchas that come with using anything for the first time. For example, the book covers how to fully setup OpenVAS in order to actually use it. The book also does a pretty good job of leading you through a typical pentest and the tools that might be used to perform it.

What this book covers

The first chapter is a overview of the rest of the book. Later chapters walk through the pentesting process which includes: information gathering, vulnerability assessment, exploitation, privilege escalation, maintaining access, and documentation.

What is missing

I don't really feel like there was anything missing from this book. While you could always have more coverage of the tools provided by any pentesting distro, this book does a great job of hitting the most commonly used packages. If I were to add anything it would be a couple of case studies to more completely explore the packages provided by BackBox.

The Net

Using this book as a guide I was able to perform a successful pentest using BackBox. I am strongly considering using BackBox in my upcoming pentesting class. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about BackBox.

It's a cheap book on Amazon, you can get the kindle edition for $10, which makes it a fairly priced, light read, however I don't think I'de pay more than $10 for this book. The book is a solid introduction to penetration testing with a scoped subset of tools, so I recommend it to people looking to get into penetration testing. The book is light in both technical detail and theory, but it provides solid working examples of tools and where they fit into the methodology, making it a great book for practically getting into pen-testing. There is certainly a lot left to be desired, in both explaining the theory and advanced techniques of penetration testing, as well as doing a deeper dive on the tools discussed. However, despite those critiques, this is the type of book you can hit the ground running with, and because BackBox isn't your standard pen-test kit, your bound to be introduced to a few cool, new tools for your repertoire. It should be mentioned that Stefan is part of the BackBox team as their public relations specialist, so I wouldn't exactly call this book unbiased.
