    Default Book: Professional Penetration Testing

    Professional Penetration Testing: Creating and Operating a Formal Hacking Lab
    Thomas Wilhelm
    ISBN13: 9781597494250

    With this text, readers can conduct controlled attacks on a network through real-world examples of vulnerable and exploitable servers. The DVD includes instructional videos that replicate classroom instruction and live, real-world vulnerability simulations of complete servers.


    Has anyone read this? The book is expensive as heck, but with the book and a DVD containing BT, Herot live CDs and a bunch of other thing, i have a good feeling about it.

    Thomas AKA Grendal is the man responsible for bringing us the De-ice/herot.net discs and as I have heard is a extremely knowledgeable fellow. He has written lots of stuff and have spoken at many cons. I would recommend his book with out even reading it.

    I've read it as a reviewer, and it's great. I'm also quoted on the cover, endorsing it.

    Is that the one where you said "I liked it, I liked it a lot, it was much better than Cats, I would read it again and again."
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Buy the book.
    There is also an article in the hakin9 magazine (issue 807) from maybe two years ago by Thomas Wilhelm that contains a lot of good info on creating the de-ice series of disks.
    Here are some other books by/ with him as well http://www.de-ice.net/
