Good Books to read??
Is hacking exposed 5th edition a good book to learn from?
If anyone can point me in the right directions of what books are good one for Linux, Network Security, Network Vulnarabilities, and ect..., I would much appreciate it.
Linux network administration is a good learn linux book. We used it my freshman year of college and i still use it a reference.
Cisco Penetration Testing is another good one on ways to approach Pen testing and exploits.
Im waiting for the metasploit book which should be great!
hope those first 2 books help.
[editz] I havent gotten around to it yet, but i hear the 2 books by kevin mtnick are good. Art of intrustion and art of deception. [/editz]
Thanx for suggestions.
I am going to order a couple of books tomorrow. If anyone else has any good suggestions please feel free to post.
hacking exposed is a waste of money. A huge chunk of the book just lists exploits and a *VERY* brief description of what it does. You can get better exploits and how its done from milw0rm. Just my 2 pesos for ya.
